As the 2016 Paralympic Games begin, GB could immediately win their first medal in the velodrome as Dame Sarah Storey goes in the C5 Individual Pursuit final, while Megan Giglia competes in the C1-3 Individual Pursuit with both targeting a podium finish.

Shortly afterwards in the pool, Ollie Hynd and Josef Craig could bring further joy for ParalympicsGB in the S8 400m, with Harriet Lee also going in the SB9 100m breaststroke followed by Bethany Firth and Jessica-Jane Applegate in the S14 100m backstroke.

On the track, Sammi Kinghorn will be aiming to be quick out of the blocks in the women's T53 100m, whilst swimmers Andrew Mullen and Jonathan Fox will be on screen in the early hours of the morning in the water, hoping for triumph in the S5 200m freestyle and S7 100m backstroke respectively.


Which other Brits are in action?

It's an action-packed opening day for ParalympicsGB with athletes going in heats and qualifying stages of their respective events. Athletics stars Jonnie Peacock and Georgina Hermitage will get their Games under way, while the 7-a-side football and basketball teams will also be beginning their respective campaigns.

In December 2015, table tennis player Rob Davies regained the number one spot in the men's class 1, and he'll be involved in group games with teammate Paul Davies also competing.

Rest of the world

Marc Evers will be one to keep an eye when he faces Briton Aaron Moores. The Dutch swimmer is a firm favourite in Holland after becoming the first athlete with an intellectual impairment to win a Paralympic gold medal for 12 years when he was triumphant in London.

Another swimmer, Ihar Boki, is Belarus' most successful Paralympian and he will be heading to Brazil full of confidence and hoping to build on his incredible feats four years ago, when he collected five golds and a silver medal in the Games.

Staying in the pool, South African Kevin Paul is in fine fettle after smashing the 200m breaststroke world record in the heats at the national trials, meaning he became the first South African Para-swimmer to make the able-bodied finals at nationals, even though the race is not on the Paralympic programme.


Did you know?

Dame Sarah Storey is the most decorated British female Paralympian with 22 medals. Coming into Rio aged 38, could it be her final bow? She's competing in four events in Brazil and being the high achiever that she is, a podium finish in all four can't be discounted.

You could say that Storey has a familiar first chapter if she caps off the first day with a medal after doing so in London four years ago. Back then, it begun a brilliant evening with swimmer Jonathan Fox also claiming gold in the backstroke.



Day 2 - Friday, 9 September

Gold medal sports - six in total: Athletics, cycling track, judo, powerlifting, shooting, swimming


Highlights

Jonnie Peacock is the headline athlete on the track in the T44 100m, with plenty tipping him to defend his Paralympic title after his main rival, Richard Browne, retired from racing only a few months before the Games. However, there's a new rival in town - Jarryd Wallace 

Peacock will follow Georgina HermitageSophie Hahn and Olivia Breen earlier in the evening, who will all be targeting medals. Wisbech-born cyclist Jody Cundy will be in the veledome with Jon-Allan Butterworth hoping to create headlines in the C4/5 Kilo race while powerlifter Ali Jawad goes in the 59kg section. Jawad's hard work in the gym has been paying off - the Londoner has bagged golds in the World and European Championships in the last two years.


Which other Brits are in action?

There's a sporting feast for ParalympicsGB with podium places at stake - Sophie Thornhill and Helen Scott go in the B Kilo cycling with Zoe Newson competing in the 45kg powerlifting. Canadian-born Brit Stef Reid, who is part of Channel 4's presenting team in Rio after competing, will be jumping for joy after she's finished with her long jump final. Meanwhile, Mo Jomni will be hoping to replicate mentor David Weir's marvellous big stage performances when he goes in the T53 100m heats.

Rest of the world

Jason Smyth, the fastest Paralympian on the planet, will be a stiff opponent for Briton Zachary Shaw in the T13 100m in the afternoon athletics session. Irishman Smyth is the current Paralympic, world and European champion and he won't be relinquishing his crown any time soon.

Jessica Long was USA Swimming's Disability Swimmer of the Year in 2015 and, with five golds, two silvers and a bronze medal three years in London, superiority will once again be on her mind. Shortly after 1500 BST she comes up against British duo Steph Slater and Steph Millward, who will have to be at their very best to edge Long.

Terezinha Guillhermina will be one of the stars of the show for the home crowd on the track. The Brazilian won two golds in the 2012 Games and even had nine-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt as her guide runner in an event last year. Although she's not not having the best preparation for Rio after being pipped to the post in the World Campionships in Doha last year, she will still be a major threat.

Christchurch-born New Zealand swimmer Sophie Pascoe has 10 Paralympic medals to her name and adding to that collection will be on the agenda when she faces Britain's Alice Tai and Harriet Lee in the S10 50m free. 


Did you know?

Graeme Ballard will be in the T36 100m heats in the afternoon and he boasts an interesting fact relating to his previous glory. When he was born, he weighed exactly the same as his London 2012... only 980g. Also, rider Sophie Thornhill has already quashed the doubters by continuing to do well in her sport, as she was told as a youngster that she would never be able to be a cyclist. 



Day 3 - Saturday, 10 September

Gold medal sports - seven in total : Athletics, cycling track, judo, powerlifting, shooting, swimming, triathlon


Highlights

More medal potential on the cards for the British team with finals aplenty taking place, and shooting star Matt Skelhon will be ready for the task ahead in the R3 mixed 10m air rifle event. Will wheelchair racer Hannah Cockroft be smiling at the end of the T34 100m? The London 2012 double gold medallist, who will be racing for three titles in Rio, be joined by fellow Brits Carly Tait and Kare Adenegan, before Daniel Bramall and Toby Gold compete in the T33 100m.

The last GB athlete to win golds in two sports at a single Paralympic Games was Isabel Newstead in 1988 but Kadeena Cox could be next and she lines up in the cycling C4/5 500m VC alongside Paralympic royalty, Sarah Storey.


Which other Brits are in action?

Para-triathlete Ryan Taylor is also seeking glory, while Scottish powerlifter and former solider Micky Yule (below) will be in action in the -65kg division - four years ago, he watched London's Closing Ceremony from his hospital bed.

Defending champion Richard Whitehead and ex-GB Invictus Games captain Dave Henson feature in the T42 200m heats, while GB's wheelchair basketballers take on hosts Brazil, likely to feature a very partisan home crowd.

Rest of the world

Norway's Sarah Louise Rung is known for being lightning quick in the pool, picking up four medals at London 2012. With more experience under her belt, she will be primed for the big occasion at the age of 26.

Blind American Bradley Snyder is a Navy war veteran, and now he's a swimmer seeking gold. Experienced at 32-years-old and accustomed to being the best with three Paralympic medals four years ago. His philosophy in life is 'nothing comes easily', and aptly named swimmer Andre Brasil has worked hard for his rewards ahead of the Games. He's heavily backed to be a victor once again on his home turf. 


Did you know?

With medals being awarded left, right and centre, one country you won't see at the top of the podium is Russia, banned from the Games because of its "inability to fulfil its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations, in particular its obligation to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code".

Grafting for four years to be in top shape your event takes serious dedication, but can you imagine the graft to compete in two? The person to ask is cyclist and sprinter Kadeena Cox, who is bidding to become the first person since 1988 to win medals in two sports for ParalympicsGB at a Games, following in the footsteps of Isabel Newstead (shooting and athletics in Seoul 1988).



Day 4 - Sunday, 11 September

Gold medal sports - seven in total: Archery, athletics, track cycling, powerlifting, rowing, shooting, swimming, table tennis, triathlon


Highlights

Nottingham's Richard Whitehead leads the GB charge, with more potential medal-winning displays expected from the rowing and triathlon teams. Neil Fachie and Peter Mitchell go in the cycling while Jo Butterfield lines up in the F51 club throw around the same time as Claire Cashmore dives into the swimming pool.


Which other Brits are in action?

As well as Cashmore, swimming firm favourites Ollie Hynd and Josef Craig will be defending their Paralympic titles, while wheelchair tennis players Gordon ReidAlfie HewittJordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker all begin their campaigns. Jessica-Jane ApplegateBethany Firth and Thomas Hamer all represent GB in the pool too, with archery and boccia also taking centre stage for the evening session.

Rest of the world

Just over a year ago, South African Ilse Hayes became the world's fastest female Para-athlete after clocking 11.89 seconds in the T13 100m at the IPC Athletics Grand Prix, and she'll be wanting to smash her own record. With multiple medals in her collection, American Tatyana McFadden will be aiming high in her events across many different distances, but she'll be focusing on the T54 400m on Day 4 and she's the clear favourite going into it. After silver and bronze in London, Aussie Angie Ballard will have to be at her maximum potential to win the coveted first gold at a Paralympics. She will be up against Brit Sammi Kinghorn in the T53 400m and it's expected to be an exciting race with both having top-three ambitions.


Did you know?

Dave Henson is involved in the heats of the T42 200m, but few people know just how brainy he is. After returning from Rio, Henson will continue his PhD studying Amputee Biomechanics - the former British serviceman lost both of his legs while in Afghanistan. Jordanne Whiley might be pretty good on the court, but get her in front of a microphone and her vocal class shines through. The recent Wimbledon champion is also a singer in her spare time, and has just released a track on iTunes. Could her future lyrics be inspired by more silverware?



Day 5 - Monday, 12 September

Gold medal sports - eight in total: Archery, athletics, boccia, powerlifting, shooting, swimming, table tennis, wheelchair fencing


Highlights

Swimmer Ellie Simmonds and shot putter Aled Davies are the leading names on a busy day for ParalympicsGB, with David Weir and Richard Chiassaro chasing a one-two in the T54 400m early in the afternoon. In the table tennis, Sue Gilroy and Will Bayley could get a medal each, whilst the Joao Havelange sStadium sees Sam Ruddock and Jonathan Broom-Edwards go for golds in the F35 shot put and T44 high jump respectively.


Which other Brits are in action?

Britain's Boccia team might be stealing the late night limelight when they begin their team event, but before that veteran swimmer Sascha Kindred goes in the SM6 200m in his quest to add a seventh Paralympic title. Georgina Hermitage was imperious in the IPC Athletics European Championships in Grosseto earlier this year and, with a photo of her daughter Tilly on her vest that she wears for good luck, she'll be in the T37 400m heats.

Gordon Reid and Jordanne Whiley continue their campaigns as they look to progress in the competition, and there's football action for GB as they face a fierce group game battle with rivals Ireland for bragging rights.

Rest of the world

There's a feast of football and basketball in Rio and there are some intriguing clashes taking place in both sports. Ukraine must overcome a vociferous crowd when they challenge Brazil, part of the night schedule. On the basketball court, Canada's women have a tough test against Brazil while the hosts' men's side take on Germany in the early hours of the morning.


Did you know?

Abby Kane is one of the fresh faces on the British swimming scene and, at just 13-years of age, is the same age as Ellie Simmonds when she made her Paralympic bow at Beijing 2008. There's a youthful look to the ParalympicsGB swimming squad with 18-year-old Amy Marren also raring to go in the pool. Could it be deja vu? On day five of the London Paralympics, Simmonds won the 200m individual medley and smashed the world record in the process. Same again four years later?



Day 6 - Tuesday, 13 September

Gold medal sports - nine in total: Archery, athletics, equestrian, powerlifting, shooting, swimming, table tennis, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair tennis


Highlights

The incredible David Weir will be setting off for three-and-three-quarter laps around the track at 2221 BST and who would bet against him winning? The defending champion will have to contend with rival Marcel Hug, the current world champion. A duel to saviour. Ollie Hynd will be going for gold in the pool, as will Steph SlaterSteph Millward and Matt Wylie just before midnight. Furthermore, Georgina Hermitage and Hollie Arnold in the athletics with table tennis action also being one of the primetime events as well in the afternoon.

Stephen Miller's strength will be tested in the F32 club throw competition, while concentration is the name of the game for James Bevis and colleagues in the shooting arena ahead of the R5 mixed 10m air rifle action.


Which other Brits are in action?

There are plenty of heats and qualifying action to watch out for, withNatasha Baker starting her equestrian campaign, followed by Maria Lyle in the T35 100m heats as she aims to be rapidly out of the blocks. Dmitri Coutya and Piers Gilliver will be hoping to score highly in the fencing, while Hannah Cockroft will be going in the T34 400m heats.

Rest of the world

Formerly a rugby union player and rower, Aussie runner Evan O'Hanlon will be a good watch in the T38 100m. The 28-year-old has five Paralympic medals at Beijing and London, and increasing his load is on the cards. After collecting gold in the Sydney Games all the way back in 2000, it took Barbara Niewiedzial 12 years to rack up another in the previous Paralympics. Last year at the world championships, she won all three of the events she raced in (400m, 800m, 1,500m) which was the perfect preparation for when it matters most in the Joao Havalange Stadium.


Did you know?

Stars being born is what we all love to see, and no more so than on the track where ParalympicGB's youngest track and field athlete, 15-year-old Kare Adenegan, will be lining up beside experienced pro Hannah Cockroft.

The summer has been a nervous time for many teens across the country as they await their exam results, and one of those was T35 sprinter Maria Lyle. The Scot only found out her grades recently and passed them all. There would be no better way for the double European champion to crown a fine period in her life by bagging a medal.



Day 7 - Wednesday, 14 September

Gold medal sports - nine in total: Archery, athletics, cycling road, equestrian, powerlifting, shooting, swimming, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair tennis


Highlights

Road cycling is on the agenda as Sarah Storey, Karen Darke and Megan Giglia go in the time trial in different classifications with the trio targeting podium finishes. The latter stages of the tennis has been reached with Jordanne Whiley leading the British charge, with Sophie Wells providing one of the British interests in the equestrian. GB's wheelchair rugby campaign gets underway with a group game versus defending champions Australia, while the pool sees Bethany Firth and Hannah Russell searching for sensational displays.


Which other Brits are in action?

As well as Sophie Wells in the equestrian, 10-time Paralympic gold medallist Lee Pearson is in action - watch out for him, he's one of the funniest people in the ParalympicsGB squad, every interview with Lee is entertaining. Hannah Cockroft and Kare Adenegan line up alongside each other for the T34 400m while more friendly enemies can also be found on the track as Isaac Towers and Ben Rowlings start alongside each other in the T34 800m.

Rest of the world

A mere 15-years old, Isis Holt only took up athletics in 2014 and, following two golds at the World Championships in Doha a year ago, she's one of her country's great medal hopes. A T35 runner, the teenager is in a rich vein of form and will want her youthful exuberance to shine through. Watch out for a cracking rivalry alongside GB's Maria Lyle, who will be relishing the battle.

On the other end of the age scale, 49-year-old Italian Alex Zanardi is a former Formula 1 driver who lost both of his legs in a car crash. In London, he won two golds and one silver in road cycling events, and his seniority and wisdom should be an advantage for him as he aims to create headlines once again.


Did you know?

GB haven't won a Paralympics fencing medal since 1988 when Caz Walton claimed gold, and the long wait could finally be brought to end by youngsters Piers Gilliver and Dmitri Coutya.

Everyone loves a supportive Grandma during the Olympics and Paralympics. And table tennis squad member Will Bayley has his to thank for where he is today - she purchased his first table and he hasn't looked back since.



Day 8 - Thursday, 15 September

Gold medal sports - Eight in total : Archery, athletics, canoe sprint, cycling road, equestrian, swimming, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair tennis


Highlights

It's a big day of tennis for ParalympicsGB with Gordon Reid and Jordanne Whiley among the highlights. The duo are looking to follow up their Wimbledon joy with top spot on the medal podium.Elsewhere, Ellie Simmonds has gold in her sights in the pool while Sophie Christiansen's infectious smile could be shining over the equestrian arena.
And on the track, the GB women's team will hope to get the baton round safely in their search for top spot in the T35-38 4x100m race, but the unpredictability of relays will make it fascinating viewing.


Which other Brits are in action?

Familiar colleagues Richard Whitehead and Dave Henson go in the T42 100m as the late night action hots up, with Laura Sugar and Sophie Kamlish prepped to run twice the distance. Switching to long distance, Jade Jones has fierce competition in the T54 5000m in the shape of America's Tatyana McFadden. But kicking the day's superhuman efforts off will be Jeanette Chippington, Emma Wiggs and Anne Dickins who have high expectations in the canoe.

Rest of the world

Brent Lakatos is a former wheelchair basketball player with pedigree and he'll be competing against Mo Jomni for the T53 800m title. He's the man to beat in his classification, and having won three silver medals at London 2012, he comes to Rio with a point to prove.

He's married to Brit Stef Reid, and bagged himself three world championship medals in 2015, proving he's in fine form ahead of the big one.

Performing in front of his home crowd, Brazilian Felipe Gomes will have huge home support. Following his T11 200m gold at the World Championships last year, it appears to be all falling into place for Games for the 30-year-old.

Irish amputee discus star Orla Barry took gold at the IPC Athletics European Championships in Grosseto in the lead up to Rio. In the Beijing, she finished fifth in her F57 classification, while London 2012 saw her pick up a bronze. There's one medal missing from her list - and she wants it.


Did you know?

Para-canoeist Anne Dickins has an interesting tale to tell. She was a Games Maker four years ago in London and did no sport from the time she left school until the age of 36. She's pretty good considering her extensive period away, and now she's the current world champion and world record holder - not too shabby!

When a 21-year-old Karen Darke was left paralysed from the waist down in 1993, she did something incredible in the same year.  She competed as a wheelchair athlete in the Great North Run, and has gone from strength to strength and is now a hand cyclist. Some 23 years later, Rio awaits. Incredible.



Day 9 - Friday, 16 September

Gold medal sports - 12 in total : Archery, athletics, boccia, road cycling, equestrian, 7-a-side football, goalball, swimming, table tennis, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair tennis

There's track and pool events as Hannah Cockroft, Dan Greaves, Steph Slater and Steph Millward in action. David Stone and Hannah Dines compete in the T1-2 cycling road race while Nigel MurrayJoshua Rowe and Claire Taggart represent ParalympicsGB in boccia.


Which other Brits are in action?

GB face hosts Brazil in the wheelchair rugby and there's more happening on the tennis court with Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker together in the doubles. The bubbly personality of Natasha Baker is sure to light screens in the equestrian individual grade II event, which is followed after by table tennis.

Rest of the world

The gold medal match is taking place in the goalball and there's likely to be some quick, breathtaking play to admire.

Sweden aren't renowned worldwide for their rugby abilities but they take on France in the wheelchair version and could put their names on the map. Meanwhile, a strong performance is expected from Poland's Barbara Niewiedzal in the T20 1500m in the early evening.

And Terezinha Guillhermina's one lap round the track should be a fast one in the T11 400m as she represents Brazil in the Joao Havalange Stadium, or will the pressure of being at home be too much?


Did you know?

GB wheelchair rugby player Ayaz Bhuta is a character, but he recently made a big change from basketball, where he was frustrated that opposition were squaring up to him when he was smashing into their chairs. But Bhuta has found the activity that suits his inner sporting aggression. He's among friends, although he's gone from being the ferocious one to being the smaller player in collisions, meaning he's had to adapt his game - in his own words, he's become more 'annoying'. That's what we like to see. 



Day 10 - Saturday, 17 September

Gold medal sports - nine in total: Archery, athletics, road cycling, 5-a-side football, sailing, sitting volleyball, swimming, table tennis, wheelchair basketball


Highlights

First up, Sarah Storey will be hungry for more triumph in the C5 road race. Soon after, we go from land to water as John Robertson, Helena Lucas, Hannah Stodel and Steve Thomas head to the marina in the sailing.

Dorset-born Paul Blake is tipped to bring home extra luggage when he goes in the T36 800m late in the evening, while Ellie Simmonds and Ollie Hynd are leading a jam-packed night of British representation in the pool.

Late into the night, Richard Chiassaro is yet again involved and he needs to be explosive in the T54 100m.


Which other Brits are in action?

The archery arena will have already seen its fair share of golds awarded, but there's still time for Jo Frith and John Walker to provide more medal winning moments.

In the athletics, it's Britain versus the rest of the world as Scottish 20-year-old Sammi Kinghorn comes up against Aussie Angie Ballard, while Teessider Jade Jones will be looking over at America's Tatyana McFadden with keen interest - beating her is the main goal but McFadden is defending Paralympic champion.

Rest of the world

A long jumper and sprinter, Germany's Markus Rehm's versatility means he very likely to get a medal, and not many would bet against him. He starts in the F44 long jump late in the evening - expect more headlines from this brilliant athlete.

Marlou van Rhijn is more than ready for the T44 100m - the defending champion was once a competitive swimmer but gave up due to lack of motivation, although that's proving no problem for her on the athletics scene.

Following a silver and gold in London, Rhijn will be aiming to establish herself as one of the biggest names in her category. However, Britain's Laura Sugar and Sophie Kamlish will have something to say about that...

Making his Paralympics debut, Stephen Clegg only started swimming properly in 2014 but he's part of a family affair with sister Libby and brother James winning medals in the previous Games.

With most of the action done and dusted, all that's left is decorated Paralympian David Weir to defend his marathon gold medal.

When all the sport comes to an end, the Closing Ceremony will hand the baton over to Tokyo, hosts of the 2020 Games. Will we see Japan prime minister Shinzo Abe dressed up as Super Mario again?

Rest of the world

In the women's marathon, Tatyana McFadden is eager to finish on the podium but Japan's Wakako Tsuchida is the main rival to keep a close eye on. The 41-year-old has a wealth of experience on her side, having participated in both the Winter and Summer Paralympics.

In total, around 4,350 athletes from more than 160 countries will have taken part in Rio to compete in 528 medal events in 23 different sports. Barriers are being broken too, as there's a 9.9 percent increase in participation of women in these Games, compared to London four years ago, while athletics and cycling have both provided more events for females to win medals.
