Four of the Team GB medal hopefuls for week two of the Games

At the end of day seven of the Olympic Games on Wednesday, Team GB had won a total of 24 medals.

Three golds were won in the swimming, with Adam Peaty securing Team GB‘s first gold of the Games in the 100m breaststroke.

Tom Dean then won the 200m freestyle final, ahead of team-mate Duncan Scott in second.

Dean and Scott then partnered with Matt Richards and James Guy to win the 4x200m freestyle relay.

Elsewhere, Tom Pidcock became Olympic mountain bike champion on day three, whilst Tom Daley and Matty Lee won gold on the synchronised 10m platform in diving. It was Daley’s first Olympic gold, 13 years after his debut in Beijing.

And overnight, Beth Shriever won gold in the women’s BMX competition.

Team GB have won a further nine silver and nine bronze medals during the Games.

Now, ahead of the second week of the Games, here’s a look at some of the many more Team GB medal hopefuls:

Pat McCormack (Boxing)

Pat McCormack is the only athlete on this list already guaranteed a medal, but the identity of its colour still up for grabs.

He takes on Ireland’s Aidan Walsh in the semi-final of the men’s welterweight competition, knowing a win would see him fight for the gold.

Paul Casey (Golf)

After two rounds of the men’s golf tournament at Tokyo, Great Britain’s Paul Casey is well-placed.

At the time of writing, he currently on seven-under-par for the tournament, having carded a score of three-under today.

That’s four shots off the current lead, which is held by USA’s Xander Schauffele. It’s all up for grabs heading into the weekend.

Team GB (Cycling)

The married pair of Laura and Jason Kenny have already won a massive 14 Olympic golds between them, and will be looking to add to their tally in Tokyo.

Laura goes in the team pursuit and omnium, as well as the re-introduced madison event.

Jason, meanwhile, goes in the team sprint, sprint and keirin events.

With three other Olympic champions in the Team GB cycling squad, as well as plenty of exciting new talent, the track cycling scene will certainly be one to keep an eye on.

Team GB (Rugby Sevens)

In the women’s rugby sevens competition, Great Britain have progressed to the semi-finals where they take on France.

Should they win, they will face a tough test in the form of either New Zealand or Fiji.

Should they lose, they will take on the loser of the other semi-final in the bronze medal match tomorrow.
