Rio 2016: Day 4 preview excellent chance of Australian gold in the equestrian

There is plenty of Olympic action in the pool and an excellent chance of Australian gold in the equestrian.


Cameron McEvoy will try to make a statement in the 100m freestyle heats.

It is another big day in the pool with Aussie gold-medal hope Cameron McEvoy back in the water for the heats (from 2:02am) and semi-finals (from 11:03am) of the blue-riband event, the 100m freestyle. Eighteen-year-old sprint star Kyle Chalmers will also be there.

McEvoy will also line up in the 4x200m freestyle relay. The semi-finals start at 3:17am, with the final the last race of the day, at 12:38pm on Wednesday.

Australia will have two representatives in the women’s 200m freestyle final at 11:19am, with Bronte Barratt and Emma McKeon making the cut. Also look for American Katie Ledecky as she tries to add to her gold and silver medals.

Not to beat the drum for the Americans too much, but you are running out of chances to see Michael Phelps swim, so watch for him go for gold medal number 20 in the 200m butterfly final at 11:28am.

Five-time Olympic medallist Alicia Coutts will contest the women’s 200m individual medley final at 12:29pm.
