Men’s Long Jump Final
7:55pm BBC1, BBC Olympics 11
It’s quite a modest field in the long jump at the moment. America’s Dwight Phillips, the world champion, is out injured, and another of the best in the field, Panamanian Irving Saladino, hasn’t jumped this year at all. As a result, this event is wide open.
Team GB has this year’s joint world leader, Greg Rutherford, who has had a very solid season. If he hits the board and goes over 8.40m he could well win it.
Chris Tomlinson has jumped poorly this year, struggling to get out to 8m until the London Grand Prix. He’ll need a real turnaround in form to challenge for a medal. Jonathan Edwards
