Swimming: James Guy goes for Gold



Here's the schedule for the next couple of hours:


A bit of a mini-final down the last 50m as Sjostrom and Ledecky test each other out. Sjostrom gets the touch, followed by Ledecky with Pellegrini in third.

The top 3 from that second semi-final go into the final as the 3 fastest times, followed by Shen in fourth. That should be a stormer of a final tomorrow night.

Up next is the men's 200m Freestyle Final, here's your line-up.

James Guy is out first, the British hope is world champion but didn't have a great qualifier and will go in lane 8. Down in the opposite end is Chad Le Clos, of 2012 fame.

In the middle lanes are American Conor Dwyer and Japanese swimmer Kosuke Hagino. Fastest qualifier is swimming's current villain Sun Yang. Could be anyone's race, this.

James Guy almost forced to swim his own race by being on the outside lane, whether that will help him or not we shall see.

We're off and it's fair to say Chad Le Clos is planning on storming this, he's out a full body length ahead of the rest of the field at the turn.

At the final turn Conor Dwyer and Sun Yang are fast tracking down Le Clos who surely can't hold this....

It's Sun Yang who takes the gold, an insane race from Chad Le Clos gets him silver and Dwyer just touches out James Guy for third.

Not sure Sun Yang is making any friends tonight, both arms in the air as he emerges from the pool. He tries to throw one of his caps into the stands but makes a complete mess of it and the hat ends up back in the water, much to the delight of the BBC commentators.
