It's day one at the Paralympics and it's a silver medal for Paralympic GB cyclist Mark Colbourne, who won his medal in the C 1-2-3 1km time trial. With Dai Coates sadly missing out on gold.

Ben Quilter, another gold medal favourite, also suffered disappointment on day one losing to defending Paralympic champion Mouloud Noura from Algeria after losing by an ippon in the men's -60kg at the Excel Centre.

In the pool, Jonathan Fox put down a marker for the final of the S7 100m backstroke, setting a new world record to qualify first for Thursday's final.

The gold medal rush in cycling is set to continue for GB as Sarah Storey stormed to a brilliant world record in the women's C5 pursuit to qualify quickest for the final.

British swimmer Nyree Kindred also set a new Paralympic record in the S6 100m backstroke within the first hour of the Games. The Men's basketball team start their campaign against Germany at 7pm this evening.

Looking ahead to Friday for more action, David Weir and Shelly Woods will begin their Paralympic campaign in the men's and women's 5000m on the opening day of athletics.

Brothers Sam and Ollie Hynd will race each other in the men's 400m freestyle, while Stephanie Millward will look to get close to South African 10-time Paralympic champion Natalie du Toit in the women's 100m backstroke final.

Jody Cundy and Jon-Allan Butterworth will hope to continue GB's success in the velodrome in the C4-5 time trial.

And The football 5-a-side competition begins with Great Britain taking on Spain before all eyes will be on favourites Brazil, who face France. So lots to look forward to there.
