TEAM GB have high expectations going into Day 12 in Tokyo.
Skateboarding starlet Sky Brown has clinched skateboarding BRONZE at the age of only 13.
In doing so, the California-based British star has become our youngest ever medallist at a Games.
She had become the youngest Brit to even COMPETE at a summer Games, surpassing by 15 days the record held by swimmer Margery Hinton from the 1928 Games.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson has started her heptathlon competition with a strong run in the first event, the 100m hurdles.
But then she dropped behind rival Naffi Thiam in the high jump, where she appeared to need treatment on her troublesome Achilles.
Team GB’s women have been thumped by the Dutch in their hockey semi-final as the 2016 silver medalists won 5-1, exacting revenge for their Rio final defeat five years ago.
Meanwhile Jason Kenny has the chance to go for another gold medal in the men’s track sprint.

NINTH ON THE WATER
Team GB’s Luke Patience and Chris Grube are currently ninth on the water in the Men’s 470 class.
In the overall standings they’re in fifth place with a shot at a silver or bronze medal, but ninth on the water is not enough to challenge for those medal positions.
They need to turn it around here.
Keely Hodgkinson has been speaking to the BBC the day after winning silver in the 800m for Team GB, breaking Dame Kelly Holmes’ record, saying:
“I’ll be honest it’s all a bit of a blur, I don’t really remember much.
“I can remember the back straight, I was just kind of like ‘yeah, you’re in a good place.’
“I do think I could have been in a better place because when it got to the last hundred [metres] she’d gone [Athing Mu] but I put it all out there.
“I did my best and I walked away with a huge PG and this beautiful little [silver] medal.”
Team GB’s Luke Patience and Chris Grube are currently in action in the Men’s 470 class.
Gold has already been won by Australia regardless of the result in this medal race, but silver and bronze are still up for grabs.
Team GB are currently fifth in the standings, behind Sweden, Spain and New Zealand.
STORY SO FAR
Here’s what’s happened so far on Day Twelve of Tokyo 2020.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson is third in the Heptathlon standings after two events.
She comfortably won her 100m hurdles heat before jumping 1.86m in the high jump.
KJT was seen having some treatment on her achilles which has troubled her in the past, so let’s hope she gets plenty of rest ahead of the evening session from the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo.
And Sky Brown became Team GB’s youngest ever medallist at a summer Olympics with bronze in the Women’s Skateboarding park event.
After falling off her board in her first two runs, she held her nerve to score 56.47 on her third and final run, enough to take bronze for Team GB.
ONE HOUR WARNING
Just an hour to go now until the light-heavyweight gold medal match between Team GB’s Ben Whittaker and Arlen Lopez of Cuba.
But before that Frazer Clarke is in super-heavyweight action.
He’s guaranteed a bronze medal already but victory in his semi-final against Uzbekistan’s Bakhodir Jalolov means he’ll be fighting for gold.
That one is coming up before Whittaker’s bout, with Clarke set to fight at 7am.
THAT’S THE SPIRIT
And this is what Sky Brown says on what she’s planning to do next:
“Hang out with some friends, and party!”
And why not?
She’s Team GB’s youngest ever summer Olympics medallist.
Speaking to the BBC, here’s Sky Brown’s reaction to winning bronze in the Skateboarding park event:
“This is incredible – it feels unreal I’m so happy to be here, I’m blessed.
“I was definitely bumped, I fell twice, that made the last run feel even better. All the girls are ripping it, it was insane, it was a super sick final.”
STILL TO COME
There’s still plenty of action left to unfold this morning on what is Day Twelve of Tokyo 2020.
In Boxing Team GB’s Frazer Clarke takes on Uzbekistan’s Bakhodir Jalolov in a Men’s super-heavyweight semi-final bout.
Clarke is guaranteed at least a bronze, but a win this morning would see him through to fight for gold.
And Ben Whittaker is also in Boxing action.
He’s in the light-heavyweight gold medal match against Arlen Lopez of Cuba, with that one set to start just after 7.30am.
There’s also Sailing and Track Cycling to come from 7.30am, with Jason Kenny in action in the Men’s sprint.
Sport Climbing and Showjumping then round off the morning, with plenty of medal hopes left for Team GB.
THE BRONZE MEDAL MOMENT
And here’s the moment Sky Brown and her dad realised she had done enough to win the bronze medal.
Sky Brown celebrates with her bronze medal.
After becoming Team GB’s youngest ever summer Olympian she now becomes Team GB’s youngest ever summer Olympic medallist.
13 years and 28 days old.
Sky Brown’s bronze medal is Team GB’s 44th medal of the Games so far.
That’s only 23 off the record haul from Rio 2016.
And there’s more to come later this morning, with Ben Whittaker guaranteed at least a silver in the Men’s light-heavyweight boxing.
His gold medal match against Arlen Lopez of Cuba is coming up just after 7.30am.
