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
|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.
