The Games is taking place against the backdrop of a Covid-19 surge in Japan, with tighter restrictions being enforced across the next fortnight as a result.
ParalympicsGB claimed a total of 147 medals and a remarkable 64 golds in Rio de Janeiro five years ago, building on a successful home London Games in 2012 in which those tallies stood at 120 and 34 respectively.
Britain has taken a team of 228 athletes to the Tokyo Games, where there is a more modest medal target of between 100-140 set by UK Sport, with predictions hard to make given how little para-sport has been able to take place during the Covid-19 pandemic.
