Carrington on her way to 2nd gold

Two controlled performances have secured champion kayaker Lisa Carrington a place in the K1 500m finals early tomorrow morning.

Carrington might become the first New Zealand woman to win multiple gold medals at a single Olympic games.

And today, the best female golfers in the world tee off in pursuit of a gold medal, the first in the women's game since 1900. Lydia Ko is one of the favourites and is on a roll.

Olympic reporter Michelle Pickles is in Rio and joined Paul Henry live this morning.
