Tokyo 2020 - The Irish In Action On Day Four Of The Paralympics

In the end, day three at the Paralympics brought some Irish heartbreak, as Ronan Grimes' brilliant run in the C4 400m pursuit left him just outside the medal places - but there are real hopes for medals on day four in Tokyo.

It's a quiet day for Team Ireland, but with plenty of chances of silverware.

Who are the Irish in action on day four of the Paralympics?

There are four clear shots at medals for Ireland on Saturday morning in Tokyo, across swimming, cycling, and athletics.

Greta Streimikyte strolled into the T13 1500m final on Friday, finishing a comfortable second in her heat, and she runs in the final on Saturday morning at 11:10am.

Swimmer Nicole Turner has already reached one final at the Paralympics, and day four brings another medal chance for her. The heats for the SB6 100m breaststroke start at 1:07am Irish time and, if she manages to qualify, her final from Tokyo will be at 9:07am Irish time.

Martin Gordon makes his Paralympic debut at 3:08am, and the men's B 1000m time trial is a medal event. Katie-George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal will go once more at the Velodrome, with qualifying for the B 3000m individual pursuit at 2am and a potential chance at a medal sometime around 3:45am.
