I think by the end of the Games GB Athletics will look worse than the rowing as i think the amount of finals reached will likely be the lowest ever and leaving without medals is plausible.

Following Emma Wilson's windsurfing bronze GB is well in contention in six other classes after today's racing.

 

Men's Finn             1st after 8/10 races

"         470              2nd after 6/10

"         49er            2nd after 12/12

Women's 470        2nd after 6/10

"              49erFX   5th after 12/12

Mixed Nacra         2nd after 9/12

 

Although only 5th going into the women's 49erFX class medal race they can still potentially win any of the medals it is so close.

Laura Muir feels only possible individual medal GB is getting on the track with Dina in shit form.


 

 

GB Athletics is going to be in massive Shit and will get funding cut in a sport that is so hard to really improve from one games to another.

Kind of crazy given how amazing team GB was at the 2017 and 2019 worlds.

Helped doing well in the relays and Dina and KJT being in form which they are not. Plus in 2017 Mo Farah was still there.

And yet so far GB has qualified more athletes for track & field finals in events that have completed qualification than they did in 2016. And DNA isn't out of form she has issues with her hamstring.

 

You're very good at making claims of disaster before events actually take place.

The 800 women seem fantastic. I really hope one of them gets a medal. The other stand outs have been Netta and the men’s high jump and pole vault at least making their finals.

Gracenote have adjusted their predicted medal total for GB upwards from 52 to 62. Interesting because in the original 52 were two individual medals for Dina and several other week 2  medals that feel fairly unlikely. They now predict 16 golds instead of 14 as well.

Sailing latest.

 

Men's Finn              1st after 10/10

"         470               4th after 8/10

"         49er              2nd after 12/12

Women's 470          1st after 8/10

"               49erFX    5th after 12/12

Mixed Nacra           2nd after 12/12

 

Following Emma Wilson's windsurfing bronze GB were guaranteed two further medals in the Finn and Nacra classes today.

 

Giles Scott needs a top five finish in the ten boat medal race to guarantee gold. Wherever he finishes he'll get at least a bronze. In the Nacra catamaran the GB pair trail the leaders by 12 pts and lead the third placed boat by the same number of points. Likeliest outcomes a gold and a silver.

 

We go into the medal races for the 49er and 49erFX in 2nd and 5th respectively and both or neither could medal. Lots of boats still in with a chance and it's too close to call.

 

The men's and women's 470 classes still have two races to go before the medal race. In the women's, Mills and McIntyre lie first and on current form I think they will likely go into the medal race with a top three spot guaranteed. They are in a really close race with the Poles but either gold or silver seems a good prospect. The men's boat are tied on pts with the third placed team and just a handful of pts behind the second. Difficult to predict what may happen here.

 

We now have three medals guaranteed. At least one more seems very likely and up to seven are a real possibility. Like the boxing squad we maybe on course for a record breaking performance from our sailors.
