Is teh Race Walking team closed or they're going to add more athletes?

 

Anyway, I'm happy por Derek but sad for Charlotte. I think she's the future of british marathon running, cause she's so young; not being part of the olympic team is a mistake by BA....

Well, Charlotte did not achieve the British qualification standard so her chances of going to Rio were very very small. The selectors have made it clear that any 3rd athlete must have achieved the GB selection standard, so athletes need to work towards tha.

 

the 20km race walking teams still have to be selected, their trials are in Leeds at the start of June.

There is a lot of nonsense being spoken about how GB is doing so far. How many likely medals have we actually missed? Jade Jones has been mentioned but she was up against an opponent who she has had p

Do you know how and when will Great Britain select the sailing crews in men's 470 and 49er? I just noticed that Luke Patience and Elliot Willis had been deselected to the team few months ago because of the Willis' ongoing battle with bowel cancer. He was replaced by Chris Grube.

I thought John Pink and Stuart Bithell for 49er. How did it happen?

Apparently not, according to the official Team GB site: https://www.teamgb.com/news/final-four-sailors-selected-to-team-gb-for-rio-2016

Yes. It's already been published on Team GB site. I just want to find out how did the British sailors select Fletcher and Sign over Pink and Bithell, who earned the quota place for Team GB at the Worlds two years ago.

Day 1 Finals

 

Archery - Men's Team

 

no British participation

 

Cycling - Men's Road Race

 

:GBR Steve Cummings

:GBR Chris Froome

:GBR Ian Stannard

:GBR Geraint Thomas

:GBR Adam Yates

 

The course is made for climbers apparently so Froome could have a chance if he does something. I wouldn't make predictions for this race though as anything can happen.

 

Fencing - Women's Individual Épée

 

no British participation

 

Judo - Women's -48kg

 

no British participation

 

Judo - Men's -60kg

 

:GBR Ashley McKenzie

 

Should beat Özlü :TUR in R32 but will then face the current world champion Smetov :KAZ in R16. Repechage is possible if Smetov makes it far.

 

Shooting - Women's 10m Air Rifle

 

:GBR Jennifer McIntosh

 

I don't know, a better finish than in London (36th) would be nice. No chance for a medal.

 

Shooting - Men's 10m Air Pistol

 

no British participation

 

Swimming - Women's 400m Individual Medley

 

:GBR Hannah Miley

:GBR Aimee Willmott

 

Both should make the final and Miley could go for silver if things to well. Husszu :HUN will be too strong.

 

Swimming - Women's 4x100m Freestyle Relay

 

no British participation

 

Swimming - Men's 400m Freestyle

 

:GBR James Guy

:GBR Stephen Milne

 

Milne should aim for a new PB and Guy is a medal contender if things go well. However, he will face strong competition such as Park :KOR, Sun :CHN, Horton :AUS, Detti :ITA, Cochrane :CAN and the Americans :USA. Just hope his swimming trunks sit tight. :lol:

 

Swimming - Men's 400m Individual Medley

 

:GBR Max Litchfield

 

Should qualify for the final.

 

Weightlifting - Women's -48kg

 

no British participation

Team GB medals after Day 1

 

Rank Gold Silver Bronze Total
--- 0 0 0 0

 

After a disappointing start no medals for GB on Day 1. The only highlight was Peaty's WR and McIntosh finished 15th which is very good. 21 places better than 4 years ago.
