4:27pm - The amazing Diego Lopez Diaz
Expect more amazing moments from Diego Lopez Diaz tonight.
4:22pm - The Robert Griswold redemption
He won it, then he hadn't won it, then he'd won it again.

We're expecting more of this passion and emotion tonight.
McKenzie could make it a golden hat-trick tonight in the Women's 50m Freestyle S7 Heat 1 but her greatest obstacle will be her friend and teammate Mallory Weggeman - they clocked exactly the same time in qualifying this morning: 33.04

More joy tonight?
12:22pm - Ukraine continue chart topping success
Ukraine's Denys Ostapchenko has an outstanding swim in the Men's 200m Freestyle S3 Heat 2.
The Ukraine brought their strongest squad to London and they've been rewarded, the country currently tops the medal table and that's where they'll aim to stay before the final knees-up tonight.
Mexico's Diego Lopez Diaz might have something to say about Ukraine dominance though, he's second to Ostapchenko and will have his eyes on the top prize too.
Italy's Vincenzo Boni is very much in the reckoning too, he won Heat 1 with a credible time.
12:19pm - Britain's double trouble
Suzanna Hext aces Heat 1 and Tully Kearney wins Heat 2, the Women's 100m Freestyle S5 Heats are twice as nice for the home support.

Japan's Tomita Uchu swims the fastest time in the Men's 400m Freestyle S11 Heat 1 and China's Hua Dongdong tops Heat 2.

11:50am - This week has been beyond limitations
11:42am - Men's and women's 50m Freestyle S9
The organisers have saved some goodies for us in tonight's finals.
These 50m sprints are going to be some of the best of the entire competition.

Barlaam is the man to beat in 24.78.
But anything that Barlaam can do, Sophie Pascoe can do too.
New Zealand's bemedalled swimmer breaks a Championship Record too!
She'll take some beating tonight.
11:35am - USA's Joint forces
McKenzie Coan and Mallory Weggeman record the exact same time in the Women's 50m Freestyle S7 Heat 1!
33.04 is the mark shared by the two USA swimmers.
Weggeman's world record time of 31.64 has stood in this event since Eindhoven 2010.
In Heat 2 Denise Grahl, Ani Palian and Guilia Terzi all prove that they're in the picture for the podium too.
The U.S. wants more today:
11:27am - 50m corker in waiting
The Men's 50m Freestyle S7 promises much too.
Sergei Sukharev swims a Championship Record in 27.90 to lead this one coming into the final.
Bohdan Hrynenko wins the second heat, but a 50m race really can surprise you, particularly when Andrii Trusov, Carlos Serrano, Yevhenii Bohodaiko and Federico Bicelli are in the pond.
11:19am - Pikalova leads exciting 50
Daria Pikalova swims the quickest heat in the Women's 50m Freestyle S13 series.
But as always in a 50m dash it's extremely close, Ayano Tsujiuchi, Anna Stetsenko, Katja Dedekind, are all withing a second of Pikalova.
Gilli Carlotta is fractions from Pikalova's lead time in Heat 2 with Shoksanamkhon Tushpulatova touch-tight.
A spectacular final in prospect later.

But before that we'll see her in tonight's final!
11:03am - Today the day for Suzuki?
With three silver medals and one bronze already in the bank, Takayuki Suzuki would love to grab that elusive gold on the final day of competition.
He's done everything right, and nothing wrong, but Suzuki has just missed out on gold by fractions of seconds.
He's just topped the Men's 50m Breaststroke SB3 Heat 1 and given himself every chance in the fast lane.
But look at Morelli go!
New Championship Record for Italian Efrem Morelli: 48.24
Another name looms large in that second heat too, Roman Zhdanov doesn't swim a great time, this not one of his strongest events, but he's always a threat.
11am - Championship Record Sunday?
Has a ring to it.
10:49am - Electric morning for British swimmers
