But as Colin Jackson so rightly points out - it's better to have a bad lane in a final than no lane at all.
19.18: ATHLETICS - Jack Green is not a happy boy. He's angry with himself for missing his stride pattern and having to reach for the hurdle that he inevitably hit and then felt his hip flexor, so pulled up.

19.06: ATHLETICS - Dai Greene finishes fourth in his 400mh semi-final with a time of 48.19. The top two from the three semis go through with two fastest losers, so with two more races to come he's hanging on to his place in the final by his fingertips.

12.53: ATHLETICS - Usain Bolt is next up on track. In the same heat, and in the next lane to him is James Dasaolu of Team GB. Will Bolt want to lay down a marker, or just cruise through and not give anything away.

12.48: ATHLETICS - Natalia Dobrynska is listed as a 'Did Not Start' for the javelin, she must have a injury and it's a sad way for a defending champion to bow out of the Olympics heptathlon competition.
12.45: ATHLETICS - K J-T gets very close to her PB with her final javelin throw, recording a throw of 38.37m. Louise Hazel goes one better and sets a new PB of 47.38, it's a much better day two in the heptathlon for Hazel after a disappointing first day.
12.43: TENNIS - Murray and Robson are in a strong position in the first set, leading 5-3 and Murray is serving.
12.42: ATHLETICS - USA trials champion Justin Gatling breaks the ten second barrier, coasting to 9.97s.

12.08: ATHLETICS - Barbara Parker finishes fifth in her 300m steeplechase heat with a time of 9:32.07. She won't qualify automatically but is currently in the last fastest loser sport with one heat to go.
Bad news from the field as former British record holder Kate Dennison, fails to qualify for the final. She failed all three attempts at 4.40m and her only recorded height of 4.25m won't be enough to take her through. In her final attempt at 4.40m she twisted her ankle in the final stride before takeoff and bailed out of the jump.
12.05: SHOOTING - Jennifer McIntosh finishes the qualifying of the three position 50m rifle prone in 42nd place and won't progress to the next round.

11.36: VOLLEYBALL - Team GB's men have just taken to the court at Earls Court, hunting their first London 2012 win against Poland.
11.32: ATHLETICS - Jess Ennis has surely taken a huge leap towards an Olympic gold. She jumps out to 6.48m with her final effort, just three centimetres behind her PB.
Reigning champion Natalia Dobrynska has surely lost her titles as well, after two no jumps she can only manage 3.7m - she must be injured?
11.29: ATHLETICS - Martyn Rooney makes it three Team GB runners out of three into the 400m semi-finals. His time of 45.36s is good enough for second in his heat.
BLADE RUNNER: Oscar Pistorius makes Olympics debut and safely qualifies for 400m semis
11.22: ATHLETICS - Conrad Williams is safely through to the 400m semi-finals as well. His time of 46.12s was good enough for third in his heat, the big story was Lashawn Merritt pulling up injured mid way through the race though.
The former world, and reigning olympic champion injured his achilles in a race in Monaco, and he clearly hadn't had enough time for it to recover. One of the favourites is out.
11.16: CYCLING - Jason Kenny's effort in the sprint qualifying earlier have given him a bye into the 1/8 finals tomorrow, a good day's work for the man from Bolton.
11.14: ATHLETICS - Nigel Levine qualifies safely from his men's 400m heat, finishing third in 45.58 seconds.
11.10: ATHLETICS - Ennis pulls a jump out of the bag in the second round. She leaps out to 6.40m in the second round. K J-T also improves to 6.19m and Hazel finishes her three jumps with a season's best of 5.77m
11.04: TRIATHLON - It's over in Hyde Park and Jenkins ends up fifth. In a sprint finish it appeared to be a dead heat between Spirig of Switzerland and Norden of Sweden. They've both been given the same time but Spirig seems to have been given the gold.
11.03: HANDBALL - It's game over at the Copper Box as Team GB's men lose 34-17 to Tunisia.
11.00: TRIATHLON - It's bad news from Hyde Park as Helen Jenkins has been dropped by the leading group on the final lap and is going backwards.
10.56: CYCLING - Another first place for Team GB in the velodrome. Ed Clancy wins the first event of the omnium, the 250m flying lap and takes the one point for the win. The omnium is made up of six events, the winner of each event receives one point, the rider in second place gets two points and so on. The rider with the lowest number of points after the six events wins.
10.55: TRIATHLON - Jenkins is in the leading group of four triathletes with just 2.5km to go. Will it come down to a sprint?
10.49: ATLETICS - Holly Bleasdale and Kate Dennison are under way in the women's pole vault qualifying. The automatic qualifying mark is 4.60m, otherwise the top 12 competitors will progress to the final. Bleasdale has a PB of 4.87 so shouldn't struggle with qualifying, however Kate Dennison's PB is just 4.61m, with a SB of 4.56m, so making the final would be good progress.
10.46: TRIATHLON - Jenkins is still in the front group after the half way point of the 10km run. Who will make their move first?
10.41: ATHLETICS - Jessica Ennis disappoints in her first long jump, a jump of 5.95m is nowhere near here PB and SB of 6.51. Its a similar story for K J-T, she has the same PB and SB as Ennis, but can only manage a jump of 6.03 m.
10.34: TRIATHLON - Helen Jenkins is in ninth place heading in to the run, but the lead group are all together so it will come down to the strongest runner.
10.27: CYCLING - The records keep coming in the velodrome as Jason Kenny qualifies fastest for the men's sprint in a new Olympic record. His time of 9,713, beats Hoy's previous record by over 0.1s. France's Gregory Bauge qualified second in 9.952s.
10.22: CYCLING - There's a full day of action in the velodrome today and Team GB's Jason Kenny is underway very shortly in the qualifying for the men's individual sprint.

10.00: Good morning and welcome to what everyone seems to be calling Super Saturday. There are 25 gold medals on offer today, how many will Team GB get there hands on?
