1711: Your friend and mine Yayolympics raises a good point - it has now been confirmed by FINA, swimming's world governing body, that South Korea's Park Tae-hwan, who this morning was sensationally disqualified from the Men’s 400m freestyle, has now been reinstated and will race in the final tonight.
From CNN's Callum Tennent:
"Another big shock, this time in the Men’s Archery Team Event -- USA have beaten South Korea in the semifinals 224-219. The South Koreans had previously won gold in the last three Men’s Olympic Archery Team Events -- that they will now be forced to compete for the bronze is a real upset.
"The Americans will go on to either play Mexico or Italy in the final, whilst the audience of 20 million watching back in South Korea will be left to ponder what went wrong."
1720: That "hitting a CD across a football pitch" has seriously impressed this part of the CNN office in the very Olympic city of London. Barely believable accuracy. And I'm from Nottingham, so I know a fair bit about bows and arrows (Robin Hood).
1724: Right, let's put this one to bed - we don't know exactly why Park Tae-hwan was disqualified yet, but it almost certainly had to be because of a false start. However, he has now been reinstated, so unfortunately, Canada's Ryan Cochrane now misses out. And it's nothing to do with Michael Phelps, because it's a different race. All good? Awesome.
1729: A golden smile there. But what do we have to look forward to on the rest of London 2012 Olympic Games Day One Proper, as absolutely no-one is calling it? Well, there's an evening of drama awaiting us in the aquatic center, with Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte going tete-a-tete, there's the men's team gold medal match in the archery at Lord's, a bit of men's artistic gymnastics, some women's football and a splash of women's basketball and volleyball too. That enough for you?
1734: Quick update in the tennis - after a real scare, Switzerland's world number one Roger Federer eventually made it through in three sets against Colombia's Alejandro Falla. But sixth seed Tomas Berdych is already out, losing to Belgium's Steve Darcis. And in the women's draw, Sam Stosur lost to Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro.
1747: Thanks for asking, Jake. Yeah, Zara Phillips, who is 14th in line to the British throne, is part of the GB Equestrian team for the Games, and their bid for a medal gets under way on Sunday in the three-day eventing. Are they favorites? No. Could they win a medal? Yes. Stay tuned.
1756: In the Men's team Archery at Lord's, South Korea have just claimed victory in the bronze medal match, beating Mexico 224-219. Which means we're very close to the final, as USA take on Italy. Don't worry, I will very much be keeping you posted.
1811: Update at exactly the halfway mark in the Men's Archery Team Final: USA 106-110 Italy. There are some very nervous Americans and Italians in the crowd at Lord's, no doubt about it. Cracking atmosphere. The US need to raise their game because Italy aren't missing.
1816: In the women's preliminaries at the Basketball Arena, the USA are currently leading Croatia 81-56 deep into the final quarter. They are hot favourites to win the gold medal. Back to the archery, and after 18 goes each the deficit is reduced to only two: USA 163-165 Italy. Humdinger.
1820: Edge of? I've just fallen off my seat. This is Gripping with a capital 'G'. Italy suffer the indignity of an '8' and the gap is reduced to only one with three goes left on each side. Crikey...
1824: That. Was. Sen. Sational. USA cranked the pressure right up on Italy in the closing stages and Michele Frangilli stepped up to the plate in the grand manner, firing out a '10' with his last shot to seal a nerve-wracking victory. Wow.
1839: Four-time world champion Wang Mingjuan was the hot favourite for gold in London - after all, she hasn't lost in international competition since winning her first world title in 2002. A a combined total of 205kg earned her victory, with a snatch 91kg and clean and jerk 114kg. Japan's Hiromi Miyake claimed silver and Ryang Chun Hwa of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea bronze.
1847: Now then, there's quite a lot of talk flying around about Kazhakstan's gold medal-winning men's road race champion Alexandre Vinokourov and whether he should have been allowed to compete after failing a drugs test during the 2007 Tour de France.
Vinokourov served his punishment with a two-year ban, and is now an Olympic gold medallist. This is a hot topic in Great Britain ahead of the Olympics, with sprinter Dwain Chambers, cyclist David Millar and shot putter Carl Myerscough all testing positive in the past but taking their place in Team GB.
Do you think these athletes should be allowed to compete at the Olympics?
In case you missed it earlier, China's Yi Siling won the first gold medal at London 2012 by triumphing in the Women's 10m Air Rifle Shooting competition. Since then, we've had six more golds, with Russia, Kazhakstan, South Korea, Italy and Brazil all grabbing glory, along with another for the Chinese.
