Wednesday Day 5 List of events GB are competing in on 2012 August 1st

In the swimming Britain has several swimming finalists: 200m Breast stroke sees Michael Jamieson who lowered the British Record by over a second and Adam Willis who beat his PB realistic medal contenders after winning and qualifying third overall. Is gold a step to far, realistically yes with the quality of the field, and can both medal I dont think so. I think Jamieson has the stronger chance of may be silver. But watch out for Adrian Moorhouse commentary as its his old event, and if we win a medal expect him to lift the roof off! Swimming: Gemma Lowe snuck into 200m Butterfly which is her weakest event. Chris Hebborn Walker and Marco Laughran compete in 200 Backstroke Earlier in the day Rowing finals start at Eton Dorney. GB could be celebrating their first womens gold medal in rowing after females events were introduced in 1976, as women's pair Helen Glover and Heather Stanning prepare for the race of their lives, doing their best to ignore the onrushing hype. Another medal opportunity in the rowing is with mens 8s which sees Greg Searle at 40 competing with .Constantine Louloudis both aboard. At this event, it has seen GB win one Gold Medal in 100 years and that was at Sydney 2000. Richard and Peter Chambers, rapidly emerging as rowing's answer to triathlon's Brownlee brothers. In company with Chris Bartley and Rob Williams they continued their excellent recent form to qualify fastest for Thursday's lightweight men's four final, having already won a gold medal in the Munich World Cup regatta in June. The men's double sculls of Sam Townsend and Bill Lucas have also qualified for their final, finishing third in their semi-final behind Slovenia and Lithuania. Their hopes of a medal were further enhanced by the surprise elimination of Germany and the reigning Olympic champions Australia.
