Wow, lots more medals on Friday including 1500m gold and bronze, canoe sprint gold and 2 bronze (one in a photo finish - he was fading towards the line and I didn't think he would make it!), a very exciting high jump gold (my second favourite event after pole vault), table tennis silver, road race silver, men's doubles tennis silver (in an epic match that came down to a final set tie-break!), swimming silver (so narrowly missing out on gold), 200m silver for Richard Whitehead, javelin bronze (kind of agonising as she led throughout the competition until two others threw further with their final attempts!) and women's singles tennis bronze (another epic that went our way this time). We also won bronze in the universal mixed 4x100m relay which was apparently later upgraded to silver as China got DQed. Such a weird event, but fun! (If you didn't see it, the first leg is visually impaired sprinters with their guides, the second runners are amputees with prosthetics, the third have coordination impairments and the fourth are wheelchair athletes - quite the motley crew!)
Boo, there is no coverage of the taekwondo. Really wish I could watch this - it looked very action-packed judging from the live scores on the website, and we won a silver medal in it! Glad I got to see some archery at last (it's quite something to see a one-armed archer drawing the bowstring with their teeth). They have also started showing the shooting now, on a day when we didn't qualify for the final! Gah!
