A Paralympic veteran at 29 years old, Jessica Long is set to compete at her fifth Games. She's won 13 gold medals and 23 medals overall in her career so far, making her one of Team USA's most accomplished Paralympians ever. Long, whose adoption story was the subject of a Super Bowl commercial earlier this year, will compete on this day in the women's S8 100m backstroke, her first of five medal opportunities at these Paralympics.

After setting a world record and winning gold in her Paralympic debut yesterday, teenage sensation Anastasia Pagonis has a chance to add to her collection when she races in the women's S11 50m freestyle.

Day 3 will feature a total of 14 medal races in swimming.

Following a dramatic comeback win over Germany yesterday, the U.S. men play Iran in their second game of the wheelchair basketball preliminary round. Brian Bell scored a game-high 20 points in the opener and helped give Team USA the lead late in the game.

Wheelchair Rugby

Event Time Link
Denmark vs France 10:30 p.m. ET Live Stream
Australia vs Japan 1:00 a.m. ET Live Stream
USA vs Great Britain 4:30 a.m. ET Live Stream
New Zealand vs Canada 7:00 a.m. ET Live Stream

Wheelchair rugby's preliminary round wraps up with the third set of matches for each team. Group B's two unbeaten teams, the United States and Great Britain, will go head-to-head in one of those matches. Both squads are already assured of a sport in the semifinal round, but the winner will finish as the top team in the group, which would theoretically give them a more favorable matchup in the semifinals.

In Group A, three teams are still competing for the two semifinal spots: Japan, Australia and Denmark. Japan currently sits atop the group at 2-0, while Australia and Demark are both a game back at 1-1. A showdown between Australia, the two-time defending Paralympic gold medalists, and Japan, the reigning world champions, could prove to be the day's most important match.

Track & Field

Event Time Link
Session 1 8:30 p.m. ET Live Stream
Session 2 6:00 a.m. ET Live Stream

Track & field gets underway with a big slate of events. The day's action will be broken into two sessions, with the first session (8:30 p.m. ET) featuring six medal events and the second session (6 a.m. ET) featuring eight medal events. Both sessions will also include preliminary heats for various track races.

For fans of Team USA, the second session will be of particular interest. The men's long jump T11 final (6:05 a.m. ET) features American star Lex Gillette. Although Gillette is the current world-record holder and has won silver in this event at each of the past four Paralympic Games, he's still in search of his first gold medal.

Over on the track, American Nick Mayhugh will be one of the favorites in the men's 100m T37 final (6:25 a.m. ET) after he set the world record in June. Jaleen Roberts in the women's 200m T37 final (6:16 a.m. ET) and Raymond Martin in the men's 400m T52 final (7:16 a.m. ET) are among the other Americans to watch in the second session.
