Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow kept their cool to clinch 10m synchro diving bronze as Great Britain added two more medals on day three of the Rio Games.
The pair produced a great final dive to overtake Germany, as Team GB’s pin-up Daley won his second Olympic bronze.
Earlier, Ed Ling finally won an Olympic medal on his third attempt as he took bronze in the men’s trap shooting.
Fortune was not shining for Team GB in the eventing, with William Fox-Pitt slipping out of medal contention going into the final showjumping round.
It was day when some stuttered and others held their nerves:
- Unbeaten women’s pair through – Rowers Heather Glover and Heather Stanning nearly had their six-year unbeaten run broken by Denmark but a strong finish saw them through to the semi-finals as heat winners
- Barnes suffers shock defeat – There will be no third successive boxing gold for Ireland’s Paddy Barnes who lost his light-flyweight bout against Spain’s Samuel Carmona
Australian cyclist crashes in training
Only a day after Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten suffered a horrific crash in the women’s road race, a track cyclist was taken to hospital after an accident in training.
Australia’s Melissa Hoskins was taking part in team pursuit practice when the crash happened involving three of her team-mates.
Ashlee Ankudinoff, Georgia Baker, Amy Cure came off their bikes, as did Hoskins who was carried off the track on a stretcher and then taken to hospital as a precaution.
The team pursuit competition begins with qualifying on Thursday.
Tickets sold, but where are the public?
Almost 80% of available tickets have been sold, but the TV cameras are showing empty seats at the arenas – why is that the case?
Organisers have put up billboards of Jamaican sprinting superstar Usain Bolt urging Brazilians to buy tickets inside some arenas.
Rio 2016 chiefs say they are cracking down on tickets touts with around 40 detained inside the Olympic Park on Monday.
In other Rio Olympic news
Investigations finally got to the bottom of how a stray bullet found its way through the roof and into the media work room at the equestrian venue on day one.
Mario Andrada, the chief spokesman for Rio 2016’s organising committee, said a shot had been fired at a police blimp from one of the Brazilian city’s favelas.
He said that the intended target was a security camera on the blimp.
Meanwhile, Namibian boxer Jonas Junius was arrested by Brazilian police on suspicion of attempting to sexually assault a maid at the Olympic village.
The 22-year-old is competing in the light-welterweight division.
Over at the tennis competition, play had to be briefly stopped when a man in an Argentina shirt started fighting another spectator during Argentine Juan Martin del Potro’s victory over Portugal’s Joao Sousa at Olympic Park.
“The crowd always makes a special atmosphere,” said Del Potro, who beat world number one Novak Djokovic on Sunday.
“It was beautiful apart from the incident in the beginning. I hope that will not happen again because people need to enjoy the matches and we need to have peace between Argentina and Brazil. This is not football. After that there was a lot of respect so we could enjoy.”
