    All 4 sailing events could medal - 2 are guaranteed, the other 2 sit 2nd and 5th.

    Gymnastics Parallel Bars - Joe Fraser was the bronze medalist at the last WC, so definitely has a shot as well.

    Unsurprising about not remembering the men. Our biggest successes go back to the handlebar moustache era.

    Me too although not convinced it was.

    What I liked about it was that the team clearly was willing to push it as high as they could, not just sneak a measly bronze. Didn’t come off for Sarah Davies earlier, did for Emily. Definitely a programme that needs to be financed now. Sadly our men are hopeless, though.

    Hoping the speed variation was a deliberate dial-back of the pace.

    The women team pursuit is an excellent indicator of form, because it contains within it two other medals - the omnium & the madison - so we’re looking at three very decent gold chances there.

    6th in the medal table. Would at least be nice to overtake dodgy Russia

    Today's medals mean we've passed Sydney 2000 and are up to our 7th best showing (by Gold total) and our 8th best by total medal tally. And that's not counting the 6 guaranteed medals that we have already lined up of one colour or another.

    Clearly we'll never catch London 1908. And, barring the most absurd sequence of events, Rio and London 2012 are probably out of the question now. But Beijing (our 4th best ever Games) is definitely within reach. Definitely in terms of total medals (51); maybe slightly less so in Golds (19).

    Whatever happens between now and Sunday, even if we were to win no more medals at all, I still think we can look at these Games as being overall successful ones for GBR.

    It does strike me that with a limited pot of cash to go around events like BMX and weightlifting may be eyeing UKA's longingly

    Well that was a nice addition. I am no expert on weightlifting but on looking at the figures I thought Campbell was a fifty/fifty chance for a bronze...silver behind the unbeatable Chinese was a great result. First British woman to win a weightlifting medal : and I can't recall much success ever for the men...

    Winning medals in all sorts of events : really time for Athletics to join the party , eh ?

    You know the people who run sport in this country cannot see a bandwagon without jumping aboard.
