okyo Olympics 2021 – LIVE!

Team GB are sixth on the medals table with ten gold, ten silver and 12 bronze for a total of 32.

On Sunday Charlotte Worthington sensationally won gold in the inaugural women’s BMX park freestyle final while gymnast Max Whitlock also bagged top honours in the men’s pommel horse final.

GB also claimed silver in the 4x100m men’s medley relay to cap their best ever Games in the pool with eight medals. It was the second gold in Tokyo for Adam Peaty.

There is the chance for more glory as the equestrian eventers are looking good in both the team and individual categories.

World No 1 Oliver Townend and his teammates Laura Collett and Tom McEwen hold a huge lead of 17.9 penalties in the team event. Townend also heads the individual race for gold on 23.60, with a narrow advantage over Germany’s Julia Krajewski. Collett occupies the bronze medal position and McEwen is sixth.

Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey have an outside chance of a women’s 49er FX sailing race.

Weightlifter Emily Campbell is also in action in the women’s +87kg category. One of her competitors will be New Zealand’s Laurel Hubbard, the first transgender athlete to compete in the Games. That begins at 11:50am.

Other highlights of Day Ten include the medal events in the women’s 100m hurdles, the men’s 3,000m steeplechase and the women’s team sprint in the velodrome.

Tsimanouskaya ‘taken to airport against her wishes’

Belarusian sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya called on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Sunday to get involved in her case after saying she had been removed from the national team and taken to Tokyo airport against her wishes over her criticism of national coaches.

“I am asking the International Olympic Committee for help,” Tsimanouskaya said in the video, posted on the Telegram channel of the Belarusian Sport Solidarity Foundation, a group that supports athletes jailed or sidelined for their political views.

“There is pressure against me. They are trying to get me out of the country without my permission. I am asking the IOC to get involved.”

I’m not sure it’s possible for the jump events to have sold themselves better to a global audience than tonight. Often at the Diamond League events, athletes complain they can be second-class citizens.

But with the spotlight on them, they delivered some great drama. Rojas’ win was never in doubt but still incredibly impressive while Barshim and Tamberi agreed to share the gold, both of them celebrating after recovering from respective career-threatening injuries.

Now time for the 100m boys to deliver…

Heather Knight accepts Pakistan tour withdrawal but hopes England Women can visit in future

E

ngland captain Heather Knight suggests the controversial decision to pull out of the prepared tour of Pakistan was “taken out of our hands” and insists it is critical for women’s cricket that they pay a visit to the state in the long run.

England’s ladies were because of to tour Pakistan for the initially time ever as aspect of a joint white-ball tour with the men’s staff, who were returning for the first time since 2005.

Even so, after New Zealand withdrew their men’s workforce from their tour of Pakistan very last 7 days due to a “credible threat”, the ECB announced on Monday that it too was pulling the plug.

That has drawn fierce criticism from Pakistan, who are confident they can give a protected experience for going to teams.

Knight insisted verdicts on the viability of a tour are not for players, or even captains, to take care of and defended the ECB’s ideal to make the phone.

Talking immediately after her side’s a few-wicket defeat to New Zealand at Leicester, she reported: “We found yesterday that the board experienced built the final decision for us not to go and it’s higher than our heads a minimal bit.

“I feel the the dialogue and the communication between the board and PCA (experienced cricketers’ association) is a robust a person, and it was a tough situation with what experienced gone on with New Zealand.

“I feel using it out of our palms is most likely the right issue to do and, and that was finished with a perspective to consider and glimpse soon after the gamers.

“It’s for the persons higher than us to make people selections and for us to to get on with them and take wherever they are.

“Hopefully, someday in the potential we’ll be able to go. I do consider it is significant for them, notably in women’s cricket with what is going on in the location.”
