DAY 10 IN A NUTSHELL
Horse, and hoarse: Two more golds for the host nation - first a dramatic jump-off as Britain won its first showjumping team gold for 60 years. Then Jason Kenny thrilled a cacophonous velodrome with gold in the men's sprint track cycling.
LEADING BRITS IN ACTION
Great Britain beat Netherlands in a jump-off to win the team showjumping title.
Jason Kenny beat world champion Greory Bauge to win men's sprint cycling gold.
Laura Trott leads the omnium track cycling at the halfway stage, while Victoria Pendleton cruised into the women's sprint semi-finals.
Beth Tweddle ended her career with a long-awaited Olympic medal, taking bronze on the uneven bars.
Kristian Thomas was eighth in the men's vault.
Nicola Adams guaranteed herself a medal reaching her boxing semi-final, but Savannah Marshall exited and Natasha Jonas lost to Irish sensation Katie Taylor.
Anthony Ogogo will receive a medal in the men's middleweight after reaching the last four.
Alison Young finished fifth in the Laser Radial and Paul Goodison seventh in the Laser.
James Huckle, Jonathan Hammond and Edward Ling missed their respective shooting finals.
Dai Greene finished fourth in the men's 400m hurdles, while Holly Bleasdale was equal sixth in the women's pole vault.
Perri Shakes-Drayton missed out on a place in the 400m hurdles final, was granted a reprieve when Denisa Rosolova was disqualified, but then saw her hopes crushed when the Russian was reinstated. Eilidh Child also missed the final.
Lawrence Okoye reached the discus final, recording the fourth-best distance in qualifying.
Hannah England, Lisa Dobriskey and Laura Weightman got safely through their 1500m heats, while Andrew Osagie reached the 800m semi-finals. Abi Oyepitan and Margaret Adeoye are through to the 200m semi-finals but Antika Onuora is out.
Tim Brabants reached the K1 final, while Britain's K4 also qualified for their final.
Jenna Randall and Olivia Federici reached the synchronised swimming duets final.
Chris Mears reached the 3m springboard diving final.
Britain's women's hockey team secured a place in the semi-finals despite losing 2-1 to the Netherlands.
Britain's men's basketball team secured their first Olympic victory with a thumping 90-58 result against China.
Britain's women's handballers lost 41-24 to Iceland, the men's volleyball team went down in straight sets to Argentina and the men's water polo team were beaten 13-4 by Montenegro.
Sailing intermediate positions: Men's 470 - 2nd, Men's 49er - 5th, Women's Elliott - into quarter-finals.
Beth Tweddle - at last. The woman hailed as a trailblazer for British gymnastics finally has an Olympic medal, a bronze in the uneven bars. The three-time world champion can now walk proudly into the sunset as she retires.
STILL GOT IT
Felix Sanchez. The 34-year-old Dominican hurdler completed a remarkable renaissance with gold on the Olympic Stadium. His time, 47.63, was exactly the same as the one he ran to win gold eight years ago in Athens.
Grenada: Kirani James won the Caribbean nation's first Olympic gold with a dominant performance in the men's 400m. The 19-year-old. Who clocked 43.94 seconds, has a glittering future.
Algerian 1,500 metres medal contender Taoufik Makhloufi was thrown out of the Olympics for not trying in his 800m heat. He had been forced to run the race after his team failed to withdraw him in time, but dropped out after 200 metres. While it was an unedifying scene, it seems harsh to kick Makhloufi out of his stronger event. If Jessica Ennis can pull out of the 100m hurdles with impunity, why exclude an athlete simply because of administrative cock-up by his team.
There have been some might roars at these Games, but the loudest decibel reading yet came in the boxing today, when Ireland's Katie Taylor beat Natasha Jonas of Great Britain.
TMI from the greatest swimmer ever. He wees in the pool. And so does everyone else.
