Pearson wins 14th gold
Pearson is Britain’s third most successful Paralympian behind Mike Kenny and Sarah Storey, and his gold on Monday ensured he would leave Tokyo with a clean sweep of gold medals.
The 47-year-old won individual test gold on Thursday before teaming up with Baker and Sophie Wells to retain the team title that GB have held since the Atlanta Games in 1996.
His score comfortably beat that of Austria’s Pepo Puch, who took silver, while Wilson – on Sakura – won her second bronze medal of the Games with 76.754%.
“I am so proud of my horse. He was like a baby lion in that arena,” Pearson told Channel 4.
“I have been celebrating with the French drinking French wine, so I apologise but I thought it was worthy of the occasion.
“I didn’t care if I didn’t medal. I’m very pleased that I did and I’m pleased it was a gold, but my horse gave me everything. I held his hand, he held mine – he allowed me to ride him and I am unbelievably proud of him.”
Earlier, Baker – a six-time Paralympic champion across three Games – and Lottie won grade II silver with a score of 77.614% as Denmark’s Tobias Thorning Jorgensen took gold.
Small takes athletics gold, bronzes for Jenkins and Peacock
Small’s victory in the T33 100m marked his first Paralympic title, having won bronze in the event five years ago in Rio.
The 28-year-old clocked 17.73 seconds to hold off a late charge to the line by Kuwait’s defending champion Ahmad Almutairi.
Paralympic debutant Jenkins finished in a season’s best of 18.55secs to take bronze, while team-mate James Freeman placed fourth.
“I was born in 1993, I weighed one pound, six ounces. I had a 5% chance of living. To get here is crazy,” said Small.
“To watch London 2012, be inspired by David Weir and Hannah Cockroft, and then be in Rio four years later was a little bit strange.
“It’s the same with this, especially considering the Games weren’t supposed to happen. I’ve got to pinch myself sometimes.”
Two-time Paralympic sprint champion Peacock came to Tokyo looking to add a third consecutive title to his collection but he had to settle for bronze in an astonishing photo finish that saw him share the third-place spot on the podium.
He and Germany’s Johannes Floors were judged to have both clocked 10.786 seconds, after waiting more than three minutes for the decision to be made.
“It’s tough. There’s two ways to take it. I’ve got to be grateful,” Peacock, 28, told Channel 4.
Germany’s Felix Streng won gold in a time of 10.76, while Sherman Isidro Guity Guity took silver – Costa Rica’s first Paralympic medal – in a 10.78 personal best.
Paterson Pine wins archery gold, bronze for powerlifter Sugden
Paterson Pine was a late call-up to the ParalympicsGB squad but she proved herself deserving of a place by winning gold on her Games debut in the women’s individual compound.
The 23-year-old had defeated British team-mate, Rio gold medallist and world record holder Jessica Stretton by one point in the last 16, before wins over French and Italian opponents sealed her place in the final.
There, she defeated Chile’s Mariana Zuniga Varela 134-133.
“I’ve worked incredibly hard for it and there was always a chance just because of the amount of hard work that I have put in,” said Paterson Pine.
“But as an athlete, you’re always not too sure and so I have a lot more confidence in myself now.”
Sugden, competing at her third Paralympics but first as a powerlifter, won GB’s third and final powerlifting medal in Tokyo with bronze in the -86kg division, with a best lift of 131kg.
It followed bronze medals for Micky Yule and Olivia Broome earlier in the Games.
Sugden played wheelchair basketball at the 2008 and 2012 Paralympics before taking up powerlifting in 2017.
“I still think I’m going to wake up at some point,” she said. “I’ve worked really hard and I’m just proud that it’s paid off.”

“I am full of pride for being the first Chilean woman ever to win a medal,” said Mardones Sepulveda, who played wheelchair tennis in London and Rio.
“I want to be an inspiration for other girls that will start approaching the sport to become enthusiastic for it.
“I will tell them to believe in their dreams and in themselves, thinking that whatever goal they have, they can achieve it.”
