I have it from a reliable source that there were many phonecalls going back and forth :-) Be in to win a Celtic bar tab.

Hope you are all enjoying watching the Para athletes in Tokyo. Some outstanding performances.

Friday line up and potentially 4 medal opportunities for NZ today: Swimming Heats from the Tokyo Aquatics Centre kickstarts the day, followed by Track Cycling from the Izu Velodrome and Athletics action from the Tokyo Olympic Stadium. The evening sees Swimming Finals followed by New Zealand taking on Canada in Wheelchair Rugby, which is a great watch!!

Keep in those bubbles a bit longer. Take care everyone.
