Weightlifting: Women’s 58kg
12.30pm BBC3, BBC Olympics 12
Zoe Smith was dubbed “Britain’s strongest schoolgirl” when she won a bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games aged just 16.
Standing 5ft 2in tall and hardly burly, Smith doesn’t look like many people’s idea of a weightlifter. In fact, she began as a gymnast but a coach encouraged her, at the age of 12, to try weightlifting — it came naturally. If she doesn’t manage a medal here, time’s on her side: she may not reach her peak till 2020. David Butcher
