Live blog – Rio Olympic Games day 7

12 August 2016

Following yesterday’s silver medal for University of Bath graduate Vicky Thornley, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning look to add another medal to the Team GB haul on day seven.

The defending Olympic champions set the fastest time in both the heats and the semi-finals and will look to continue that form in the final this afternoon.

University of Bath-based swimmer Jazz Carlin will be looking for her second medal of the week after qualifying third-fastest for the 800m freestyle final.

On the badminton court, Heather Olver takes on Indonesia in the women’s doubles event.
