Tokyo Paralympics 2020 day five: triathlon, rowing, swimming, wheelchair rugby and more – live!
T36 200m gold for China
Russian Gnezdilov reigns in shot put
Hello, no sooner have I logged on than Russian shot putter Denis Gnezdilov has set a world record on his way to winning gold in the men’s F40 category. He thew 11.16m, which easily accounts for the previous record of 11.01m set in February by Portugal’s Miguel Monteiro. Iraq’s silver medallist Garrah Tnaiash was breathing down his neck with 11.15m while Monteiro claimed bronze with 10.76.
Righto, knock off time for me. So much more to come. Emma Kemp is ready to take you through it.
