ATHLETICS - MAN KAUR
After capturing the hearts of spectators with her 100 metres performance on Monday, the oldest athlete at WMG2017 returns to Trusts Arena, Waitakere, for the shot put (9.15am) and 200 metres (3.10pm).

SOFTBALL - JENNY HOLLIDAY
When she was clocked at 123km/h, Aussie Holliday was the fastest pitcher ever in women's softball. The 1996 Olympic bronze medallist will turn out for unbeaten Pacific Diamonds in the women's 35+ division at Rosedale Park, 9.40am.

ROWING - NATHAN TWADDLE V ROB WADDELL
The two former Olympians have already locked horns once this regatta, with Waddell's Waikato crew prevailing in eights. They hook up again in the coxless four, with the final scheduled for 3.25pm at Lake Karapiro.

CYCLING - REG RYE
At 94 years, New Zealand's oldest competitor at the World Masters Games will ride solo for a 2000m individual pursuit title at the Cambridge Avantidrome, during an evening session that starts at 6pm.

GOLF - BRYAN WILLIAMS
The former All Black wing made 38 appearances for his country between 1970-78, but two hip operations later, has entered bowls and golf at the WMG2017. He tees off at Muriwai, 12.30pm.
