Ones to watch on day eleven of the Olympic Games

Great Britain could score a hat-trick of cycling Golds in the Velodrome and there's home interest in the triple jump, triathlon, sailing and canoe too.

CYCLING: Sir Chris Hoy

  • Keirin first round at 10:00, second round at 16:34, final at 17:57
  • Velodrome

On a day when Victoria Pendleton is set to retire, Hoy will bid for a sixth Olympic gold and seventh in all, both British records. The 36-year-old is world champion in the keirin, an event which to many is something of a lottery but appears almost a formality for the Scot.

  • Women's sprint semi final at 16:00, final at 17:26
  • Velodrome

Pendleton looks to defend her Beijing Gold in her last Olympic race before she retires. The Bedfordshire superstar already has one 2012 Gold from the keirin.

CYCLING: Laura Trott

  • Individual pursuit at 10:19, scratch race at 16:07, 500m time trial at 16:53
  • Velodrome

Laura Trott, currently joint top of the omnium standings, hopes to finish the job in the final three events of the competition.

TRIATHLON: Alistair Brownlee

  • Hyde Park

The 24-year-old Yorkshireman is the reigning world champion and the hot favourite for gold in Hyde Park, while his nearest rival could be his younger brother Jonny.

TRIPLE JUMP: Phillips Idowu

  • Qualifying begins 10:45
  • Olympic Stadium

The saga of Beijing silver medallist Idowu's fitness and whereabouts has been fascinating or irritating depending on your point of view, but the so-called 'Invisible Man' will have no place to hide in triple jump qualifying.

SAILING: Nick Dempsey

  • RS:X medal race at 13:00
  • Weymouth and Portland

The Athens 2004 bronze medallist hopes to go one better on home waters tomorrow in the men's RS:X class. Dempsey sits second overall and cannot make gold so will be looking to keep rivals Toni Wilhelm and Przemyslaw Miarczynski at bay.

CANOE SPRINT: Rachel Cawthorn
