7.15Women's 100m hurdles final
Britain's Kriss Akabusi used to be a useful 400m runner and the backbone of the 4 x 400m relay squad. But then, in 1986, he changed to the 400m hurdles and made an almost instant impact by reaching the world championship final the following year. He came sixth at the Seoul Olympics and has since won European and Commonwealth gold medals and a world championship bronze. Could Akabusi surpass even this by claiming Britain's first Olympic gold in the men's 400m hurdles since David
Hemery demolished the field with a world-record-breaking run at the Mexico City Games 24 years ago? World champion Samuel Matete , from Zambia, is looking to become only the second African to win this event, and Americans
Dave Patrick and Kevin Young will, of course, have other ideas. Later in the evening, the Unified Team's
Lyudmila Narozhilenko starts as clear favourite in the women's sprint hurdles, and the long jump final, set to be an all-American duel between world record-holder
Mike Powell and double
Olympic gold medallist Carl Lewis , draws to a close.
Plus more action from the boxing semi-finals. With commentary by Harry Carpenter. 0 KRISS AKABUSI 'S KIND OF DAY: page 90

Soldiering On starring Stephanie Cole
A stockbroker's widow finds life stripping her of most of her assets, including her memories. "She may seem tragic to an onlooker, but she's not tragic to herself because she closes her eyes to anything uncomfortable or unacceptable," was
Stephanie Cole 's impression of the stoical woman she portrays. In an interview with Radio
Times in 1988 when the monologue was first broadcast, she said she admired the stiff upper lip of her character, but admitted, "I'm nothing like her
- in fact, I'm the opposite. I suspect she's an unthinking Thatcherite, whereas I veer towards the Green."
