Ukraine followed one of the best performances of the Paralympic Games so far with one of the best celebrations after a 2-0 victory over Sweden in the men's class 6-8 team competition at the RiocentroPavilion 3 in Rio de Janeiro.
South Korea and China also claimed titles today on a busy day of team finals.
The Ukrainians provided the best moment for the crowd, however, after Viktor Didukh secured the second of his two victories.
He had first teamed up with Maxym Nikolenko to win the opening doubles rubber 3-2 over Linus Karlsson and Emil Andersson.
Didukh then overcame Karlsson in straight games to seal the crown before being enveloped by his team-mates.
Soon after members of the British team let emotions rip and danced around the arena after Aaron McKibbin had sealed the bronze medal with a 2-1 victory over China.
South Korea had earlier continued the form they showed with a semi-final win over China by beating Taiwan 2-1 in their class 4-5 final.
Kim Junggil and Kim Younggun made the ideal start in beating Cheng Ming-Chieh and Lin Yen-Hung in four games, 3-1.
At the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Iranian judoka Arash Miresmaeili was disqualified for weighing in at nearly four pounds above the limit for his weight class of his under-66 kilograms match against an Israeli opponent Ehud Vaks in the first round. It was claimed Miresmaeili had gone on an eating binge to protest the International Olympic Committee's recognition of the state of Israel. Iran does not recognise the state of Israel, and Miresmaeili's actions won praise from high-ranking Iranian officials. Mohammad Khatami, the country's President at the time, was quoted as saying Miresmaili's actions would be "recorded in the history of Iranian glories". He was later awarded $125,000 by the Government - the same amount given to Olympic gold medallists.
