Following the men’s team falling agonisingly short of the medal positions last night, it is the turn of the women in the team gymnastics final. Ellie Downie, Becky Downie, Ruby Harrold, Claudia Fragapane and Amy Tinkler were fourth after qualification with an overall score of 174.064, with gymnastic powerhouses in China and Russia ahead of them, as well as the USA who look untouchable at the top.

In the pool Siobhan Marie-O'Conner goes into the final of the 200m individual medley ranked second after storming to a British record, and becoming only the second woman ever to swim the event in under 2:08. Britain's men will also be looking to replicate their 2015 World Championship upset in the 4x200m freestyle relay where they stole gold from the USA on the final leg; the USA will not want to be beaten in Rio.

Two-time Olympic medallist David Florence qualified with near perfect form for the C1 final today. He placed third overall in qualification and will being looking to continue his medal winning ways.

The eventing reaches its showjumping climax with the individual and team final.  William Fox-Pitt has had an excellent start with horse Chilli Morning, but goes into the today's final 11th place after slipping down the ranking in the cross-country phase yesterday. In the team event, Britain are currently lying in fourth.

It's into quarter and semi-final stages in rowing after day 2's postponement. After a strong start Alan Campbell goes in the quarter finals of the men's single, while those crews in semi-finals today include Katherine Grainger and Vicky Thornley in the double sculls and the men's lightweight four comprising of Chris Bartley, Mark Aldred, Jono Clegg and Pete Chambers.

Giles Scott, winner of two Rio test events and the past three Finn world titles, is one to watch in the fin class race 1 and 2 today. And the men’s rugby sevens competition gets underway with Britain playing Kenya and Japan today, while in men’s hockey Britain play hosts Brazil.
