1742: Michael my friend, your wish is our command - not only is there a link on the top right of this page, but there's now a permanent link to the results, schedule and medals table in the highlights section just above. Happy days.
1750: Confession time: I've started dreaming about the Olympics already. I woke up with a start this morning after Jess Ennis nailed her javelin throw in the heptathlon - an event that doesn't even take place until next Saturday! So that's it, London 2012 has taken over my conscious and my sub-conscious. I am at its mercy. Be kind to me, Games of the XXX Olympiad.
1800: Seriously though, if you're not allowed to have a couple of weeks off every four years for the greatest sporting event on Earth, Kiki... Ever consider you work too hard?
Someone who didn't have to work too hard today (seamless, wasn't it?) was Maria Sharapova, who eased into the second round of the Women's Singles in the Tennis by thrashing Israel's Shahar Peer 6-2 6-0.
WHAT SPORT IS LEFT ON DAY TWO, THEN?
Not much. Only Men's Football, Men's Fencing, Women's Table-Tennis, Women's Archery, Men's Water Polo, Men's and Women's Badminton, Women's Hockey, Men's Weightlifting, Men's Handball, Men's and Women's Swimming, Men's Basketball, Men's and Women's Beach Volleyball, Women's Gymnastics, Men's Volleyball and Men's Boxing. Phew!
1809: We're halfway through the Women's Team Archery Final at Lord's and it is going to be neck-and-neck just like the Men's Final yesterday - South Korea and China are currently locked at 104-104. Oh, and it's bucketing it down with rain as well. Superb stuff.
1818: Oh my word, in the Women's Team Archery Final, it's South Korea 184-182 China after 21 arrows each - with only three to go. This is going to the wire...
1826: An amazing achievement then, as South Korea's Women's Archery Team wins gold medal for the seventh successive Olympic Games. And you know why that stretch isn't longer? Because the event only started in Seoul in 1988.
1830: Indeed it was, Omee. Both the Men's and Women's Archery Team events were won by a single point, with South Korea needing and getting a nine with their final arrow. Top drama. We've got six more golds to come today - four in the pool, one in Men's Fencing and one in Men's Weightlifting.
1837: There are some cracking matches going on at the moment - Horse Guards Parade has just gone wild as Great Britain's Women's Beach Volleyball Team have levelled it at 1-1 in sets with Canada. In the Men's Football at Wembley, 10-man Senegal are holding on 2-0 vs. Uruguay.
ON THIS DAY:
1948: On July 29th, King George VI opens the 14th Olympic Games in London. It is the first Olympics since 1936 and comes to be known as the Austerity Games because of the post-war economic situation. No new venues are built and athletes are housed in existing accommodation rather than a new purpose-built village. Germany and Japan are not invited and USSR choose not to compete.
Kristen Babb-Sprague, USA (1968). Solo synchronized swimming was only an Olympic event three times, and at its final hurrah at Barcelona ‘92, there was much controversy. Babb-Sprague’s main challenger, the Canadian Sylvie Frechette, had suffered the death of her boyfriend a week before the Opening Ceremony, but decided to compete regardless.
A scoring error marred the competition, with a Brazilian judge giving Frechette a mark of 8.7 and then claiming she meant to give 9.7. The original score stood and Babb-Sprague claimed gold. A year later, Frechette was awarded a belated gold medal while Babb-Sprague was allowed to keep hers too.
1901: They did, and it was - Great Britain's Shauna Mullin and Zara Dampney beat Canada 2-1 in their Pool F contest at Horse Guards Parade, and that might just be the best atmosphere of London 2012 so far too. In the Men's Football, 10-man Senegal held on to beat much-fancied Uruguay 2-0.
A NIGHT IN THE POOL
Last night was awesome. Awesome for Ryan Lochte, Sun Yang and Ye Shiwen, anyway. Not for Michael Phelps. We go again tonight, and this is our schedule for the evening - all times London Time, don't forget:
1930: Women's 100m Butterfly Final
1937: Men's 200m Freestyle Semifinals
1948: Women's 100m Breaststroke Semifinals
2008: Men's 100m Breaststroke Final
2015: Women's 400m Freestyle Final
2025: Men's 100m Backstroke Semifinals
2044: Women's 100m Backstroke Semifinals
2054: Men's 4x100m Freestyle Relay Final
1917: Good work. Does he know, yet? Ryan Lochte is in action tonight in the Men's 200m Freestyle Semis (along with China's Sun Yang), and he could yet team up with big rival (and mate) Michael Phelps in the Men's 4x100m Freestyle Relay Final, our last race of the night.
1926: Tonight's swimming is about to get under way at the majestic Aquatic Center at the Olympic Park in London. Good to see Dana Vollmer is in such optimistic mood ahead of her 100m Butterfly Final. Great Britain's hopes, meanwhile, rest on Ellen Gandy.
1931: The swimmers, as per usual a couple of minutes late, enter the arena for the Women's 100m Butterfly Final, and Team GB's Ellen Gandy gets the biggest cheer of the evening so far, of course. Dana Vollmer very much the one to beat, though. Australia's Alicia Coutts could be her biggest challenger.
1933: They are off in the first Final of the evening. They'll be finishing soon, too...
1936: Staggering final 50 meters from USA's Dana Vollmer, who turned in third place but then just left the rest of the field for dead, and despite a very average finish she still manages to break the world record. China's Lu Ying wins silver, Australia's Alicia Coutts bronze.
