Here are the Brits you'll want to watch on Day 8 of the Rio Olympics


It looks set to be a busy old day in Rio tomorrow, as the Olympics heads into its second week.

It's pretty hard to keep up with what sports you should prioritise tuning into, so here's a run down of the Brits you won't want to miss on Day 8 of the Games.

1:00am - The final of both the men's and women's eight take place, with Great Britain's teams seeking to emulate the women's pair and men's four in winning gold.

3.45pm - Jessica Ennis-Hill and Katarina Johnson-Thompson are in action in the long jump as the second and final day of the heptathlon gets under way. The medals should be decided at around 3am BST on Sunday.

8.45pm - Laura Trott, Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker and Joanna Rowsell-Shand will be hoping to retain Britain's women's team pursuit crown after setting a world record in qualifying, while Becky James will be among the medal contenders in the Keirin about half an hour later.

12.50am - Greg Rutherford, Mo Farah and Ennis-Hill could provide a repeat of the epic 'Super Saturday' from London 2012 over the space of a few hours in Rio. Rutherford is first in action in the men's long jump final while Farah competes in the 10,000 metres at around 1.30am and Ennis-Hill rounds off the heptathlon in the 800m.

2:00am - The last day of swimming at the Games sees Fran Halsall in action, if she reaches the women's 50m freestyle final, while the irrepressible Michael Phelps could round off his Olympics in style in the 4x100m medley relay.
