LONDON 2012: Olympics Watch – Monday 29th July

The first Monday of the London 2012 Games introduces one of Great Britain’s key protagonists for Olympic glory.

Tom Daley dives for a medal with partner Pete Waterfield in the men’s 10m platform synchro event in the Aquatics Centre, starting at 3pm on BBC One.

Zara Phillips and her GB eventing team-mates will be in action during the sport’s dramatic cross-country stage in Greenwich Park throughout Monday afternoon, then Britain’s men’s gymnasts will go for a team medal, after making the final of this event for the first time in 88 years, from 4.30pm.

Kath Grainger, the rower who has won three consecutive Olympic silver medals, begins what looks to be a strong bid for gold at last alongside Anna Watkins at Eton Dorney. Their double sculls heats are from 10:20.

In the pool, Michael Phelps has dropped out of the men’s 200m freestyle so Ryan Lochte will look for the win, while Gemma Spofforth and Liam Tancock will hope to have made backstroke finals for Team GB. Swimming coverage begins at 19:00.

In the weightlifting competition, Team GB’s 18-year-old Zoe Smith will compete for a place in the final of the 58kg category at lunchtime. If she progresses, she will return later in the afternoon to fight for a medal.

Britain’s men’s hockey team faces Argentina at 19:00 at the Riverbank Arena, which you can follow on BBC Three alongside basketball and volleyball.

GB teams in action include women’s Basketball (v Canada, 8.30pm), women’s Handball (v Russia, 2.30pm), men’s hockey (v Argentina, 7pm), women’s volleyball (v Algeria, 10pm), and women’s water polo (v Russia, 6.20pm).

Twelve gold medals will be won on day three of the Games.
