Team GB events Thursday 18th August

There was no medals for Team GB yesterday, but Team GB Women’s Hockey have secured their place in the gold medal match after beating New Zealand 3-0 last night (sorry Dr Glenn). They play the Netherlands on Friday (21:00).

The Women’s golf began yesterday, with Team GB’s Charlie Hull only three shots of the lead. The golf continues today from 11:30

Looking at today, Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are set to officially win their Gold medal. This is only confirmed after the final race has been completed, which should have been yesterday. Due to weather conditions, it was postponed until today. Well done ladies.

Jon Schofield and Liam Heath are competing in the Double Canoe Sprint 200m at 13:40. Meanwhile in the Badminton, theres a potential bronze medal for Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis, starting at 14:10.

Nicola Adams is back defending her 2012 Olympic medal in the boxing later today. The semi-final starts at 18:00. Will she be fighting for Gold or Bronze? Let’s hope its Gold! Also in action today defending her 2012 title is Jade Jones in Taekwondo. Her first round is at 14:30 with the subsequent rounds throughout the day.

The Brownlee Brothers are fighting it out once again in the Triathlon which starts at 15:00. Alistair won Gold in London with his younger brother Jonathon winning Bronze. Will it be the same today, or can Jonathon reign supreme over his brother?

Overall, Team GB are set to break the London 2012 record in the medals table. Currently on 50 (compared to 47 at this time at 2012), won a total of 65 in London. With plenty of medal winning athletes competing today, can we build the momentum needed to smash London’s record breaking tally?

  • Jon Schofield and Liam Heath – Canoe – 13:40
  • Tonia Couch – Diving – Semi-final 14:00, Final 20:00
  • Team GB – Modern Pentathlon Fencing – (Women) 14:00 and (Men) 18:30
