A look towards day three of the 2012 London Olympics and which New Zealand athletes will be competing.
The New Zealand men's team will look to emulate the women's side by opening their campaign with a victory when they take on South Korea at 7.30pm. Korea are ranked sixth in the world - just one spot ahead of the Black Sticks.
Day three at Eton Dorney sees two New Zealand crews return to action in the repechages from 8.40pm as the women's quadruple scull and the men's quadruple scull attempt to earn spots in their respective finals. Two boats will also take part in the heats with the women's double sculls (Fi Paterson, Anna Reymer) racing at 9.20pm followed 20 minutes later by the men's coxless four (Chris Harris, Sean O'Neill, Jade Uru, Tyson Williams).
Natalie Wiegersma is the sole New Zealander competing in the pool, taking part in the women's 200m individual medley heats at 9.57pm. The semifinals, if she qualifies, take place just before 8am on Tuesday morning.
The big race in the pool tomorrow morning (6.43am) will be the men's 200m final which sees American Ryan Lochte, China's Yang Sun and France's Yannick Agnel do battle - all of whom have already won a gold each in London. The race will also features Korean Taehwan Park who took out silver in the 400m.
The eventing moves from the dressage to the cross country tonight with the New Zealand team set to take the course last. The New Zealand team of Andrew Nicholson, Jock Paget, Caroline Powell, Jonelle Richards and Mark Todd sit in a share of fourth place after the dressage. Germany, Australia and Great Britain currently hold the medal positions.
Todd currently sits in third in the individual event as he looks to add to his haul of four medals, two golds, at the Olympics.
