Lisa went really well today with a score of 71.476%. All five judges gave her scores above 70%, which is a great achievement.

Lisa and First Famous finished fourth in their test and also fourth overall in the Grade IV. The only trouble is at the Paralympics, fourth place is a very frustrating place to be - Lisa only narrowly missed out on taking home a medal!

The pair's excellent performance means that they have qualified for the Freestyle event on Friday, which is very exciting.

Sophie Wells of Great Britain won gold with a very professional performance, scoring 74.857%. Belgium’s London 2012 winner Michèle George took the silver with 74.333%, while The Netherlands’ Frank Hosmar secured bronze with 72.452%.

The Individual Championship for Grade II is tomorrow (tonight AEST) where Emma Booth and Zidane will complete their second test.

I'm really sorry but I have no Brazilience today - I have caught some bug and am going to bed!
