London's Olympic Park is playing host to hundreds of thousands of people on the final weekend of the Paralympics.
On the penultimate day of competition Oscar Pistorius will defend his 400m title as the Park hosts London 2012 action for the last time.
Meanwhile in the Aquatics Centre Great Britain's Ellie Simmonds will aim to retain her 100m freestyle crown.
Crowds flocking to the Park will be basking in temperatures of up to 27C ahead of Sunday's closing ceremony.
As competition started on Saturday the host nation was sitting second in the overall table having picked up 114 medals.
Great Britain surpassed their 103-medal target for the 2012 Paralympics in emphatic style on Thursday as Hannah Cockroft, David Weir and Jonnie Peacock picked up medals.
On Sunday hopes are high that Weir will bring home his fourth gold medal when he competes in the London wheelchair marathon.
Weir, 33, known as The Weirwolf of London, has already won the 800m, 1500m and 5,000m.
Once the sport has concluded, the closing ceremony will bring the curtain down on what has been one of the most successful Paralympics in the event's history.
Organisers have sold some 2.7 million Paralympic tickets - beating targets by 200,000 and predicted sales by £10m.
Stars due to perform at Sunday's sold-out ceremony include Jay-Z and Rihanna and hundreds of performers in bandstands across the UK are expected to join in a rendition of Coldplay's Viva La Vida.
Speaking at a press briefing on Saturday the show's director Kim Gavin promised a festival of the flame, paying tribute to the human spirit.
British stars of the Olympics and Paralympics will then celebrate their success during a victory parade through the streets of London on Monday.
