Athletics
7.30 Men's 800m semi-finals
8.00 Women's 3,000m final
Scotland's European 3,000m champion Yvonne Murray won bronze at the last Olympics but finished disappointingly out of the medals in the world championships. She will be hoping to make amends tonight. The last two women's Olympic 3,000m have both had their dramas - in 1984, a tearful Mary Decker claimed Zola Budd had tripped her up in the final, and in 1988, a sobbing Lim Chun-ae, the South Korean record holder and final bearer of the Olympic torch, came last in her qualifying heat. It emerged later that her coach used to beat her, once breaking her eardrum, for not training well enough.
Also tonight, Tom McKean runs for a place in the 800m final, and the men's high jump comes to a close. Britain's Dalton Grant finished seventh in Seoul behind gold medallist Gennady Avdeyenko.

Desmond Lynam presents the sporting highlights of a day which held much promise for Britain. On the track, 3,000m runner Yvonne Murray was aiming to become Britain's first female gold medallist in a distance event. On the water, Richard Fox was among the slalom canoeing favourites, and Barrie Edgington and Penny
Way held high hopes of victory in the closing races of the men's and women's boardsailing. Britain's Karen Briggs was fighting for an Olympic gold to add to her already large collection of world judo titles: France's world champion Cecile Nowak is her chief rival in the extra-lightweight division. Plus the main medal news, an update on the yachting, and action from the men's gymnastics apparatus finals.
