World Record for  in one of the shot put events. It was on his third throw and he’s finished at the halfway mark. He seems to think he’ll be the only throwing that far today. I’d say he’s right, so go

It really is cool to see how seriously Peru has taken these games. I’ve seen equal marketing to the Pan Ams on their social media accounts, all the national TV and newspapers are reporting on the Parapan American Games. Plus, thousands of people turned out for the opening ceremony. In genuinely excited for these games. I love para-sport, and I can’t wait a great week of it.

Oh, very serious injury for an :ARG judoka. The medics had to stretcher him off the tatami. Hopefully he’s okay. He was on the wrong end of a very good ippon, but I think he did something to his foot/ankle before that.

Gold for :URU! Not unexpected, Henry Borges is a very good judoka, but still most likely their only gold medal of the games.
