...

Ankur Dhama has finished THIRD due to Eslami and Kossakowski being disqualified. 

...

NOO!!!! Deniz Semih has finished first after a fatal error from Kossakowski.

...

Ankur and Vipin are nowhere in the picture at the moment. Not looking good for the Indian. 

...

Kossakowski is racing like poetry in motion. Brilliant. 

...

The top three are quite ahead of the rest. 

...

Ankur and Vipin are now in fifth position. The gap between them and the fourth pair is quite a lot. 

...

Ankur is in second last position. Great stuff from Kossakowski and Valenzuela. 

...

He is back up and running now. 

...

OH NOOOO!!!!! Ankur's guide collides and falls down. 

...

GO!!!!!!

...

He is up against some tough opponents. Remember, top three from each heat along with next three fastest qualify. 

...

The racers are ready here.

...

Can Ankur Dhama finish first in his heat?

...

We are just about to get underway here in Rio. 

...

Oscar RAXON
Alekssander Kossakowski
Hamid Eslami
Cristian Valenzuela
Ankur Dhama
Semih Deniz

...

We are around 10 minutes away from the first heat and lets show you the line-ups. 

...

There are three heats in event, which comprise 17 athletes and they are divided into two groups of six and one of five. 

...

Just to think about the fact Ankur is first fully blind athlete from India to participate in the Paralympics is inspirational enough. Sportskeeda met with him a couple of months back and just to see him train was pure astonishment. He will be running with his guide Vipin, who is like his vision. 

...

Hello friends and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the 2016 Rio Paralympics and today we have for you the Men's 1500m - T11 event.
