    at the 2020 Paralympics
     
    72 medals (tied Rio 2016)
    7th place (tied London 2012)
    22 golds (best ever, previously was London 2012 with 21)
     
    at the 2020 Olympics
     
    21 medals (best ever, previously was Rio 2016 with 19)
    12th place (best ever, previously was Rio 2016 in 13th)
    7 golds (tied Rio 2016)
     
    So Brazil tied or surpassed every best performance ever, so I'm happy with Tokyo 2020

    Final Medal Table
     
     
     
    Comparing with 2016 (only nations in the top 30 in either edition), the NPCs which improved their performance in the rankings:
     
    2016 2020 +/- NPC 64 11 +53 74 22 +52 48 10 +38 47 18 +29 41 19 +22 43 24 +19 29 20 +9 33 30 +3 7 5 +2 15 13 +2 4 3 +1 8 7 +1  
    NPCs which ranked the same as in 2016:
     
    2016 2020 +/- NPC 1 1 - 2 2 - 9 9 - 16 16 -  
    NPCs which ranked lower than in 2016:
     
    2016 2020 +/- NPC 25 26 -1 12 14 -2 23 25 -2 27 29 -2 3 6 -3 5 8 -3 11 15 -4 28 31 -4 6 12 -6 25 31 -6 10 17 -7 21 28 -7 13 21 -8 19 27 -8 14 23 -9 22 34 -12 17 33 -16 18 35 -17 20 41 -21 24 51 -27 30 64 -34  
    Of course being higher or lower in the rankings don't always translate as a better or worse performance. Rankings can be deceiving, as Azerbaijan places 10th with only 19 medals (14 of those being gold) and France is only 14th with 54 medals (I'm sure they'll do fantastic in Paris). Compared to Rio, 8 NPCs continued in the top 10, with and out and and in. is the first host nation since in 2004 to not place in the top 10, but huge improvement compared to 2016 (no gold medals vs 13 golds now).
     
    and improved a lot, and even though they won less medals than in 2016 (18 vs 16 now), the great number of golds have placed in the top 20 for the first time since the 80s. Biggest disappointment should be with their worst ranking ever (aside from their first participation where they didn't win any medals). Tokyo definitely wasn't good for them as they also had their worst ranking at the Olympics since the 70s.

    Yeah, I noticed this, but got annoyed that not a single news site or blog or whatever mentioned anything more than "China filed a protest and it was accepted"  
     
    I did see later that China tried protesting several times during the competition, but the referees didn't accept it. They then went higher up, as is their right, and of course that process takes a bit longer (sadly). One can definitely assume the Brazilian did break some rule and the fault lies with him, but it is very bad - to say the least - that the video on which the decision was based isn't shown anywhere or at least to the Brazilians.
     
    On a more positive note, we were happy to cheer Thomaz to 400m silver  
     
    My earlier comment about a winter medal was mistaken, he has apparently mostly given up the skiing, since athletics ends up giving him much more money (although every actual Olympian/Paralympian in Brazil gets quite a decent base salary, simply competing in any event will already give you 3000 reais per month for four years). I was confused with Cristian Ribera in the sit skiing, who is going for a medal in Beijing.

    vinipereira got a reaction from Grassmarket in [POLL] Which Nations will be in the Medal Count Top 10 at the Summer Paralympic Games 2020?   
    With just a few events to go, and have secured 1-2. The others are too close to call. and will fight for 3rd, and for 5th (Ukraine needs a gold medal in Shooting), and and for 7th. has secured 9th place.
     
     
    has a pretty good chance of ending in the top 10 with only 19 medals! They have 14 golds, and  has 13. Germany has to win gold in the last Shooting event in order to get 10th place (which is difficult, but possible since they have a world class shooter competing). With 10 golds, is not entirely out of the equation just yet, but it would have to win at least 4 gold medals in the last day.

    I don't think this is classification issue. If there was classification issue, he would have been disqualified. I think it must be some issue which came up after his first throw which resulted in yellow card and removal of his remaining throws. 
     
    I think Syrian also had atleast one of his throws removed retrospectively. During live scoring, he went ahead of Indian and then dropped back below him. 
     
    I am sorry, but these things should not happen. You can't come back half a day later and say sorry we made a mistake, you are not eligible for this competition or sorry, the WR throw that you made yesterday was a foul and our judges couldn't spot it in real time. All these things should be handled before competition. 
     
    You want to delay the competition, delay it but all these issues need to be solved in real time. Not a day after.

    Either way, the whole situation is a little iffy. Fair? If it's the rule, sure. But they shouldn't wait until the end of competition to announce he is disqualified - especially considering that he broke the WR
     
    This gives a bad look for those involved including the ukranian team, even though they protested before the start.

    Also hurting is the fact that one of our biggest ever medalists (André Brasil) was recently considered ineligible for Paralympic swimming which has ended his career.
