A social media star as well as a track star, 22-year-old Hunter Woodhall looks to earn his first medal of the Tokyo Paralympics when he competes in the men's 400m T62 final (6:33 a.m. ET). Woodhall's resume is stacked: He's a two-time Paralympic medalist and the first double amputee to earn an NCAA Division I track scholarship. He also has 2.7 million followers on TikTok and is one half of a track & field power couple along with his girlfriend, Olympic long jumper Tara Davis. At the Rio 2016 Games, Woodhall won silver in the 200m and bronze in the 400m.
In total there will be 17 medal events held for track & field on Day 10—eight in the first session and nine in the second session.

The night will begin with Niels Vink of the Netherlands taking on Japan's Koji Sugeno in the men's quad singles bronze medal match at 9 p.m. ET.

Ending the night for the men will be men's doubles gold medal match between Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid of Great Britain and France's Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer.

Team USA has had quite the performance in the goalball tournament in Tokyo. After a dramatic come-from-behind victory over Brazil to earn a trip to the gold medal game, the U.S. women will take on Turkey early Friday morning to win their first goalball title since 2008. Turkey will be no easy test, though, as they'll be looking to defend their title from Rio.
The U.S. men, meanwhile, will face off against Lithuania for the bronze medal just before the women's gold medal match. The U.S men lost to Lithuania in the gold medal match in Rio, and they'll certainly be hoping to get revenge this time around.

On the final night of swimming events in Tokyo, many of Team USA's biggest stars will have one last opportunity to add to their medal collections before leaving Tokyo:
- Elizabeth Marks, who a silver and a bronze so far in Tokyo, races the women's 100m backstroke S6 (4:23 a.m. ET). The U.S. Army sergeant won a backstroke gold at the 2019 World Championships.
- Jessica Long, who has five medals at these Paralympics and 28 for her career, swims the women's 100m butterfly S8 (4:37 a.m. ET). She won gold in this race in 2008 and 2012.
- McKenzie Coan, Mallory Weggemann and Julia Gaffney will all try to advance to the women's 50m butterfly S7 final (5:04 a.m. ET). All three swimmers have earned two medals apiece thus far, with both of Weggemann's medals being gold.
- Anastasia Pagonis, who became one of the Tokyo Paralympics' breakout stars after she won a gold medal last week, can earn her third medal of the Games. If she advances out of her qualifying heat, she'll race the women's 100m freestyle S11 final (5:59 a.m. ET). Pagonis has amassed a large following on TikTok and uses the platform to educate others about being blind and to destigmatize disability.

|Semifinal: Japan vs Great Britain (M)||7:45 a.m. ET||Live Stream|
The U.S. men's wheelchair basketball team took down Turkey in the quarterfinals and earned themselves a date with Spain Friday morning to decide who will head to the gold medal game. Japan and Great Britain will face off just after Team USA's contest to decide the other title contender.
Team USA's men's team won the wheelchair basketball gold medal in Rio, but hasn't won consecutive titles since going back-to-back in 1972 and 1976. With a win over Spain, they'll have a chance to break that trend.
|Semifinal: USA vs Brazil (W)||5:30 a.m. ET||Live Stream|
|Semifinal: China vs Canada (W)||7:30 a.m. ET||Live Stream|
The U.S. women's sitting volleyball team will open the knockout stage with a semifinal match against Brazil. The two teams also faced each other in the semifinals at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. Team USA swept Brazil in straight sets during that match, then went on to win the gold medal. The Brazilians ended up leaving their home Paralympics with a bronze medal that year.
In the other semifinal, China takes on Canada. China won three straight gold medals from 2004 through 2012 but were dethroned by the Americans in 2016. Should the United States and China advance to this year's final, it will be the fourth consecutive Paralympics they've played each other for the gold medal.
