The Tokyo Games are winding down as the Paralympics reaches its penultimate day. Medal matches are set to be held in a number of team sports, with the United States playing for women's wheelchair basketball bronze in one of those matches. Meanwhile, a stacked day of track & field will see a total of 23 medal events as U.S. star Nick Mayhugh goes for a world record and a third gold medal.

Friday was a day to remember for Nick Mayhugh. Not only did he help the United States win gold in the Paralympics' first-ever 4x100m universal relay, he also set a world record (22.26 seconds) in his 200m T37 preliminary heat. After his record-setting run, Mayhugh, who has cerebral palsy, predicted that he'll be going even faster during the final. Needless to say, that will make the men's 200m T37 final (9:27 p.m. ET) a must-see event as he goes for his third gold medal (and fourth medal overall) of the Tokyo Games. That will be one of 10 medal events going down in the first session of the day.
The second session is absolutely stacked with another 13 medal events. One notable event is the men's 200m T64 final (7:15 a.m. ET), which could feature as many as three U.S. athletes, provided they all advance out of the preliminary round. Americans Jarryd Wallace and Jonathan Gore are ranked No. 1 and 2 in the world in this event, and compatriot Trenten Merrill already has a bronze medal from the long jump.

Three gold medals will be awarded on the final day of wheelchair tennis. The day's action will start with the gold medal match in quad singles, then will continue into the bronze and gold medal matches for women's double, and the bronze and gold medal matches for men's singles. In the three finals:
- Sam Schroder of the Netherlands can win his second gold medal of the Tokyo Paralympics when he plays Australia's Dylan Alcott in the quad singles final. Schroder won gold in the quad doubles tournament earlier this week. Alcott, who won a gold medal as a wheelchair basketball player in 2008, is ranked No. 1 in the world and is the defending Paralympic champion.
- The women's double gold medal match will feature two of the medalists from the women's singles event. Gold medalist Diede de Groot is teamed up with Aniek van Koot for the Netherlands, and they'll play against bronze medalist Jordanne Whiley and teammate Lucy Shuker of Great Britain.
- The Netherlands' Tom Egberink plays Japan's Shingo Kunieda in the gold medal match for men's singles. Both players took part in yesterday's men's doubles bronze medal match, with Egerbink's side defeating Kunieda and his teammate.

Soccer 5-a-side is a sport for athletes with vision impairments. Teams consist of four outfield players, all of whom are fully blind or nearly blind, and one goalkeeper, who can be a sighted and able-bodied athlete. The ball contains a special noise-making device which allows players to locate it, and guides, goalkeepers and coaches are all allowed to shout verbal cues to the outfield players. Such cues can help players find and exploit spaces on the field of play.
China plays Morocco in the bronze medal game, then traditional South American soccer powers Argentina and Brazil take the pitch to play for the gold medal. Since soccer 5-a-side debuted at the 2004 Paralympics, Brazil has won every gold medal. Led by Jefinho, known as the "Paralympic Pele," the Brazilians will look to win their fifth straight Paralympic title.

Three medal matches are on tap for Day 11, with the women's gold medal match (United States vs. China) still to come one day later as the finale.
Iran has won gold in men's sitting volleyball at six of the last eight Paralympics and can add to that collection with a win over the RPC in the final.

|Women's Gold: Netherlands vs China||7:30 a.m. ET||Live Stream|
At the Rio 2016 Paralympics, the United States and Germany played in the gold medal game of women's wheelchair basketball. This year the two teams, which have combed to win the last four Paralympic titles, find themselves in a different position—playing in the bronze medal game. After being held to 36 points, their lowest output of the tournament, in the semifinals, Rose Hollermann and the rest of Team USA will now try to bounce back and secure a medal.
The Netherlands and China face each other for the gold medal later on. China is undefeated in Tokyo and beat the Netherlands 45-38 when the teams met in the group stage.
