Evening session in Rio (Monday morning in Australia)

The first event in the field, the men’s high jump qualifying will feature Australian young guns Joel Baden (Vic) and Brandon Starc (NSW). Leaving it to the last minute to qualify, Baden, at just 20 years old, makes his Olympic debut after gaining experience at last year’s world championships in Beijing. Starc (NSW) is the best high jumper Australia has had since Tim Forsyth. He reached the final in last year’s world championships, and will be seeking a similar passage here. His brother Mitchell is in great form, taking his 100th test wicket a couple weeks ago… now it’s Brandon’s turn to shine.

Morgan Mitchell (Vic) and Anneliese Rubie (NSW) are back to continue their hunt for a spot in the final in the women’s 400m final.

And it’s semi-final action for all three women’s 1500m representatives, after Linden Hall(Vic) and Zoe Buckman(Vic) finished in the top 6 in their heats to auto-qualify in 4:11.75 and 4:06.93 respectively, with Jenny Blundell(NSW) running 4:09.05 to progress on time. The athletes will be in the hunt for fast times and a spot in the final.

Monday morning Australian time the world stops to watch the men’s 100m final – the last event of day three at the track. Alas no Josh Clarke who had to withdraw before the Games, but with Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin racing for glory, it promises to be an epic showdown.
