Alice Kinsella is back and ready to quell disappointment from Tuesday’s women’s all-around final with two shots at gymnastics gold.
Add to that the inspirational story of Cyrille Tchatchet, who is aiming for a fairytale ending with a medal in men’s weightlifting.
Two days after her tearful exit from the women’s all-around title fight when she fell on the beam, Birmingham-born Alice Kinsella returns in search of individual apparatus gold on the same apparatus as well as on the women’s floor.
Meanwhile, Jake Jarman, who is in the vault final, and Joe Fraser, who competes on parallel bars and high bar, finished their games with four gold medals each.
There are stories of sporting redress and then there is the case of Cyrille Tchatchet, who left the Cameroonian team during the 2014 games, contemplated suicide and was eventually arrested and sought asylum. Tchatchet is now a mental health nurse in the West Midlands, the proud holder of a British passport and a medal contender in the men’s 96kg weightlifting category.
Heather Knight could return to captain England against South Africa after missing the five-wicket win against Sri Lanka with persistent hip problems.
Alice Capsey should be fine after starring over the weekend despite a black eye she suffered in warm-up. Another win for the hosts would put them on the brink of the semifinals.
