Team SA made it a double podium finish, as Ndodomzi Ntutu took the gold ahead of compatriot Hilton Langenhoven in the Men's T12 100m final. This was the fourth time at these games that South Africa had a duo on the podium.

Earlier in the day, Alan Hatherly picked up bronze in the men's cross-country mountainbiking.
