TEAM GB won two silver medals overnight, on a day that proved to be quite the emotional rollercoaster.
Scots Stephen Milne, Dan Wallace and Duncan Scott alongside Englishman James Guy won silver in the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay.
Although they were down in the first leg, the team managed to pull back and Guy overtook the Japanese team in the final leg to claim silver.
There was a degree of redemption for Guy, who went into the individual 200m as world champion but agonisingly missed out on a medal in fourth.
First place went to team USA, with Michael Phelps winning his 21st Olympic gold medal.
Also in the pool, Siobhan O’Connor swam to silver in the 200 metres individual medley.
Setting a British record of 2 minutes 06.88 seconds, O’Connor closed down on Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu in the final length to win second place.
The 20-year-old from Bath said: “I was pretty nervous in the call room and knew I had to try to stick to how I swim the race best.
“When I looked around and saw the time I was over the moon because I didn’t think I had that time in me. I’m really pleased to push her as hard as I could.”
O’Connor’s achievement is all the more impressive considering she was diagnosed with the debilitating colon condition ulcerative colitis after London 2012, where she made her Olympic debut aged only 16.
In the tennis tournament, Andy Murray beat Argentinian Juan Monaco.
This gets the Team GB flag bearer through the third round of the tennis. He won 6-2 6-1, in a bid to defend his gold medal.
Tennis has certainly been full of surprises this year, with Murray the only defending champion left out of the men’s and women’s singles and doubles.
