Peacock struts his stuff

Rio Paralympics 2016: Jonnie Peacock wins 100m gold

So, just the seven casual gold medals today for Great Britain. No biggie.

Watch Jonnie Peacock's golden moment

That puts ParalympicsGB on 12 golds overall, behind China's 18, and 27 medals of all colours.

GB took 34 golds at London 2012 - with eight days of competition remaining, that tally is in jeopardy.

How many will it be tomorrow? Check out our day-by-day guide to get the lowdown on what to look out for.

We'll be back tomorrow to do it all again. Join us.

Silver medal - Stephanie Slater

Women's 100m butterfly S8

Did you blink just then? You may have missed another British medal.

Stephanie Slater has topped off a magnificent day by taking silver in the 100m butterfly S8 final.

She pushed American favourite Jess Long down into third, with Ukrainian Kateryna Istomina taking gold with a Paralympic record of 1min 9.04secs.

Magic mouth

Table tennis

There are so many magnificent images from the Paralympics, and this one is up among the best of them.

Egypt's Ibrahim Hamadtou lost both of his arms in a train accident at the age of 10 - but the married father of three has not let that stop him from becoming a international table tennis player.

Hamadtou plays by holding the bat in his mouth and swinging his head - he typically faces opponents who use their hands.

Yesterday, he lost his first group game in the class six men's singles to Britain's David Wetherill, who has a bone development disorder.

Jonnie Peacock just nicked it on the line...

Actually, it was a victory margin of 0.21secs. Gargantuan. Dominant.

He's had his doubters & played down his prospects, but WHAT A WIN by Jonnie Peacock - 2x Paralympic 100m champion!!!

He's had his doubters & played down his prospects, but WHAT A WIN by Jonnie Peacock - 2x Paralympic 100m champion!!!

Experience counts for everything - Peacock

Jonnie Peacock, speaking to Channel 4 after his T44 100m gold medal victory, "It's times like this where you look back on your experience and it's so easy to get distracted.  I just got to 40 metres then I kept pushing and that's when I pulled away. 

"I don't think the pressure was on me. Jarryd (Wallce, USA) has been running really well and I wasn't the favourite in that race.  I think and the pressure was all on Jarryd but my experience came through tonight."

Jonnie Peacock has joked that he would make an engagement ring for Sally Brown, a T46 sprinter, out of bone removed from his ankle.

Firstly, urgh.

Secondly, cooooool.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Jonnie Peacock a couple of times - he's everything he's cracked up to be.

Friendly, pleasant and the complete antithesis of a superstar athlete.

And it's all being summed up right now as he peels off his numbers to hand to youngsters in the crowd.

Peacock delivers again

Elizabeth Hudson

BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

It wasn't quite the tension that the T44 100m final had in London - and perhaps the crowd were more engrossed by the amputee high jump ongoing at the far end of the stadium - but it was the same outcome for Jonnie Peacock.

Peacock bossed the race from the start and after challenging briefly, baseball cap-clad American Jarryd Wallace faded badly

The Briton has always been proud of his record of delivering on the big stage - and he has just done it again.

Silver medallist Liam Malone (22) and German bronze medallist Felix Streng (21) can be proud of their performances too.

There's one gold postbox already in Jonnie Peacock's home village of Doddington, Cambridgeshire.

I'm not sure they have a second postbox - they might have to paint a phonebox. Or the village sign.

Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live

I've never seen him run like that. He was just so determined. Simply excellent from Jonnie! 

Jonnie Peacock celebrates

Gold medal - Jonnie Peacock

Men's T44 100m final

Jonnie Peacock has had them on all toast and he's even eaten the crusts.

It wasn't the greatest start from the Briton but my word, he blew them away after that.

The 23-year-old is a two-time T44 100m gold medallist and he's an absolute superstar.

Peacock finished in 10.81secs - New Zealand's Liam Malone takes silver in 11.02secs and USA's Jarryd Wallace takes bronze in 11.03secs.

Jonnie Peacock celebrates

Men's T44 100m final

They go down on the blocks. Silence in the Olympic Stadium.

Bang! Go!

Jonnie Peacock

Men's T44 100m final (23:58 BST)

Jonnie Peacock is just 23 remember. So young. He looks cool and calm.

Jarryd Wallace looks like he's going to run in shades and a cap. Interesting.

Liam Malone is introduced and he raises his arms in the air without cracking a smile. He's backing himself and some.

New Zealand's Liam Malone looks in confident mood.

Jonnie Peacock and Jarryd Wallace bump fists - camaraderie.

Some inspiration for Jonnie?

Rio Paralympics 2016: Georgie Hermitage wins 100m gold

Men's T44 100m final (23:58 BST)

Jonnie Peacock is a prize fighter. Or a prize Peacock, if you will.

He performs on the biggest of stages.

Give us a performance to remember, Jonnie.

Proud as a Peacock

Men's T44 100m final (23:58 BST)


London 2012 gold medallist, 2013 world champion and two-time European champion.

Jonnie Peacock is a superstar - not that he knows it.

At the age of five he lost his right leg to meningitis and following London 2012, when he stormed to gold in front of his home crowd, he was launched into celebrity status.

But Peacock is a quiet Cambridgeshire boy, who is happiest when he's out of the spotlight and only uses his platform to try and progress disability sport.

If he makes it double delight tonight though, he'll be a man in demand once more.

Bronze medal- Lewis White

Men's S9 400m freestyle

He had to look back at the clock before he realised what he has just done but 16 year-old Lewis White has just won a bronze medal at his first Paralympic Games. 

Australia's Brenden Hall claims gold with an impressive time of 4:12.73, five seconds ahead of the rest of the field. 

Italian Federico Mallachi follows in second touching the wall at 4:.17.91. 

But what a performance from young white as he shakes his head in disbelief but he'll be going to bed as a very happy boy tonight. 

'It's going to be a great race'

Men's T44 100m final (23:58 BST)

London 2012 T44 100m silver medallist Richard Browne talking to BBC Radio 5 live: "Looking at the times, Jonnie really had the best performance in the heats. But I'm going with my teammate Jarryd Wallace. It's going to be a really great race.

"Jonnie is the big-show kind of guy and he's the Paralympic champion for a reason. He doesn't have too much to worry about because he knows what he's got to do to win."

Paralympic Athletics

Men's T44 100m final (23:58 BST)


Can Jonnie Peacock retain his T44 100m title (23:58) or will American Jarryd Wallace claim glory? We asked some of the BBC Radio 5 Live athletics team for their views.

Ed Harry: Jarryd Wallace is going to win. He is the more consistent athlete out of him and Peacock. He told me in July ahead of the Anniversary Games where he beat Peacock – no mistake, one mistake, he still has what it takes to win that gold medal.

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson: This is a real head versus heart dilemma. Although Jonnie came to London as the world record holder four years ago, he was protected a bit, but now there is a different sort of pressure on him. We know he performs at big events but I think Wallace will do it. 

Allison Curbishley:  I think without doubt Jonnie Peacock is going to retain his title. He looked superb in the first round like a guy who has come here ready to run when it mattered. Jarryd Wallace has been talking a good game but I think New Zealand’s Liam Malone could be the surprise packet and could break the two.

Peaty's team mate White up next

Remember Adam Peaty when he won gold in Rio? 

Well, 15 year-old Lewis White has been in close waters with him in his hometown of Derby a they share the same coach, Mel Marshall. 

He's up next in the men's S9 400m freestyle

Jonnie Peacock's most likely rival for 100m T44 gold tonight is USA's Jarryd Wallace.

Peacock's personal best is three hundredths of a second better than Wallace's - but the American won out at the Anniversary Games earlier this year.

No Richard Browne through injury though - he's been a long-time nemesis of Peacock.

Hope's dance for GB


Meet Pollyanna Hope. She's 11 years old and when she was two she lost her right leg below the knee in a bus accident.

She's made a truly beautiful video, busting out some dance moves and wishing triathlete Andy Lewis, as well as other ParalypicsGB athletes, the best of luck in Rio.

You can watch the video here - which is in aid of Elizabeth's Legacy of Hope charity for amputees in Africa and India.

'It's affected me physically and emotionally'

T53 100m men's final

Mickey Bushell after coming sixth: "It's a tough Games. It's been a tough year and I got beaten, it's as simple as that. Everything is moving forward and I've had a bad few years. The standards are going up and up and yeah it's good to see. 

"It's affected me physically, mentally, emotionally and I think it's taking its toll on me now. We go back and train harder ready for the London 2017 World Championships."

Mickey's talking about the tough time he had in hospital where he almost died from an infection but he recovered in time to win gold at the European Championships in June this year- good effort Mick! 

T53 100m men's final

Brent Lakatos' wife Stef Reid, who won Paralympic silver in the long jump earlier today, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live's Jonathan Overend: "You have to realise that that gold medal was 20 years in the making. That was a phenomenal achievement by Brent. He's always had this theory that if you improve on one thing each year you eventually go on to great things."

World record


A few world records, to be precise. They're dropping like heavy, heavy beats.

Here's the latest records to be laid down tonight:

Aurelie Rivard (Canada) Women's 50m freestyle swimming - S10 -  27.37secs

Omara Durand (Cuba) Women's 100m - T12 11.40secs (pictured)

Dmytro Zalevskyi (Ukraine) - Men's 100m backstroke - S11 - 1min 6.66secs

Akeem Stewart (Trinidad & Tobago) Men's javelin throw - F43 - 57.32m

Mary Fisher - Women's 100m backstroke - S11 - 1min 17.96secs

The pair have been working hard since February on their synchronicity - a key element of guide running and developing their communication on the track.

They also had to overcome Clegg's reclassification earlier this summer with her degenerative eye condition Stargardt's Disease deteriorating to the extent that she has now moved into the T11 category for blind athletes and has to wear a blindfold while competing.

But all the struggles have been worthwhile.

Elizabeth Hudson

BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

Clegg said earlier this year that to have any chance of a medal in Rio she needed an elite-level international athlete as a guide.

Clarke, 25, reached the semi-finals of the 200m at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and ran for GB at the 2012 European Championships - but missed out on a place at London 2012.

"Libby approached me and said she needed a new guide. I like a challenge and it is something new and exciting," he said.

"Being attached to someone when you are running took a bit to get used to."

Clegg and Clarke's road to success

Elizabeth Hudson

BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

How much has guide Chris Clarke help revitalise Libby Clegg's running career?

Clegg had worked with Mikail Huggins for a number of years with the pair winning Commonwealth gold in Glasgow and Paralympic silver in London.

But their partnership came to an end late last year with Clegg saying she needed a fresh start and they hadn't improved their PB since 2012.

Clarke, himself a talented able-bodied runner, linked up with Clegg in February this year and the partnership has yielded the highest honour of all.

T53 100m men's final

Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live

From 20 metres in you could see Lakatos was pulling away. He knew exactly where the finish line was and the first thing he did was check if he broke the world record. It's difficult to see how anyone else will beat him because of his speed.

Gold medal- Brent Lakatos (Canada)

T53 100m men's final

Canada's Brent Lakatos pumps his fist and screams 'Yes!' as he wins the men's T53 100m sprint in a fast time of 14.44 seconds. 

I'm sure his wife, Britain's Stef Reid, will be delighted they can both celebrate tonight as she won silver earlier today in the women's F44 long jump. 

But you have to feel for Britain's Mickey Bushell. He was on top of the world four years ago when he won this event, but injury and illness halted his progress and his tiredness is shown here as he finishes in sixth. 

And a speedy teenager from Thailand will be delighted as Paeyo Pongsakorn takes silver ahead of China's Li Huzhao. 

Brent Lakatos of Canada celebrates

Tatyana McFadden on Channel 4: "I am so pleased because in London I got bronze and I finished really strong to get silver. I'm so happy.

"I've caught a bit of a cold so I'm trying to take my time to relax because I got medal one today but there's six more to go now."

Tatyana McFadden

Gold medal - Liu Wenjun

Women's T54 100m final

It's a medal for American Tatyana McFadden, but it will be made of silver.

China's Liu Wenjun is the quickest away and she holds on to the lead to take gold.

McFadden comes back super strong but runs out of track - this is her weakest event out of seven so it bodes well.

Li Yingjie of China takes bronze.
