Great Britain enjoyed double relay gold on day eight of the Tokyo Olympics but there was disappointment for sprinter Dina Asher-Smith as she missed out on a place in the women’s 100 metres final and withdrew from the 200m.
Team GB’s medal tally stood at 28 by the end of Saturday’s action. The day got off to a golden start as the mixed triathlon team triumphed to give Jonny Brownlee a first-ever Olympic winner’s medal.
There was further morning success over in the pool, as the 4x100m mixed medley relay team of Anna Hopkin, Kathleen Dawson, James Guy and Adam Peaty were victorious ahead of China and Australia. Emma Wilson and Karriss Artingstall added bronze medals in the women’s windsurfer RS:X and women’s featherweight boxing competition respectively.
