Yamada, Japan's youngest Paralympic medalist

Japanese swimmer Yamada Miyuki has made history. The 14-year-old won silver in the women's 100 meter-backstroke. She's now the youngest athlete to win a medal for Japan at the Paralympics.

Yamada was born without arms and has mobility challenges, so she normally uses an electric wheelchair.
Yamada got off to a good start in the race. She was overtaken by Singapore's Pin Xiu Yip, but finished second. It's Japan's first medal at the Games.
Yamada says she swam with the intention of enjoying the race and tried not to be nervous.

In table tennis, Egyptian Ibrahim Elhusseiny Hamadtou is making his second Paralympic appearance.
He was an inspiration to many at the Rio Games because of his unique playing style.
Hamadtou lost his arms in a train accident at the age of 10. He holds the racket in his mouth and serves with his right foot.
The 48-year-old played against Park Hong-kyu from South Korea, but lost in straight sets.
After the match, he said his goal for the rest of the games is to show others they can do anything.
