The United States has qualified for the wheelchair rugby event at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, beating defending champions Canada in the final at the Lima 2019 Parapan American Games.

The US triumphed 58-47 at the Villa El Salvador Sport Center to avenge their loss in the gold-medal match at the last edition of the Parapan American Games in Toronto.

Charles Aoki led the way for the Americans with 18 tries, while team mates Joshua Wheeler and captain Joseph Delagrave racked up 14 and 11 respectively.

In the bronze-medal match, Colombia defeated Brazil 46-43.

It secures the country a repeat of their third-place finish from Toronto 2015, where they also overcame Brazil in the play-off.

Among the other sports concluding at Lima 2019 was track cycling, with the US adding two more gold to their tally to finish top of the medal standings.

Brazil was the dominant force in table tennis and won four of today's five finals to finish comfortably at the summit of the sport's medal standings.

They defeated Chile in the men's team class 1-2 and 9-10 gold medal matches to add to victories over the US in the men's team class 6-8 final and Mexico in the women's team class 2-5 final.
