Dina Asher-Smith bids to become the first British woman to win an individual sprint gold but she is up against it after Friday’s heats. Asher-Smith eased through the opening round in a time of 11.07 seconds behind American Teahna Daniels but she will have to significantly step on the gas in order to get close to favourite Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica.

Britain has high hopes from the Olympic regatta after a strong start across the fleet. Windsurfer Emma Wilson is the first to have guaranteed a place on the podium after an impressive preliminary campaign. She goes in the double-points medal race to determine her precise place on the podium.

Shooting

Having disappointed in her opening event of the Games, world number one Seonaid McIntosh starts as favourite in the women’s 3x50m rifle. Fresh from his individual bronze medal, Matt Coward-Holley stands a chance of reaching the podium again as he teams up with Kirsty Hegarty in the mixed event.

Boxing

Victory for reigning women’s world middleweight champion Lauren Price will earn her a place in the semi-finals and at the very least a guaranteed bronze. Meanwhile rising featherweight star Karriss Artingstall can go one better and book her place in the final if she overcomes home favourite Sena Irie.
