Team GB events Thursday 11th August

Yesterday there was a flurry of medals for Team GB as Joe Clarke (Kayaker) and diving duo Jack Laugher and Chris Mears became Olympic champions. Well done to all! But there was also the first Olympic medal in the men’s all-around gymnastics last night with a Bronze medal for Max Whitlock. And now tonight it’s the women’s turn to dazzle in their all-around final (20:00BST).

Also winning Bronze medals was Steven Scott (shooting), Sally Conway (Judo) and Chris Froome (Road Race). Later today it’s over to the indoor cycling for the final of the Men’s Team Sprint (22:21).

Gemma Gibbons will be looking to better her silver medal from 2012 in Judo today, starting at 14:00 but the medal contests are from 20:26. Katherine Grainger is hoping to match her Gold medal from 2012 with new partner Victoria Thornley. Victoria was in the women’s eight at 2012 but finished 5th.

In other news, it’s been discovered that the chief medical officer for Team USA at Rio 2016 is a chiropractor. William Moreau, DC, says “Chiropractic plays an important role in preventive, maintenance or injury specific care, and contributes to enhanced clinical outcomes and high patient satisfaction levels among all athletes.” This is highlighting the importance of chiropractic care to the top athletes to help them perform to the optimum and remaining injury free.
