CORRECTION: In the women's wheelchair basketball competition, we said the US defeated China 41-36, when in fact, China won this game. China will face Netherlands for the gold medal. The US will play Germany for the bronze. We regret this error. It's Day 10 of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, which means the team events are starting to wind down. But, the competition's heating up! We've got all the action on the day's events, who was soggy and who stayed dry, and (as always) some thoughts on today's television coverage, which almost makes us miss Mike and Maya.  
The action at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics keeps getting better....or maybe we're just seeing the same races over and over, thanks to the joys of NBC's coverage. We're starting to see some new sports come up on the feeds, and Alison has found a replacement for the rugby wheelchair-sized hole in her heart! Today's sports program includes: Archery Athletics Badminton Boccia Cycling - Road Goalball Shooting Sitting Volleyball Swimming Table Tennis Wheelchair Basketball Wheelchair Tennis Plus, our mainstay segments: Feed Beefs What Officiating/Volunteer Job Would We Do?
