We’re halfway through Rio 2016 but in many sports, the action is just getting started
Gotta catch ‘em all: Bolt’s Pokemon Go(ld) begins with 100m
From the Sambadrome to the Sugarloaf: Rio’s marvellous marathon
The ultimate in iconic athletic events will feature the medallists from last year’s world championship: Ethiopian Mare Dibaba, Kenya’s Helah Kiprop and Bahrain’s Eunice Kirwa, as well as Estonia’s Luik triplets, Leila, Liina and Lily all lining up in the women’s marathon.
The triple jump will also be contested, with Colombia’s London 2012 silver medallist Caterine Ibarguen considered the favourite.
Golf's final day, with Rose hoping to be pick of the bunch
Great Britain’s Justin Rose already has the honour of the first-ever Olympic hole-in-one and could be set to take the first title in 112 years if he maintains his lead on the final day of the event. Swede Henrik Stenson is close behind, however, and could well be a thorn in the Englishman's side.
Brits on track for more precious metal in cycling
The British are famously successful in ‘sitting-down sports’, and Rio 2016 has been no exception. Team GB are guaranteed gold and silver in the men’s sprint, where Jason Kenny will face team-mate Callum Skinner. Both took gold earlier in the week as part of the men’s sprint team.
Legends to feature in final day of tennis
The Rio 2016 tennis competition has seen it all so far, and the closing day does not look likely to disappoint. Reigning champion and world no.2 Andy Murray will meet Juan Martin del Potro in the men's singles, while Switzerland's Martina Hingis, 12-time doubles major winner and current world no.1, will play Russian pair Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina with partner Timea Bacsinszky.
The mixed doubles will see another legend of the court, four-time Olympic gold medal-winner Venus Williams and partner Rajeev Ram take on compatriots Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Jack Sock.
Artistic alchemists turn to apparatus for more gold
Individual all-around champions Kohei Uchimura of Japan and Simone Biles of the USA aim to add more gold to their burgeoning Olympic medal collections, but they face several rivals on the first day of artistic gymnastics apparatus finals at the Rio Olympic Arena on Sunday. Biles will face Russia's Maria Paseka, who upset her at the 2015 world championships, as well as her own team-mates on the vault and bars, while Britons Louis Smith and Max Whitlock join Alex Naddour of the USA and Ukrainian Oleg Verniaiev in challenging Uchimura in the pommel horse and floor events.
Will European épée duopoly end today?
Fencing at Rio 2016 comes to close with the men’s épée team final. Though not contested at London 2012, France and Italy are the dominant nations, with France winning the last two competitions (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008), after Italy won at Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000. Both are expected to feature prominently in Rio, though the Republic of Korea will look to their individual event gold medallist Park Sangyoung for inspiration.
Party time at the Olympic Boulevard
Every night brings something different to the Olympic Boulevard's three stages, but Sunday will be a special one for fans of electronic music. 'Nocturna' is a performance hosted by Brazilian DJ Rodrigo Penna, running from 6.00pm to midnight, made for dancing, for entertainment, for sharing and the discovery of delights the night has in store. Wherever you want to go, Rodrigo will take you there, passing through a range of musical styles, genres and eras.
