The 15th summer Paralympic games begin today, with coverage of athletics, cycling, swimming and wheelchair basketball.

In London 2012, cyclist (and former Paralympic swimmer) Sarah Storey won Britain’s first gold medal of the games in the women’s individual C5 pursuit. Can she succesfully defend her title today and win a 12th Paralympic gold medal?

C4 has coverage throughout the day, and look out for a live Last Leg from Rio at 7.30pm with Adam Hills.
