9:50pm - Hockey: First quarter done in the hockey and the Kiwis are up against it. Only 1-0 down but all Netherlands in the first 15m. 

9:46pm - Equestrian: So NZ has one rider to come (Tim Price), as does Australia, France and Great Britain. The Brits look to have teams gold wrapped up.

9:06pm - Equestrian: Jesse Campbell sitting in sixth spot with 20 of the 51 riders completing their jumps.

8:59pm - Cycling: The Brits record the fourth best time with a 3.47.507 so the Kiwis avoid Denmark in the semi-finals and will race Italy for a spot in the gold medal race.

8:52pm - Equestrian: The great thing about Campbell's run is he only added .40 of a point to New Zealand's overall total. The Kiwis still sit fourth behind Australia, France and Great Britain. 

8:51pm - Cycling: The Australian team had a rider crash out after the handle bar snapped on his bike. That puts them out and the Kiwis will ride for a medal tomorrow regardless of how the Brits go in the final run. 

8:49pm - Equestrian: Great run from Campbell to sit third overall with 17 riders gone - he's there or thereabouts to make the top 25

8:48pm - Equestrian: Jesse Campbell on Diachello is out in the course.

8:43pm - Cycling: Denmark have smashed the Italians time with a 3.45.014 - good enough for a new Olympic Record. The Kiwis down to third now with two teams to go. 

8:38pm - Equestrian: Jesse Campbell about 10 or so minutes away from jumping. 

8:36pm - Cycling: The Kiwis took the lead over the Italians for a couple of laps but fell off at the end.  They are second with three teams to come. Their time of 3:46.079 would have broken the old Olympic record that Italy broke a few minutes ago. 

8:34pm - Cycling: NZ second of five through 3000m 

8:33pm - Cycling: NZ second of five through the first 1000m. 

8:31pm - Cycling: The highly-rated Kiwi men's pursuit team begin their run.  Need a top four finish minimum.

7:50pm - Cycling: Great Britain finished second fastest with a laser quick 4.09.022. NZ finishes sixth and will race Australia in the next round. In a convulated system, the Kiwis can still reach the bronze medal ride off if the record one of the best times from the bottom four teams, and the two losing teams in the top four. 

7:45pm - Diving: Anton Down-Jenkins 16th after Round 4 with a 252.75 total - good enough tp qualify for the semi-finals if he can hold his spot. 

7:44pm - Cycling: The USA knock the Kiwis down to fifth in the women's team pursuit, so New Zealand won't be winning a medal in this event.

7:36pm - Cycling: Canada goes slower than the Kiwis with a 4.15.832. New Zealand still fourth but two quick teams to come. 

7:32pm - Diving: Anton Down-Jenkins records an impressive 69.75 on his fourth dive. That could get him back in the hunt for top 18 with two dives to go.

7:30pm - Cycling: The Australian team was on track to top the Kiwis early doors, but faded at the end and are now fifth. So the Kiwis still in the medal hunt but Great Britain are very quick. 

7:24pm - Cycling: The Kiwis go 4th fastest with a 4.12.536 with four teams to come. Only the top four will have a chance at riding for a medal.

6:39pm - Diving

Down-Jenkins steps up for his second dive, and he scores 60.00, giving him 127.50 after his first two.

That's enough for 10th place for now.

6:26pm - Diving

At the end of the first round, Down-Jenkins sits in a three-way tie for 15th place with a score of 67.50.

That'd be enough to qualify, but there's still more rounds to come.

Round two is about to get underway.

6:13pm - Diving

Down-Jenkins steps up. Commentators describe his first effort as "reasonable."

Just waiting for the score, and it's 67.50, enough for eighth equal for now.

6:10pm - Diving

Great Britain's Jack Laugher takes the lead with a first up score of 83.30.

Down-Jenkins not far away.

6:07pm - Diving

Mexico's Rommel Pacheco Marrufo leads early with a first up effort of 76.50.

5:38pm - Sailing

And Belgium win, Germany finish second, Austria third. NZ fourth, so they miss out on the semi-final.

Into heat three of five now. Carrington is scheduled for the final run at 12:58pm.

Morena, sports fans. Brace yourself for another hectic day of action from Tokyo, as Lisa Carrington looks to make an early statement in her kayak, Messrs Burling and Tuke look to close out their title defence, and Laurel Hubbard - with the eyes of the world watching - takes centre stage in the weightlifting.
Carrington will be the first Kiwi into the fray for Monday, as she begins her quest for a third Olympic gold medal in the K1 200m heats at 12:58pm.


Kia ora, good morning and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Tokyo Olympics, on a day that will witness a slice of history and (hopefully) more gold for New Zealand.

But first, two-time canoe gold medallist Lisa Carrington will try to add to her K1 200 success at London 2012 and Rio 2016, while also balancing a schedule that includes the solo 500, K2 500 and K4 500.

On Monday, she faces heats and quarter-finals of her specialty event, and combines with Caitlin Regal for heats and quarter-finals in the two-seat boat.

If you're counting, that's a possible four races in little more than three hours.

This evening, America's Cup stars Peter Burling and Blair Tuke will try to repeat the 49er sailing gold medal they won at Rio five years ago, leading into the double-point medal race off Enoshima.

Then, later tonight, Laurel Hubbard - the world's most scrutinised athlete - takes the stage in the women's +87kg weightlifting, becoming the first transgender athlete to compete at the Olympics.

Don't sleep on our equestrian riders either - Tim Price sits fifth and the NZ team are fourth heading into the final showjumping discipline, so medals are on offer there too.

Kiwi canoe star Carrington eyes toughest Olympic opponent - herself

Kiwi canoe star Lisa Carrington knows the only thing stopping her from winning Olympic gold next week will be herself.

The 32-year-old believes achieving victory in her third Games will be determined by her mental edge.

Carrington has been here before in the heat of Olympic battle and has always stood up, winning  two Olympic golds and a casual five world championships

She knows exactly what's required to do it again.

"When you want to go out there and perform your best, it can be a bit scary, to trust yourself that you'll be able to do it," Carrington tells Newshub.

"But ultimately, it's about getting over that hurdle and going, ‘you know what, I'm just going to do my best today and see what I can do’.

"The more I have learnt about how I can perform, how I go under pressure, the more I learn about myself.

"It's just kind of deepening how well I can turn up."

But turning up this time will be different - she's asking more from herself.

She'll feature in four events and should it all go to plan, the Kiwi could contest two gold medal races in an hour.

"I'll be able to get from point A to point B, out of the water warmed down, getting the ice-vest on, that type of thing... minute by minute has been planned out."

Carrington's a mentor to the next class of canoe sprinters.

They've just spent the last two weeks in camp with her and they've watched closely.

"I think the main thing Lisa brings is happiness to the squad," says teammate Max Brown. "It’s just really cool to see that you can be that good, but still be a great person."

And Carrington is primed to prove just how good she is in the coming days.
