Sport by Sport round-up
Athletics: Bronze for Hazel Simpson and silvers for Mickey Bushell and Shelly Woods were just the precursor to David Weir’s glorious 1500m gold in another incident packed wheelchair final. Ian Jones added another bronze to round off a great night in the Nest.
Basketball: The men retained their bronze medal with a convincing display against USA. The 85-77 victory was described as “fabulous, fabulous” by team coach Sinclair Thomas, a fitting send-off for former captain Andy Blake.
Football: Britain’s seven-a-side team finished on a high with a 10-2 victory against China to leave them seventh in the Beijing tournament and vowing to improve for 2012.
Rugby: Bronze proved a step too far for Britain’s rugby players as they came up against the powerful Canadians, losing 47-41 to miss out on GB’s first ever Paralympic medal by slender margin.
