On Monday, September 3, Russia's Paralympic archers swept the whole podium in the men's standing category, but they weren't the only Russian sportsmen to bring medals that day.

      Russia's archer Timur Tuchinov beat Oleg Shestakov in the final 7-3, while another Russian, Mikhail Oyun beat the American Eric Bennett 6-0 in the bronze medal match.

      It is important to say that Russian archers failed to win any medals at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic games.

      Earlier that day, Russia's Raisa Tchebanika snatched Paralympic table tennis gold, beating Ukraine's Antonina Khodzynska. The competition was hold in the W6 category for athletes with impaired limb function.

       Russian swimmers were also successful that day with Denis Tarasov to win the gold in the men's 50 metre freestyle S8 and Oksana Savchenko to be the first in the women's 200 metre individual medley SM12. Both athletes set world records in their categories. Other Russian swimmers, Dmitry Kokarev (men's 100 metre freestyle S2) and Aleksandr Nevolin-Svetov (men's 200 metre individual medley SM12) gained silver medals. Russia also received the swimming bronze from Sergey Punko (men's 200 metre individual medley SM12) and Darya Stukalova (women's 200 metre individual medley SM12).

      Another Russian, Vladimir Andryushchenko, won silver in men's shot put, competing in the F12 visually impaired category.

       After September 3, Russia holds the third place in the Paralympic medal rankings with 14 golds, 15 silver and 10 bronze, trailing leaders China and Britain.
