Paralympics Today - Sunday 29th August 2021

It's Day 5 in Tokyo - otherwise known as Super Sunday because 64 medal events are being contested across the Paralympics campus during the day, including judo action from Nippon Budokan. At the time of writing, ParalympicsGB is sending four judoka to Japan, each in separate weight divisions - former European Champion Chris Skelley (-100kg); Elliot Stewart (-90kg), Jack Hodgson (+100kg) and Daniel Powell (-81kg).

Join Steph McGovern and Arthur Williams live as they present coverage from Day 5 of the Tokyo Paralympics and round up the overnight action, including 2019 world champion Louise Fiddes going in the SB14 100m breaststroke.

Clare Balding presents further live coverage from Super Sunday at the Tokyo Paralympics, including Chris Skelley looking to medal in the -100kg category in the judo. At the Tokyo Aquatics Centre, Ellie Challis hunts for a medal in the S3 50m Backstroke. Back on the athletics track, Sammi Kinghorn will be hoping to compete in the T53 800m final.

Live coverage of Super Sunday, more boringly known as Day 5, concludes. Potential GB medal hopes include Nathan Maguire and Richard Chiassaro, who are hoping to compete in the T54 400m final. And Jonnie Peacock gets his Paralympics campaign underway in the T64 100m heats.
