MEN'S 200M FREESTYLE FINAL
In 2000 in Sydney, Dutch great Pieter van den Hoogenband pipped home favourite Ian Thorpe to victory; in 2004 in Athens, "Thorpedo" took revenge with the Dutchman in second and Michael Phelps third; and in 2008 in Beijing, Phelps obliterated the world record to win gold. Today in London, there is another stellar field, and any of USA's Ryan Lochte, China's Sun Yang, France's Yannick Agnel and South Korea's Park Tae-hwan could feasibly win. I just dribbled all over my keyboard in anticipation.
1947: Under way in the Men's 200m Freestyle Final and at the halfway stage it's France's Yannick Agnel leading from South Korea's Park Tae-hwan and USA's Ryan Lochte...
1950: A day after his stunning final relay leg earned France victory in the 4x100m Freestyle, the awesome Yannick Agnel wins his second gold at London 2012 with an incredible display, beating South Korea's Park Tae-hwan into silver and China's Sun Yang into bronze. Ryan Lochte finished fourth. What a race.
2046: Yep, USA's Michael Phelps is up now in the semis of the Men's 200m Butterfly competition. if he makes it to the Final, that'll take place at 1948 London Time on Tuesday.
2051: USA's Michael Phelps qualifies for the Men's 200m Butterfly Final on Tuesday by winning his heat and he'll be joined by compatriot Tyler Clary, the one who criticised Phelps for not training hard earlier on this year. That could be explosive.
USA's Michael Phelps:
"I made my first Olympic team in this event 12 years ago so this is where it all started, but it's all about tomorrow night now. I almost got my strategy wrong though. The shorter events are much better for me right now, now I'm getting older!"
2116: Great Britain's Hannah Miley finishes second in her semi and qualifies for the Women's 200m Individual Medley Final. In the second semi, the 16-year-old Chinese sensation Ye Shiwen breaks the Olympic Record. Incredible. USA's Caitlin Leverenz and Ariana Kukors and Australia's Stephanie Rice all move into Tuesday's 2039 London Time Final.
2146: Ah, poor Jordyn Wieber. Sunday, the US gymnast world champion failed to qualify for the all around final after being penalised for a slip. She came fourth overall but will not take her place in the final due to the two-per-country rule. Seems ridiculous to me. She's fourth best - she should be in the final, surely?
2211: Sadie, I'm working on it. I'll let you know at the end of December when I have no friends, no family and no life left. As a matter of fact, I read yesterday that on average, people in Great Britain are expected to watch 27 hours of Olympic action over the 17 days. I think I'd done that by Sunday lunchtime.
2228: Yeah, you're not wrong. In her TV interview afterwards she looked like she'd wandered into the Aquatic Center from outside, so stunned was the 15-year-old at what she had just achieved. With Ruta Meilutyte, 15, Ye Shewan, 16 and Missy Franklin, 17, it's a teenagers' world in the pool at London 2012.
2235: With the night slowly drawing to a close, let's take a look at some of the best pictures on Day Three of the 2012 Olympic Games...
1214: The hosts' wait for their first gold medal looks set to continue into day four as their eventers slip into silver medal position following a number of mistakes on the final showjumping leg. Germany move up into the gold medal position.
