The final of the men's 100m takes centre stage at the Olympic Stadium later today with Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake looking to take gold, while Andy Murray also looks to add to Team GB's medal tally.
The main contenders for Olympic gold all progressed to today’s three semi-final heats, scheduled for 19:45 BST, and now the likes of Blake, Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin and Asafa Powell are just one race away from getting the opportunity to take Bolt’s 100m title.
The Jamaican sprint sensation is also through to the semis though, and he will be determined to ensure that he is striking that all too familiar pose after tonight’s final, which is set for 21:50 BST.
And after seeing three British team-mates deliver an historic gold medal haul at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday, it is now the turn of Christine Ohuruogo to try to keep GB supporters on cloud nine. The crowd will be roaring her on when she defends the Women’s 400m title she won in Beijing four years ago, with the race scheduled for 21:10 BST.
It is also a big day over at Wimbledon as Britain’s Andy Murray goes in search of two Olympic gold medals. The British number one will be seeking revenge in the men’s singles final as he takes on world number one Roger Federer, who beat him in the Wimbledon men’s final just a few short weeks ago. That match is scheduled for 14:00 BST, and sometime after it has been completed Murray will partner Laura Robson to take on Max Mirnyi and Victoria Azarenka in the mixed doubles final at SW19.
Britain’s cycling dominance has even got actor Samuel L. Jackson talking on Twitter, and Ed Clancy will be looking to add another medal to the Team GB haul when he completes the men’s omnium with the individual pursuit (10:00 BST), scratch race (17:01 BST) and time trial (18:16 BST).
Sailing gold is also up for grabs on Day 9 as Ben Ainslie, bidding for a fourth Olympic gold medal, does battle with Jonas Hogh-Christiansen of Denmark in the Finn class at 14:00, while Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson compete in the Star class at 13:00 BST.
