LEE PEARSON, EQUESTRIAN
Winner of nine Paralympic golds, Great Britain's Lee Pearson will be hoping for more, and competes in the IB Grade mixed individual freestyle Championship Test, beginning at Greenwich Park at 14.15. A gold in this event, which sees the riders perform to a musical backing track, will take Pearson past Dave Roberts and Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson as the all-time top British Paralympic gold medallist.
SASCHA KINDRED, SWIMMING
Kindred, winner of six Paralympic golds, has not lost in the SM6 200m individual medley in a major championship for an incredible 14 years. He'll face stiff competition from European gold medallist Yevheniy Bohodayko and Beijing bronze medallist Xu Qing of China, starting with the heats at the Aquatics Centre at 09.30 and finishing with the final at 17.30.
MICKEY BUSHELL, ATHLETICS
After silver in the T53 100m in Beijing, the man nicknamed "The Bush" will hope to go one better in his home country. Holder of the world-record at this level and British records in T53 200, 400 and 800 metres, the 22-year-old from Telford will be challenged by Brazilian Ariosvaldo Fernandes Silva, with heats at 10.15 and final at 19.20 in the Olympic Stadium.
JAMES ANDERSON, SWIMMING
The six-time gold medallist from Scotland did not win gold in Beijing, but looks to make the most of London appearance today by competing in the 100m S2 freestyle. The preliminaries begin at 10.21, with the final at 18.03, as Anderson competes against main heat rival Aristeidis Makrodimitris from Greece. Russian Dmitrii Kokarev will provide stiff competition if he reaches the final.
