Only a few more days left of exciting 2020 Tokyo Paralympic action! So far China has a stranglehold on the total medal count (147) and gold medals (68) with a small lead in silver (43) and trails only the RPC in bronze medals (36 to 37) through Wednesday.
It has been a remarkable week for six Paralympians who lead the pack with five medals total each. Ihar Boki (Belarus, swimming), Maria Carolina Gomes Santiago (Brazil, swimming), Maksym Krypak (Ukraine, swimming), Carlotta Gilli (Italy, swimming), Andrii Trusov (Ukraine, swimming), and Lichao Wang (China, swimming) are tied atop the individual medal count with 17 other athletes sitting just below them with four total medals.
