The beach volleyball competition at Horse Guards Parade has proved a big hit in the London Games but sadly the women's event comes to its conclusion on Day 12 with a final that everyone expects to be between the Americans and the Brazilians. Also involving sand, the women's long jump final at the Olympic Stadium could well see a podium opportunity for GB's Shara Proctor. The big event of the athletics programme is the women's 400m hurdles final for which local girl Perri Shakes-Drayton is one of the favourites to take gold in her native east London. Not bad for a self-confessed Nando's chicken fanatic... Also in the Olympic Stadium, China's Liu Xiang will hope to take gold after heartbreak in Beijing when, as defending champion, he pulled up with a hamstring injury, while Jamaica's Veronica Campbell-Brown is going for a third consecutive gold in the women's 200m. GB's Tim Brabants defends his K1 1,000m canoe sprint crown at Eton Dorney while Savannah Marshall could become Britain's first women boxing medalist in the 75km category at ExCeL, which also hosts the men's table tennis final.
