Kenny faces the daunting challenge of filling Sir Chris Hoy's shoes after being selected ahead of the reigning Olympic champion for Britain's sole individual sprint place. France's Gregory Bauge, the world champion, was always likely to provide a tough a opponent whoever was selected, but Kenny will be optimistic of improving on his silver from Beijing.

Kenny must first get past Njisane Nicholas Phillip from Trinidad & Tobago in the semi-final (16:00). Victoria Pendleton continues her individual sprint campaign, facing Belarusian Olga Panarina in the quarter-finals (16:43).

  • ATHLETICS (20:45-20:46): Dai Greene, men's 400m hurdles

Greene might be the reigning world champion but the Welshman has a huge task on his hands to add Olympic gold after scraping into the final with the seventh-fastest time. Felix Sanchez of the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico's Javier Culson qualified fastest. Holly Bleasdale has joined the elite in the women's pole vault over the last year and could be in the mix for medals (19:00-21:06), with world record holder Yelena Isinbayeva the favourite.

This is the big chance for Tweddle to finally win the Olympic medal that has eluded her in more than a decade at the top of the sport. The 27-year-old Liverpudlian, who has won three world, six European and seven British titles, topped the leaderboard in qualification on Sunday ahead of He Kexin of China and Russian Viktoria Komova. China's four-time world and defending Olympic champion Chen Yibing is one to watch in the men's rings final (14:00).

Britain's showjumping quartet of Nick Skelton, Ben Maher, Scott Brash and Peter Charles lie in joint second place with Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands going into the final day. Saudia Arabia currently lead. Skelton, who is riding in his sixth Olympics, is hoping to lead Britain to a first Olympic showjumping medal since 1984.

Great Britain's women face a potentially do-or-die clash with Olympic champions the Netherlands. If China beat Japan in the afternoon, GB will need a draw to reach the semi-finals. The British won their opening three group matches, but a shock 2-1 defeat by China means they still have work to do.
