Team GB events Sunday 14th August

In 2012, yesterday was named Super Saturday, and this time, it certainly rivalled scenes in London. Mo Farah and the women’s team pursuit won gold on Saturday, the women breaking the world record in style. Also in the cycling, Bucky Jones grabbed silver as there was a photo-finish on the line.

Jessica Ennis-Hill won an emotional silver as she hinted at retirement after these games. Greg Rutherford had a poor day in the long jump with fouls in the preliminary rounds, and couldn’t produce the performance to take gold. He had to settle with a bronze medal.

There was a gold for the men and silver for the women in the rowing eights – the women making history. Well done all.

The golf enters its final day today with the gold medal up for grabs. But will Justin Rose be able to claim the gold after his hole-in-one? Or with Henrik Stenson (Sweden) be able to do enough to leap frog Justin to become Olympic champion?

Andy Murray is in the final of the tennis singles against Del Potro, but he missed out on the mixed doubles final with Heather Watson. Can Andy retain is gold medal from 2012? The men’s singles is from 19:00.

It’s all eyes on Max Whitlock again as he is in the men’s floor final and the pommel horse final in gymnastics (18:00). He has already won bronze in the men’s all-round final but can he make it two medals?

Finally, Jason Kenny and Callum skinner are in the men’s sprint final in the velodrome this evening, so Team GB are guaranteed gold and silver.  The final starts at 21:00.
