02:25 MEN'S 800M FINAL

The Olympics four years ago had an incredible 800m final, as seven out of the eight athletes broke their own personal bests. However, the show was stolen by Kenya's David Rudisha, who fired a new world record with a time of 1:40.91. The reigning world- and Olympic champion is the biggest favourite in Rio, leading this year's rankings with a time of 1:43.35.

It's a shame that this season's second, third and fourth best runners won't be appearing in  Rio, as the trio of Nicholas Kipkoech (1:43.37), Jonathan Kitilit (1:43.48) and Donavan Brazier (1:43.55) are all sidelined. Rudisha's number one challenger in Rio is the only 19-year old Alfred Kipketer, whose season's best is only four tenths of a second worse than Rudisha's.

However, there are plenty of medal candidates in Rio. Poland's Adam Kszczot won the European Championship in Amsterdam earlier this summer, and the Pole also has a silver from last year's world championships. Out of the athletes participating in the Olympics Pierre-Ambroise Bosse of France has the third best result this season. The Frenchman was only fifth in Amsterdam, and also finished in the same position in the world championships.

A potential dark horse could be the silver medalist of London, Nijel Amos. Another surprise package could be Amel Tuka, who came fourth in the European Championships and third in last year's world championships.

02:45 WOMEN'S 400M FINAL

 

The United States against Bahama. This will most likely be how the women's 400m Olympic gold will be settled. Shaunae Miller has the best time this season, but with three Olympic medals in the 200 metres to her name Allyson Felix is right behind her. Miller and Felix already battled it out for the 400m gold in the world championships last year, when Felix edged her rival.

Another American, Phyllis Francis is the only other woman to go under 50 seconds appearing at the Olympics. Jamaica's Stephenie Ann McPherson and USA's Natasha Hastings are others most likely to be involved in the battle for the medals, but the three are on a level below the top two women.

Last year's bronze medalist Shericka Jackson's name is also worth remembering. Christine Day came fourth in that race, while McPherson came fifth and Francis seventh. The reigning European champion Libania Grenot could be a real dark horse in Rio's final.

The silver medalist in 2012 and Olympic champion in 2008, Team GB's  Christine Ohuruogu has struggled in other major championships, but in the Olympics she's been pure steel. The veteran athlete will probably be breaking her season's best in Rio yet again.
