  1. Thanks and goodbye

    And that is everything for day three of the 2016 Paralympics. More gold, more silver, more bronze, more drama and more tears.

    I would say that's been a good night all round.

    We will be back tomorrow with another 54 gold medals up for grabs.

    The British competitors in action include Jody Cundy, Richard Whitehead, Bethany Firth, Jessica-Jane Applegate. It is going to be good. Thanks for your company and good night.

    Will Bayley also booked a spot in the class 7 semi finals with a straight sets win over Egypt's Sayed Yousseff. 

    Aaron McKibbin goes in the class 8 quarters at 00:30 BST if you fancy staying up for it?

    Women's T46 100m heats

    More good news for ParalympicsGB over at the athletics stadium as Polly Maton is the third fastest qualifier in the women's T46 100m heats. 

    Paton crossed the line second in a time of 12.98 seconds behind Poland's Ailicja Fiodorow, who stopped the clock at 12.43. 

    The 16 year-old will line-up in tomorrow's final at 22:56 BST

    These ParalympicsGB youngsters are good aren't they?

  5. Paralympic Athletics

    Men's 200m T42 heats

    This was some performance.

    Watch the action as Richard Whitehead comfortably wins his men's 200m T42 heat, setting a new Paralympic record in the process.

  6. 'A dream come true'

    Women's 10,000m backstroke

    GB's Alice Tai, who won bronze in the women's S10 100m backstroke, has been speaking to Channel 4.

    She said: "I didn't expect to qualify at the start of the year, so it's crazy to win a bronze.

    "It's insane - I look up to (race winner) Sophie Pascoe and the others so much, so to be on the podium with her later is a dream come true.

    "I'm rooming with Ellie Robinson and she came back yesterday with the medal and the whole apartment was celebrating."

  7. The lighter side of Rio

    Darko Duric

    Ian Williams, reporting in the Aquatics Centre: "Andrew Mullen won't be smiling after finishing fourth in the men's 50m butterfly S5 but there was a lighter moment before the start of the race.

    "With pretty much all the competitors on their blocks, an official had to run across to Slovakia's Darko Duric to remind him that he still had his headphones on top of his cap.

    "It brought a laugh out of the crowd, and a round of applause. Duric took it in good heart while I saw several of the other swimmers chuckling.

    "Are you supposed to laugh just seconds before a Paralympic final? And what was he listening to? Must have been good."

  8. Bronze medal- Alice Tai (GB)

    Women's S10 100m backstroke

    A strong start from the young teenager Tai as she was second at the turn but fell back to third at the finish. Still a good effort!

    Tai, who's still only young at 17, couldn't quite keep up with the New Zealand favourite Sophie Pascoe who takes gold.

    Hungary's Pap Bianka stormed past Tai with 25m to go to take silver but Tai looks very happy to be going home with at least one medal. 

    She'll try to upgrade from that colour on Monday when she lines up for the S10 100m butterfly. 

    Sophie Pascoe of New Zealand
  9. World record- Maksym Krypak (UKR)

    Men's S10 100m backstroke

    Wow! What a swim from one of Ukraine's best as he lowers the current world record by at least a second in 57.24 seconds. 

    He'll be happy with that. What a swim!

  10. London 2012 torchbearer Tai aiming for a medal

    S10 100m backstroke final (23:31 BST)

    Just over a year ago Alice Tai was getting her GCSE results, tonight she is aiming for a medal in the women's S10 100m backstroke final.

    Now 17, Tai won a bronze medal in the event at last year's IPC World Championships and added another in the 4x100m freestyle relay.

    Born with bilateral talipes - club foot - she has had 14 operations to help her walk but has no movement in her ankles.

    Tai was selected to be a torchbearer before the London 2012 Olympics.

  11. Boccia

    GB lead Japan 2-0 in mixed pairs

    Things have gone well for ParalympicsGB in the Boccia tournaments today. 

    They've already won three out of five events and look set for a fourth victory in the BC1-2 mixed pairs category as they lead Japan by 2-0 after two ends with two more rounds to go. 

    If you're not aware of the basics of Boccia, here's some key facts below. 

  12. Storey 'over the moon' with time

    Women's C4-5 500m time trial

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Dame Sarah Storey missed out on another Paralympic medal, finishing fourth in the women's C4-5 500m time trial.

    She tells BBC Radio 5 live: "I'm not disappointed at all. I fully expected what has happened. I won in London because the sprinters didn't run their 'A' game. I was on my best time. I'm over the moon with my time. It's absolutely brilliant.

    "It's incredible from Kadeena. She fully deserved it."

    Storey finished fourth after Kadeena Cox broke the world record for gold.

  13. Sixth place for Yule

    Men's -65 kg Group A

    Micky Yule

    Great Britain's Micky Yule, 37, finishes outside the medal spots in sixth.

    He lifted 180kg in his first attempt, which ended up as his best effort. Yule was competing in Group A, and with Group B cancelled, this effectively became the medal contest.

    Nigeria's Paul Kehinde claimed the top prize, though, breaking world and paralympic records with a lift of 220kg. China's Hu Peng took silver, with Egypt's Shaaban Ibrahim bronze.

  14. Family joy and pain

    Elizabeth Hudson

    BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

    There is agony and ecstasy as a family member supporting a Paralympian in Rio - just ask the Rolfe family.

    Son Louis won a surprise, according to them, bronze in Friday's C2 individual pursuit event and went again in Saturday's C1-2-3 kilo, eventually finishing sixth but setting a new personal best on the way.

    The family party of mum and dad Lynsey and Mark, sister Holly, grandma Sue, great aunt Jan and Mark's mate (as it says on the t-shirt) John were all at the velodrome to cheer on the 19-year-old, who has cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus, and he gave them a cheeky thumbs-up after the race. 

    The Rolfe family

    "I'm always nervous but I'm also so proud of what he has overcome to get here," Lynsey told me. "We always encouraged him to do sport but London 2012 was a real catalyst for him and he has shown such commitment.

    "As a family we are humbled and thrilled to be here."

    Sunday will be another big day for the Rolfe family with Louis part of the team sprint team along with Jody Cundy and Jon-Allan Butterworth.

  15. Kadeena gets her medal

    Kadeena Cox wins gold in women's C4-5 500m time trial

    It is a tearful occasion for Kadeena as well, wiping away tears as the national anthem is played and the flag is raised.

  17. Cockroft was 'certain' of gold

    Women's T34 100m final

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Great Britain's Hannah Cockroft won the women's T34 100m final earlier and she has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live.

    She says: "The 100m is my favourite event, my strongest. I was pretty dead certain. I'm a little upset with the time.

    "I was going for the world record all season. I was a tenth of a second away from it! But I came for the gold, and I've got the gold - I'm happy."  

    And here is the clip of Hannah Cockroft's winning performance in all its glory. Sit back and enjoy it. It is pretty special.

  18. Mickey Bushell fails to qualify

    Men's T53 400m heats

    Mickey Bushell looks tired and disappointed as he misses out on the chance to compete for a medal in the T53 400m heats. 

    A lacklustre start followed by a laboured finish sees the Telford man finish fifth in 54.02 seconds. 

    But what a Paralympic debut Thailand's Paeyo Pongsakorn is having at the age of 19. 

    A silver medal in the 100m yesterday and now he's the fastest qualifier in the 400m with a new PB of 48.38 seconds. 

  19. Cox to spark a culture change for black cyclists?

    Kadeena Cox wins women's C4-5 500m time trial gold

    Nick Hope

    BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

    I really think Kadeena Cox's success could start a seismic shift in Paralympic as well as Olympic cycling and encourage more black athletes to try the sport.

    Given the obvious sprint power many black athletes are able to generate in track and field events I know there are many in cycling who feel it would be a natural shift.

    To date I think it's been a cultural problem - much like we've seen traditionally in swimming which is dominated by white athletes.

    However, that has begun to change in recent Games and in particular the Rio Olympics where USA's Simone Manuel became the first black African American woman to win an individual Olympic swimming gold.

    Will cycling be the next sport to benefit from a change in views and attitudes towards old 'traditions' in sport?
