Patrick Anderson confirmed his status as the player of the London 2012 Wheelchair Basketball tournament as he led Canada to gold in the final.
The 33-year-old, who came out of retirement last year, has been head and shoulders above the rest of the field and he came up big when it mattered most with 34 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in Canada's 64-58 win over Australia.
Anderson sparked the run that saw Canada take the lead early in the second quarter, and although Australia fought back to level it 48-48 with 7:30 left, Canada — and Anderson — proved too strong down the stretch.
Earlier, US beat Great Britain to win the bronze medal. Britain's shooting touch deserted them when they needed it most and they missed out on a third straight Paralympic bronze 61-46. The tone was set early on, with neither team able to score in the opening 2:30 before Steve Serio got US started.
The British duck was not broken until 4:20 in when Ade Orogbemi raced through for a lay-up. US were making the most of British struggles, and Serio soon made it 12-6.
Joe Chambers was looking in inspired form for US and he reeled off eight straight to power them into a 25-12 lead.
