Could a Super Saturday be on the cards for Team GB?
Her, the PA news agency takes a look at what we can expect from Saturday’s action at the Olympic Games in Tokyo
Dina Asher-Smith bids to become the first Britisk woman to win an individual sprint gold but she is up against it after Friday’s heats. Asher-Smith eased through the opening round in a time of 11.07 seconds behind American Teahna Daniels but she will have to significantly step on the gas in order to get close to favourite Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica.
Fresh from his 100m breaststroke triumph, Adam Peaty returns to the pool for his shot at a second medal in the mixed 100m relay – the sole British medal hope on the penultimate day of action in the pool.
Individual silver medallists Alex Yee and Georgia Taylor-Brown combine to give Team GB a strong chance of claiming another medal in the mixed team relay in the early morning in Tokyo.
Britain has high hopes from the Olympic regatta after a strong start across the fleet. Windsurfer Emma Wilson is the first to have guaranteed a place on the podium after an impressive preliminary campaign. She goes in the double-points medal race to determine her precise place on the podium.
Having disappointed in her opening event of the Games, world number one Seonaid McIntosh starts as favourite in the women’s 3x50m rifle. Fresh from his individual bronze medal, Matt Coward-Holley stands a chance of reaching the podium again as he teams up with Kirsty Hegarty in the mixed event.
Victory for reigning women’s world middleweight champion Lauren Price will earn her a place in the semi-finals and at the very least a guaranteed bronze. Meanwhile rising featherweight star Karriss Artingstall can go one better and book her place in the final if she overcomes home favourite Sena Irie.
