CANOE SLALOM: WOMEN'S KAYAK (K1)

  • Thursday; 2.15pm, Lee Valley White Water Centre

Richard Hounslow and David Florence pair up in the men's double canoe slalom, as do Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott. Florence, 29, will be hoping to do better after he crashed out of the individual event. Perhaps Britain's best chance of a medal comes from Lizzie Neave. The 25-year-old, from Stone in Staffordshire, goes in the women's single kayak.

ROWING: MEN'S LIGHTWEIGHT FOUR

  • Thursday; 9.50am, Eton Dorney

Richard Chambers, Peter Chambers, Rob Williams, Chris Bartley, the lightweight men's four are Great Britain's leading gold medal hopes on day two of the finals at Eton Dorney. They won gold at the third World Cup regatta and have followed that up with two strong performances so far. Denmark are likely to be their chief rivals.

CYCLING: MEN'S TEAM SPRINT

  • Thursday; 4.15pm, Velodrome

With Jason Kenny and Sir Chris Hoy behind him, Philip Hindes must deliver if Britain are to successfully defend their title.

TENNIS: MEN'S QUARTER FINALS

  • Thursday, 11.30am, Wimbledon

A place in the semi-finals is at stake and Andy Murray will fancy his chances against Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, a player more at home on clay than on the Wimbledon grass. The Scot will also play in a mixed-doubles first round match with Laura Robson against Czech pair Lucie Hradecka and Radek Stepanek.

SWIMMING: WOMEN'S 800m FREESTYLE

  • Thursday; 10.20am, Aquatics Centre

Rebecca Adlington starts the defence of her 800 metres freestyle. The 23-year-old has already won bronze in the 400m but the longer race is her favoured event and she is desperate to retain her crown in what could be the last ever 800m for women. There are proposals to even the length of the swimming competitions so men and women have equal parity and both swim the 1,500m.

EQUESTRIAN: TEAM DRESSAGE

  • Thursday; 8.55am, Greenwich Park

Carl Hester on Uthopia will launch Team GB's bid at around 11.55am, for a dressage team medal at Greenwich Park. The 45-year-old is in his fourth Olympics, but never has he arrived at a Games with a team holding the tag of gold medal favourites, which is exactly what GB's reigning European champions are.
