Nottingham's Charlotte Henshaw missed out on gold by just 300th of a second in the SB6 100m breaststroke with team-mate Liz Johnson taking bronze.
This morning Henshaw set a Paralympic record lowering the mark Johnson had laid down in the previous heat.
It led to hopes of a British one-two and it was a thrilling race tonight with Henshaw in a head to head with Viktoriia Savtsova.
The pair were stroke for stroke down the second 50m with the Ukrainian just touching the Briton out in a new Paralympic mark of 1:39.13, 0.03secs ahead of Henshaw.
