The Daily Brit: Day Nine



Caught your breath after Super Saturday? No? Tough. Let's do it all again. Day Nine is underway!

Graham Terris

Sufficient Saturday?

Andrew Corcoran

Settle-for-that Saturday, maybe?

GUARANTEED MEDALS TODAY SILVER - Nick Dempsey, RS:X (from 1700 BST) SILVER (at least) - Andy Murray, men's singles final (from 1930 BST) GOLD & SILVER - Jason Kenny & Callum Skinner, men's sprint final (from 2104 BST)

GOLF Danny Willett tees off on the final day of the Olympic golf tournament. He's 9 strokes behind leader Justin Rose so needs the round of his life (and others to have rounds of hell) to get amongst the medals... but you never know!

TABLE TENNIS Men's Team Quarter Final: GBR 0-1 CHN Yes, the crazy-format men's team event is back underway! Liam Pitchord put up a good fight against Lang Ma, but the Chineseman finds late form to take the first match 3-1. Xu Xin & Paul Drinkhall do battle next.

TABLE TENNIS Men's Team Quarter Final: GBR 0-2 CHN 3-1 to Xu Xin over Paul Drinkhall and China just need one more match win to advance to the semi finals. Doubles up next.

BADMINTON Rajiv Ouseph is through to the quarter finals, beaten Japan's Sho Sasaki 21-15, 21-9!

GOLF Two birdies so far for Rose, two birdies so far for Stenson. Both on -2 for the day thru 3 holes, the Brit still with the one shot lead. This final round is shaping up to be rather tasty!

TABLE TENNIS Men's Team Quarter Final: GBR 0-3 CHN Ah, not to be for our plucky Brits against the best in the world, but they didn't go down without a fight! Let's be honest, a win there would have been the shock of the Olympics, so let's not worry too much.

GOLF Justin Rose bogeys the 7th, Stenson pars it so they are tied for gold on -14.

GYMNASTICS The floor final is underway, and Max Whitlock performs an impressive routine to score 15.633 to go into 1st place. 5 gymnasts (including Kristian Thomas) still to go.
