DIVING: MEN'S SYNCHRONISED 10m PLATFORM

  • Monday, 2:55pm at the Aquatics Centre

Tom Daley makes his first appearance at these Olympic Games alongside Pete Waterfield in the 10-metre platform synchro. Britain's poster boy will bid to add an Olympic medal to his already decorated career in one of the few diving events where China are vulnerable.

Waterfield won silver in the event at Athens 2004. He and Daley also face stiff competition from Germany, Russia, Mexico and Ukraine.

SWIMMING: MEN'S 100m BACKSTROKE

Liam Tancock has the difficult task of carrying over the form which has brought him the 50 metres backstroke world record and world title to the 100m at the Aquatics Centre. The Exeter-born swimmer is relentlessly positive and a can-do attitude could propel him to the podium.
