Olympics: Gold For GB's Dujardin In Dressage
Britain's Charlotte Dujardin has won her second gold medal of the Games in the individual freestyle dressage - with the bronze going to team-mate Laura Bechtolsheimer.
The 27-year-old is only the fourth British female athlete to win double gold at one Games after Dame Kelly Holmes, Rebecca Adlington and Laura Trott.
Enfield-born Dujardin, the last rider to go, also set a new Olympic record with her score of 90.089%.
Dujardin lived up to her favourite's status on Velagro as she relegated Dutch rider Adelinde Cornelissen to second place.
Later today Team GB's Nicola Adams will be aiming to become the first woman ever to win Olympic boxing gold.
The 29-year-old from Leeds will get her chance when she takes on China's Ren Cancan in the women's flyweight final at the ExCeL arena.
It will be a key moment for women's boxing, which is making its Games debut at London 2012.
"I've been training for this moment since I was 12 years old and to think it is finally here is just incredible," said Adams.
Britain's Keri-Anne Payne was hoping for gold in the 10km outdoor swim at Hyde Park but could only manage fourth.
Payne, the reigning world champion and a silver medallist in Beijing, finished just 0.4 seconds behind third-placed Martina Grimaldi from Italy.
The gruelling race was won by Hungary's Eva Risztov who held off a late challenge from American Haley Anderson.
Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are assured of at least a silver medal in the men's 470 class sailing at Weymouth, although their race was delayed due to light wind.
Hannah Mills and Sasia Clark will compete for gold in the women's event.
Despite a lean day on Wednesday, Team GB are still in third place in the medal table with 23 golds, 13 silvers and 14 bronzes - their best haul since 1908.
The highlight of today's programme will undoubtedly be the final of the men's 200m at the Olympic Stadium.
Having already won the 100m, Usain Bolt will be aiming to become the first man in the history of the Games to retain both sprint titles.
The Jamaican says he is confident of victory but he faces stiff competition, not least from his training partner Yohan Blake who was runner-up in the 100m final.
Double-amputee Oscar Pistorius is out of the Games after South Africa failed to make the final of the men's 4x400m relay.
They were eliminated in the first heat after their second-leg runner collided with a Kenyan and fell, leaving Pistorius waiting with his hand outstretched for a baton that never came.
As the first amputee to compete at the Olympics, he had high hopes of a medal after the South African relay team won silver at the world championships last year.
Britain's quartet of Nigel Levine, Conrad Williams, Jack Green and Martyn Rooney made it through to the final after finishing second in the same heat.
Meanwhile, Games organisers Locog say 6.9 million spectators had attended events as of yesterday, with 2.1 million watching sport in the Olympic Park.
