UNLIKELY FINAL BERTH

Reid has finished fifth in a time of 53.0, so we won't likely see him in the final.

CHRISTOPHER REID

He is up next, in the men's 100m back-stroke semi-final.

AND WE'RE BACK

The bad news is that Bafana Bafana suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Denmark. The good news - Cameron van der Burgh is in the pool pretty soon, competing for gold in the men's 100m breastroke final.

THAT'S A WRAP

We will be back at around 4am SA time on Monday morning for swimming coverage. Here's hoping Cameron van der Burgh brings home the gold! Cheers, for now.

A DOZEN KMs LEFT

It has started to rain now, with Moolman-Pasio dropping out of the chase group.

07 Aug 2016

LESS THAN 30KMs TO GO...

The riders currently at the front are Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (France), Marianne Vos (Netherlands), Elena Cecchini (Italy), Gracie Elvin (Australia), Malgortza Jasinska (Poland), Anisha Vekemans (Belgium) and Trixi Worrack (Germany). Kachelhoffer and Moolman-Pasio have fallen away, somewhat. Plenty of time to catch up again, though.

SECOND FOR LE CLOS

Chad le Clos finishes second in his men's 200m freestyle heat with a time of 1:45.89; Myles Brown ends fifth - 1:46.78. They're both through to tomorrow's semi-final.

Those hoping to see Kate Christowitz, Ursula Grobler, Kirsten McCann, Lee-Ann Persse, James Thompson, John Smith, Jake Green, David Hunt and Vincent Breet in action today won't - the rowing has been postponed due to stormy conditions.
