'It's a backwards step for the IPC'

Men's 100m T42

Richard Whitehead was asked about the future of his event on BBC Radio 5live.

The British bronze medallist gave this empassioned speech: "There isn't a 100m event in Tokyo [Paralympics], there's only 200m for myself and Dave Henson. That's because the IPC are trying to shrink the programme. For me it's about performance, inclusion, and offering opportunities for performance, not actually restricting the programme.

"It's a backwards step for the IPC. Hopefully they will do a u-turn on that decision - especially after today."

Britain's Richard Chiassaro speaks to BBC Radio 5 live after crashing in the T54 50m final: "Marcel Hug came into my lane a little bit, we touched and I flipped. My finger looks broken maybe. I might get it checked.

"The plan in the race was to stick with Marcel if he went into the lead and try to follow him."

Remarkably, Chiassaro was able to get back on the track and ended up finishing in fifth place.

Men's 400m T34

That's it - the final race of day four is done and British pair Ben Rowlings and Issac Towers have to settle for fifth and seventh place respectively.

Tunisian Walid Ktila takes gold in 50.56.

And finally...

Men's 400m T34 final

Last but by no means least, Ben Rowlings and Isaac Towers go in the final race of day four - the men's 400m T34 final.

Rowlings picked up bronze in this event at the European Championships last year and finished just behind team-mate Towers, who collected silver.

Towers also took home Euro gold in the 800m - one of five individual medals he collected.

It's just one of those things. It doesn't happen very often. Sometimes you get track rash and grazes but at this speed when you're so close, you can be a centimetre off their back bar. The slightest touch you can be out and you can't jump out the way.

A huge groan goes around the stadium as they watch the horrible collision.

Richard Chiassaro is upright and wheeling around to the home straight now.

Gold medal - Marcel Hug

Men's 800m T54 final

A very strange ending to this race, but the Paralympic champion comes out with the gold medal.

Marcel Hug finishes first in 1:37.64, ahead of Yang Liu of China and Saichon Konjen of Thailand.

They're doing 23 or 24 mph. Richard's compensator which guides you around the bend, he's hit it twice and it's cost him around the bend. You have to hit it cleanly to get you around the bend.

Ouch!

Oh my...a huge collision in this race.

Richard Chiassaro falls from his chair and takes out around three or four other riders as they come into the home straight.

Marcel Hug is out in front of a close-knit group, and Briton Richard Chiassaro is right in there on the inside.

Men's 800m T54 final

You might recognise the name Marcel Hug in this race.

Hug is a long-time rival of Britain's David Weir. They've enjoyed many a battle over the years and the Paralympic champion goes in lane five.

The Swiss athlete is the world record holder in this category.

Chiassaro in action

Men's 800m T54 final

There are still three more British athletes left to compete tonight - and the next one is up in the men's 800m T54 final at 21:31 BST.

Richard Chiassaro were part of the victorious 4x400m relay team at the European Championships last year.

Chiassaro, 35, who has spina bifida, also picked up four individual medals at the same event - including silver in the 800m.

The fixers

Chris Osborne

I was given a bit of behind the scenes access to what they call the F1 pit stop here at London Stadium.

With so many wheelchairs, blades, prosthetics and throwing seats, it's inevitable that some of it will need a tune up at some point.

And that's where these guys come in.

British T42 long jumper Luke Sinnott (pictured above) said he had felt a clicking in the joint of hid blades. So he was in the tent with his legs off, getting them re-aligned and sand removed from the joint.

Sand is an occupational hazard of the long jumper.

There's 24 staff, working across two shifts, sewing machines, solder irons and even hot ovens to keep the para-athletes - and their kit - in working condition.

Throughout that T20 1500m there was a high-pitched screech coming from over my left shoulder.

Turns out it was a relation of Steve Morris who put as much welly into her cheering as the British pair put into their running on the track.

James Hamilton goes over with Morris to see some friends and family,

American Tatyana McFadden after winning her second gold of the day, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "It was a really good race. My style was kind of rough but I knew I could make it up in the transition. It's perfect weather to race.

"I was exhausted coming in. I tried to take a little nap and do some therapy on my legs and try to stay relaxed. In training we train twice a day and it's in preparation for days like today."

Steve Morris of GB was looking good but fell off the pace during the last lap and had to settle for fourth, with his compatriot James Hamilton coming in sixth.

Next up is the men's 1500m T20 final, featuring Steve Morris and James Hamilton from Britain.

That's three golds in three events for the American Tatyana McFadden. And it's her second of the day!

The Paralympic champion notches her 13th world title in 53.74 seconds - a second ahead of Lihong Zou in second and Cheri Madsen in third.

The queen of the track

Women's 400m T54 final (20:57 BST)

Not only is Tatyana McFadden an incredible para-athlete, she's also got a fascinating back story.

Born in St Petersburg, Russia, with spina bifida, McFadden spent the first six years of her life in an orphanage before being adopted by Deborah McFadden and moving to the USA.

The 28-year-old has gone on to win seven Paralympic and 12 world titles, as well as four wheelchair marathon grand slams at Boston, London, Chicago and New York.

She also picked up a medal in sit-ski cross-country at the Winter Paralympics.

McFadden has already won the 1500m T54 race today and is now looking to add the 400m title to her impressive collection.

Britain's Laura Sugar, who finished fifth in the women's 100m T44 final, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "I know I'm capable of the time that got bronze or maybe silver and it just wasn't there. I’m still learning. I'm so pleased for Sophie. It didn't come together for her in the final in Rio and it's great to have someone else win the title."

Medal ceremonies are a little different at these World Championships.

Rather than have them in the stadium, athletes pick up their gongs from a stage in the fan park adjacent to the venue.

It means anyone can come along and see Jonnie Peacock, Richard Whitehead, Hannah Cockroft and the gang receive their rewards. It also means things move along a bit quicker during the competitions - there are a looooooot of events.

Today was Jonnie's day to get his hands on the gold medal he earned by winning the T44 100m final last night.

I hunted him down inside the stadium and got a closer look at the bling.

Kamlish reacts to gold medal

Women's 100m T44 final

Britain's T44 100m gold winner Sophie Kamlish speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "I just want to keep doing as well as i have this season. I didn't know if i could do it after Rio but not this time.

"I really wanted a medal. I knew I'd be disappointed if it wasn't gold. The false start shakes everyone up. I was a bit pleased because it felt like my first start wasn't great. I beat Marlou van Rhijn in the Manchester City Games and now I can do it on a much bigger scale."

Britain's T34 800m winner Hannah Cockroft on BBC Radio 5 live: "I’m really happy with that race. I knew I was in for a good time. Going out today I didn't know if they were gong to go quick or sit in. When Kare went from the gun I was proud of her. When it slowed I shouted at her to pull in and I can help and it worked really well. It's what teams do.

"It's fantastic to have three of us coming through, it's not a one horse race at the moment. I'm not at full fitness. I feel like I'm smoking 100 cigarettes a day.

"Hopefully I'll have more of a voice by the 400m (on Thursday). I love the 400m."

Men's 200m T36 final

No medals for Britain in this one.

James Turner of Australia finishes first in a world record time 24:09 seconds. He's miles ahead of the rest of the field.

Graeme Ballard comes in sixth and Paul Blake finishes eighth.

Up next is the men's 200m T36 final, featuring two Brits in Paul Blake and Graeme Ballard.

Blake is the reigning world T36 champion over 800m, having won gold in Doha in 2015 and at Lyon in 2013 and is also the reigning Paralympic champion over 400m.

Ballard, who like Blake has cerebral palsy, is the former T34 100m world record holder who finished third in this event in 2002.

The holder

Women's 100m T44 final

Dutch sprinter Marlou van Rhijn goes for double sprint gold in the 100m and 200m T44 in London.

Nicknamed 'The Blade Babe', the 25-year-old used to be a swimmer before switching to athletics in 2010.

Two years later, she was a Paralympic champion.

She has a perfect record in the Worlds – two championships, four events, four gold medals.

Now Van Rhijn is aiming to retain those medals for a third time.

A world record run

Women's 100m T44 final (20:20 BST)

What world records could you set on a Monday morning? The most amount of coffee consumed in an hour? The latest 9am start you've ever accomplished?

If you're Britain's Sophie Kamlish, you start your day with a 100m world record in the T44 heats.

"I didn't think I'd get a world record because I slowed down at the end. It felt like I was walking when I knew I had qualified," said the 20-year-old, who has a below-the-knee amputation to her right leg.

Kamlish crossed the line in 12.90 secs, after taking 0.03 secs off her previous mark, set at the Rio Paralympics.

She will line up alongside compatriot Laura Sugar and defending champion Marlou van Rhijn of the Netherlands in tonight's final at 20:20 BST.

'That was rubbish'

Men's 100m T42

I suppose it's better than nothing. I'm very disappointed. I'm a perfectionist and that was rubbish. Sometimes in life you have obstacles. This championships has been full of ups and downs. I'll bounce back from this.

"A time of 12:21 - that's not taking the event forward. For me, being competitive is what I want to be. I should have run better than this morning."

Whitehead said he still wants to improve on his 200m time for Tokoyo 2020, so maybe we haven't seen the last of the him on the track...

There was so much pressure on him. It was almost like he was trying too hard. He didn't have space or time in the last few metres - he looked like he was going to throw himself through the line and that's where he lost time.
