DIVING: MEN'S 10M PLATFORM

  • Friday, Aquatics Centre (18:55pm - 22:45pm)

Teenager Tom Daley returns to action to resume his battle with world platform champion Qiu Bo and continue his quest for a first Olympic gold medal. Daley, contesting preliminary rounds on Friday, famously beat Bo to win the world crown in 2009 but the Chinese has had the upper hand since.

ATHLETICS: WOMEN'S 1500M FINAL

  • Friday, Olympic Stadium (20:55pm)

A matter of months after being diagnosed with potentially life-threatening blood clots on her lungs, a rejuvenated Lisa Dobriskey will bid to cap an extraordinary comeback by winning a medal in the 1,500 metres. Briton Laura Weightman is also competing.

BOXING: MEN'S HEAVYWEIGHT (91KG)

  • Friday, ExCeL Arena (15:30pm)

Anthony Joshua will book his place in the super-heavyweight boxing final if he can chop down 6ft 9ins Kazakh Ivan Dychko at the ExCeL Arena. Joshua's hard-punching last-eight win over China's Zhilei Zhang makes him favourite.

BMX: WOMEN'S SEMI-FINALS

  • Friday, BMX Track, Olympic Stadium (15:00pm)

Shanaze Reade qualified fifth fastest for the BMX semi-finals on Thursday, as she prepared to put her Olympic heartbreak firmly in the past. Three-time world champion Reade crashed out at the final corner attempting a gold-medal-or-bust manoeuvre in Beijing four years ago.

SAILING: MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SAILING

  • Friday, Weymouth and Portland (11:45am - 18:20pm)

Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are all but guaranteed to win at least silver on Friday and gold will be theirs if they finish the medal race ahead of New Zealand's Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie. British pair Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell will compete in their 470 medal race at midday, which they are mathematically assured of a medal in.

TAEKWONDO: MEN'S AND WOMEN'S UNDER -80KG AND UNDER 67KG

  • Friday, ExCeL Arena (08:55am - 23:25pm)

Sarah Stevenson won world championship gold last year but tragically lost both parents, and then recovered from a serious knee injury to make London 2012. The 2008 Beijing bronze medallist insists there can be no sentiment in her bid for Olympic glory. Lutalo Muhammad, meanwhile, will be out to show just why he was controversially selected ahead of world number one Aaron Cook.
