Australia now 6th in medal tally equal on 31 Golds with US but behind on overall. (Australia 31 golds, 23 Silver, 29 Bronze)

The Men's basketball final was one of the best games you could see but unfortunately Canada got over Australia.

I think the tone of the Paralympics was set by the Final athlete in the Mens 400 metres real;y where he rated the Bronze greater than his individual Gold. He said this team medal was more important.

Set Alarm clocks for 11:15pm tonight for another Australia v Canada match this time the Final of the Wheel Chair Rugby.  The Canadians upset the US in the semi final.  Great watching.

Also Men's marathon tonight

I watched the second half of the Men's Wheelchair Basketball. It was definitely one of the most intense things I've seen. Didn't actually realise how brutal it can be.

It's a real shame that the Paralympics/Paralympians don't get as much coverage and respect as they deserve. Truly inspirational.

If you doubt Paralympics can be exciting watch the finish of this race.  Sound not the best but perservere and watch the finish which is replayed.  Do not think there was anything to match this finish in the Olympics.

yeh jus saw it on the ABC coverage, wow what a finish, well done girls

And Grant "Scooter" Pattison won the Cross discipline heavy weight title Table Tennis bout for the championship of block D Room 72 against Ahmed Kelly 4. Both competitors came away with copies of "Agony Uncles"

Matt Cowdrey was the referee, called by Darren "Boydy" Boyd, with Jayme Paris keeping a keen eye on the bout.

I also watched it live but could only find this clip at the moment to share.  The sad thing about this is if this was at the Ordinary Olympics this finish at the end of a 4x100m relay would have been headline news but sadly very little coverage of it.
Great effort to come 4th overall.
Yea enjoyed this Very impressed with ABC coverage (especially on the couch) when compared to the real olympics coverage.  just a pity no camera coverage on the marathon course.
