More excitement in store today at the Paralympics on the track and indoors with the start of the 'murderball' competition.

In athletics, it is the hotly anticipated men's 100m first round - Britain has Jonnie Peacock - 'the fastest amputee in the world' - who will take to the track today in preparation for his 100m showdown against 'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius. Jonnie Peacock smashed the world record in June, when he ran the distance in a blistering 10.85 seconds - and the men's 800m final, where David Devine is the favourite.

Then it's the wheelchair action today in rugby, tennis and fencing:

Wheelchair rugby - otherwise known as 'murderball' - gets under way. The sport is so-called, as it is so brutal, that welders are on hand at the side of the pitch to patch up battered equipment - Mad Max style.

There is also the wheelchair tennis, where Peter 'the Quadfather' Norfolk and Andy Lapthorne are in the doubles gold medal match, and wheelchair fencing, where Brits are competing throughout the day.

Also the finals are on for shot put (Aled Davies), discus (Derek Derenalagi), long jump (Stefanie Reid), women's 200m (Hannah Cockroft), javelin throw (Nathan Stephens), and the 800m, women's 1500m, women's 100m, men's 4x100m relay (Richard Whitehead), and men's 5000m (David Weir).

In addition, there is the archery - British women coming up against South Korea at 9:30, and men against Chinese Taipei at 10:30.

In road cycling, Sarah Storey and Jon Allen are in time trials at 10:30 onwards.

Then it's over to swimming, where Charlotte Henshaw and Elizabeth Johnson are both going in the 100m breaststroke SB6 heats this morning, and should be in the final this evening. And the Hynd brothers, Sam and Oliver, will battle it out in the 200m medley SM8 – having already won silver and bronze in the 400m event.

So lots going on and some great medal chances to add to the hardware.
