Today’s highlights at the Olympics: Tuesday, July 31

These are some of the events to look out for today at London 2012.

In the hunt for medals, equestrian eventing team and individual medals are up for grabs today, between 10.30am and 3.30pm, with the GB team currently in silver medal position.

In the canoe slalom, Britain’s David Florence, who won silver in Beijing, qualified fifth fastest from the heats and goes in the semi-finals from 1.30pm, hoping to make the final later in the day.

Following on from the heroics of the men’s team yesterday, the female gymnasts go for gold in the team final today from 4.30pm.

And Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow, the European champions, will try to go one better than Daley and Waterfield in the 10-metre platform synchro dive.

The swimming finals continue tonight with Michael Phelps looking for his first gold of the London Games in the 200m butterfly and Chinese teenager Ye Shiwen looking to add the 200 individual medley to the 400m title she bagged on Saturday.

Controversy surrounds the 16-year-old, who smashed the world record in the 400m IM, swimming the last 50m of the freestyle faster than American Ryan Lochte, who won the men’s event in the second fastest time in history. There have been allegations of doping, which have been strenuously denied.

Elsewhere, Team GB are in action as Laura Robson takes on French Open champion Maria Sharapova in the second round of the tennis and the women’s football team, which has already qualified for the next round, take on the Brazilians and possibly the world’s best player, Marta.
