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
Equestrian: Individual Eventing Cross Country

Zara Phillips missed the past two Olympics due to injuries with her previous horse, so she’ll be desperate to make up for lost time at this year’s Games. The Queen’s granddaughter takes on the gruelling course at Greenwich Park on her new horse, High Kingdom. “It’s a young horse, and she’s a very good rider in big competitions and has a great temperament,” says the BBC’s eventing expert Mike Tucker. “It’s a combination that could really be in good form when it matters and that’s what Britain wants.” Daniel Bettridge
Dawn French: Why I’ll be watching diving
“I said no to the hundred-yard dash. I want to watch it on telly rather than take part in it this time. From my sofa, I’ll be watching out for young Tom Daley because he’s from down ‘ere in Devon. I’ll not be watching the weightlifters – I’m always scared of witnessing a rectal prolapse.”
Catch the diving on BBC1 and BBC Olympics 10 today at 3pm.
