Rio 2016 Olympics: Day 11 TV Guide


Giles Scott, Laura Trott, Simone Biles, Jack Laugher are just some of the Olympians bidding for gold on day 11 in Rio with comprehensive coverage of all the action across BBC TV, Red Button and Online.

Day 10 may not have ended with the same level of British success that came on ‘Sensational Sunday’, but there was still plenty for Team GB to cheer, with Charlotte Dujardin becoming the second British woman to win three Olympic golds by retaining her individual dressage title, and British fans can expect more medal success today.

TRACK CYCLING: The final day of track cycling promises plenty with gold medals on the line in men’s keirin, the women’s omnium and women’s sprint.

Britain’s three-time Olympic champion Laura Trott is the big name to watch in the omnium and she leads the event comfortably after the first day.

Jason Kenny and Callum Skinner are in the men’s keirin while Becky James and Katy Marchant go in the women’s sprint.

SAILING: The hard work has already been done by Great Britain’s sailor Giles Scott who should cruise to a gold medal today.

Team GB have dominated the finn event in sailing since the 2000 Olympics and Scott, the heir to London 2012 winner Sir Ben Ainslie, is primed to be the latest gold medallist.

He is so far ahead after six races that the final one is expected to be a formality before Scott can join GB’s raft of medal winners in Brazil.

ATHLETICS: London 2012 bronze medallist Robbie Grabarz and European bronze medallist Chris Baker are Great Britain’s entrants in the men’s high jump, the final of which takes place from 00:30.

Andrew Pozzi is Britain’s fastest 110m hurdler this year, with the final (02:45) missing both Olympic champion Aries Merritt and world champion David Oliver.

Laura Muir, fifth at last year’s world championships, is the fastest female 1500m runner outside Kenya and Ethiopia so far this year (02:30).

GYMNASTICS: Artistic gymnastics concludes from 18:00 with the women’s floor, men’s parallel bars and men’s high bar.

The floor event looks set to be another chance for America’s Simone Biles to assert her dominance after already winning three golds and a bronze in Rio, while the men’s high bar is the traditional domain of flamboyant Dutchman Epke Zonderland – whose London 2012 routine was a highlight of the Games. Zonderland has won two out of three world titles since.

BADMINTON: Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis are the first Britons to reach an Olympic badminton semi-final since 2004 and today the British pair, 22nd in the world, face China’s Fu Haifeng and Zhang Nan.

Should they pull off an unlikely victory, Langridge and Ellis would emulate the success of mixed doubles pairing Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms, who won silver in Athens 12 years ago.

DIVING: Jack Laugher, who won Britain’s first diving gold with Chris Mears in the 3m synchronised event earlier in the Games, aims for another medal in the individual version.

Elsewhere, Jack Burnell, who was just five seconds off a bronze medal at last year’s world championships, swims the 10km open water swimming race from 13:00, boxer Joshua Buatsi is the semi-finals of the light-heavyweight competition, while the women’s football is also down to the final four, with defending champions USA already out, the gold will go to Brazil, Sweden, Germany and Canada.

You can watch all the action from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Games across BBC TV, radio and online.

BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four and Red Button will have all the action covered, with multiple live streams available online, connected TVs, mobiles, tablets and the BBC Sport app.
