What to watch: Day 11The final day of London 2012 includes the marathon, the wheelchair rugby and football 7-a-side finals, and the Closing Ceremony which will be headlined by Coldplay. 09 Sep 2012
The entire day’s action, as well as the complete Closing Ceremony, can be viewed live around the world at Paralympic.org.
Morning: The final day of competition begins with the marathon in the morning, as athletes take to the road for the men’s and women’s T12, T46 and T54 events.
A lot of eyes will be on the men’s T54 marathon, as Great Britain’s David Weir goes for his fourth gold medal of London 2012, with challengers Marcel Hug of Switzerland and Kurt Fearnley of Australia lining up right beside him.
Fearnley won the last two Paralympic Games marathons, and is still seeking his first gold of these Games.
USA’s Tatyana McFadden already has three golds and bronze to her name in London, and will look to add another medal to her haul in the women’s T54 marathon
Afternoon: Australia will take on Canada in the wheelchair rugby gold-medal game at the Basketball Arena. Ryley Batt, arguably the best player in the world, leads an Australian team that finished in second place at both the last World Championships and Paralympic Games. But after upsetting world No. 1 USA in the semi-finals, Canada is no longer a team to be looked over.
Over at the Riverbank Arena, the football 7-a-side final will feature Russia and Ukraine. The Russians are the reigning world champions, but Ukraine defeated them in the gold-medal match at Beijing 2008.
Evening: The London 2012 Paralympic Games come to a finish with the Closing Ceremony, which will be headlined by Coldplay and allow billions across the world to see the athletes who gave them the memories of a lifetime once again. The entire day’s action, as well as the complete Closing Ceremony, can be viewed live around the world at Paralympic.org.
