Hello all! Thanks Scott for the last five hours of power. And welcome, Olympic obsessives, to what in Tokyo time is the last night on the track, the last night in the velodrome (a bit more tomorrow morning), and the last day for a lot of sports. It will be gold, gold, gold across the next few hours, as so many competitions reach their ends. My name’s Geoff, drop me an email if you like, and if my hands are not on fire then I may even have time to include it.
And that’s all from me today. I’ll now place you in the very capable hands of Geoff Lemon. Thanks again for your company. Enjoy the rest of the day’s action.
We’ve been blessed with good weather (oppressive heat notwithstanding) for most of these Games, but the heavens have opened in Tokyo today. The rain is forecast to ease soon but there’s a high chance of thunderstorms later this evening.
I’m en route now to the Olympic Stadium. We have some big events scheduled for tonight, including the women’s high jump and men’s 1,500m – both featuring Australian medal prospects.
But the weather might have other ideas…
