Tokyo Olympics: Black Ferns Sevens' shot for gold headlines Kiwi hopes for Saturday's Olympics action

The Black Ferns Sevens' quest for Olympic redemption headlines Saturday's action in Tokyo, after Friday's Kiwi medal rush.

Five years on from falling at the final hurdle, losing the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics final to Australia, the Black Ferns Sevens could have the chance to claim their - and New Zealand's - first rugby sevens gold medal.

The Black Ferns Sevens face Fiji in the tournament semi-final from 2pm (NZ time), with the best-case scenario being the gold medal match at 9pm, and the worst being the bronze match at 8:30pm.

Since that defeat in Rio though, the Black Ferns Sevens have been the sport's most dominant side, and currently hold both the Commonwealth Games gold medal and the Rugby World Cup Sevens title. 

Olympic gold is the only thing missing from their trophy cabinet.

Elsewhere, the triathlon team of Nicole van der Kaay, Ainsley Thorpe, Tayler Reid and men's bronze medallist Hayden Wilde will compete in the team event, beginning at 10:30am.

Ryan Fox has a busy day on his hands, finishing his second round of the men's golf from 10:45am after it was postponed due to bad weather, before teeing off for his third round at 12:30pm.

The Black Sticks women close out pool play of the hockey tournament, facing China, needing victory to ensure a spot in the quarter-finals, also starting at 12:30pm.

Equestrian Tim Price resumes his quest for a medal from 1:38pm, competing in the eventing individual and team dressage.

Weightlifter Cameron McTaggart is another with a potential shot at a medal, lifting in the men's 81kg preliminary rounds at 2:50pm in hope of making the final at 6:50pm.

Four Kiwi boats carry on in the sailing regatta, with the 49er duo of Peter Burling and Blair Tuke, Josh Junior in the finn class, Alex Maloney and Molly Meech in the 49erFX and Micah Wilkinson and Erica Dawson in the Nacra 17. 

Junior races twice, his seventh and eighth of the regatta, while the other three pairs all have three races each, all starting from 3:05pm.

Trampolinist Dylan Schmidt is another with a chance at a medal on Saturday as the men's qualification and final both take place, starting from 4pm.

Last, but certainly not least, are the OlyWhites, who will look to keep their historic run going in the men's football. 

Danny Hay's side have already twice made history at this Games, becoming the first New Zealand men's team to win an Olympic match - beating South Korea 1-0 - before advancing from pool play after a 0-0 draw with Romania.

Led by Premier League striker Chris Wood, the OlyWhites will have their work cut out for them against hosts Japan in the men's football quarter-final, beginning at 9pm.
