ATHLETICS

Women's 10,000m (10.10pm)

The athletics programme kicks off today with Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba attempt to win her third straight women's 10,000m gold.

JUDO

Men's over-100kg (from 9pm)

Eight-time world champion Teddy Riner of France defends his 2012 Olympic gold in the heaviest judo division of all.

SWIMMING

Men's 100m butterfly, women's 800m freestyle, men's 50m freestyle (tomorrow, 9.12am)

Three highly-anticipated finals in a row: Michael Phelps' swimming likely in his last individual event (can Joseph Schooling or Quah Zheng Wen grace the final too?), Katie Ledecky going for her third gold, and the explosiveness of the fastest race in the pool.
