Bath's Ben Rushgrove finished sixth in the 100 metres T36 race at the Paralympics last night with a time of 12.37 secs. His team mate Graeme Ballard won silver.

The 24-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, is still in with a chance of a medal - he's in action again on Thursday in the 200 metres. He won silver at the Beijing games in 2008.
