All eyes will be on the Olympic Stadium tonight as Dai Greene bids for glory in the final of the 400 metres hurdles.
But the Welshman will have it all to do if he’s to add the Olympic crown to his Commonwealth and World titles after a disappointing display in Saturday’s semi-final. Greene trailed in fourth in that race, but will be boosted by the news that he’s been drawn in lane three for the final, which takes place this evening.
The Llanelli athlete looks set to have his work cut out, though - only qualifying eighth fastest despite producing a quicker time than he’d done to win the World title in South Korea last year.
2004 Olympic Champion Felix Sanchez qualified fastest in 47.76 seconds - the best time in the world this year – in front of Puerto Rico’s Javier Culson, who ran 47.93.
And there’s an important game for Merthyr’s Sarah Thomas and the women's hockey team, who will want to beat the Netherlands in their final group A match to guarantee their place in Wednesday’s semi-final. The game gets underway at the Riverbank Arena at 7pm.
Brett Morse crashed out in discus qualifying this morning, registering only one legal throw of just 58.18m, way down on his season's best of 64.35m.
He described his performance as "very disappointing".
"I think I just rushed the finish, I was a little excited maybe, I don't know" he added.
Gareth Warburton, who won selection on appeal after initially being left out of the Olympic team, also went out, finishing fifth in his 800m heat in 1:46.97.
