Canada snatched the women's wheelchair basketball title from the United States in a pulsating final at the Lima 2019 Parapan American Games, reversing the result of the gold medal-match at Toronto 2015.

The Canadians came from behind in the second half to beat the defending Parapan American Games champions 67-64 in the most compelling game of the tournament, at Sports Center 1.

With neither team able to dominate, the result was in doubt until the final seconds, when Kathleen Dandeneau sunk a vital long shot to seal her side's three-point victory.

The 29-year-old, who only took up wheelchair basketball in 2015, contributed a match-winning 25 points and 10 assists in what she called a "dream final".

"I've come a long way, that's for sure," Dandeneau said.

"Back then I could barely move a chair, so the idea of me being the one on that spot in this final was a million miles away.

"Yeah, it's pretty cool, it's pretty surreal."

Arinn Young also played a critical role, with 20 points of her own.

By reaching the final, both Canada and the US have qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

The bronze-medal match saw Brazil defeat Argentina 69-44.

In men's football five-a-side, reigning Paralympic and world champions Brazil claimed their fourth successive Parapan American title, defeating Argentina 2-0 thanks to goals from Jeferson da Conceição Gonçalves and Cássio Lopes dos Reis.

Mexico took home bronze following a 1-0 victory over Colombia.

In the men's wheelchair tennis singles final, Argentina's Gustavo Fernández overcame compatriot Agustín Ledesma 6-1, 6-1.

It came a day after the two players combined to win the men's doubles crown.

They were joined on the men's singles podium by Brazil's Daniel Rodrigues, a 6-2, 6-3 victor at the expense of the American Casey Ratzlaff in the bronze-medal match.

Canada's Robert Shaw beat the US' David Wagner 6-1, 6-3 in the quad singles final, while America's Emmy Kaiser and Dana Mathewson defeated Colombia's Angélica Bernal and Johana Martinez 6-3, 7-5 in the women's doubles final.

In road cycling, the US claimed two of the five gold medals on offer today.

Jill Walsh led an American one-two finish in the mixed time trial T1-2 ahead of Matthew Rodriguez, clocking a time of 34 min 14.185sec to her compatriot's 34:17.450.

Canada's Michael Shetler completed the top three in 34:18.338.

There was also success for the US in the women's time trial C1-5 finals, with Clara Brown taking gold in 29:57.640 and Samantha Bosco the bronze in 30:27.426.

Sandwiched between them in the runner's-up spot was Colombia's Daniela Munevar in 30:18.944.

The other road cycling winners were Peru's Rimas Hilario in the men's time trial C1-5 finals in 40:19.951, Colombia's Nelson Serna and guide Marlon Perez in the mixed time trial B finals in 38:31.217, and Canada's Matthew Kinnie in the mixed time trial H1-5 finals in 31:17.880.

Another gold medal went Peru's way in taekwondo after Leonor Espinoza overcame Mexico's Claudia Romero 28-7 in the women's K44 under-49 kilograms final.

Brazil topped the other two taekwondo podiums thanks to wins for Silvana Mayara in the women's K44 under-58kg final and Nathan Sodario in the men's K44 under-61kg final.

Mayara beat fellow Brazilian Cristhiane Neves 19-10, while Sodario defeated the Dominican Republic's Geraldo Castro 40-13.

History was made in powerlifting as Herbert Aceituno Lopez won El Salvador's first Parapan American Games gold medal in 20 years, with a 182kg lift in the men's up to 65kg event.

Aceituno Lopez's winning lift, on his third attempt, gave him a Parapan American record.

In swimming, Mexican swimmers Diego Lopez Diaz and Gustavo Sánchez Martínez both secured their fourth gold medals at Lima 2019 to take their country's tally in the sport to 22, a national record.

Lopez Diaz won the men's 50m freestyle S3 event in 47.11, while Sánchez Martínez came out on top in the men's 50m breaststroke SB3 final in a Parapan American record-breaking time of 54.23.
