Clare Balding and John Inverdale introduce more action from the pool in the swimming finals, including the women's 4x200m freestyle relay and men's 4x200m freestyle relay. The hectic schedule in the pool ends with two relays. Olympic champions Australia will defend their women's 4x200m title but they are without the injured Stephanie Rice and face an English team that can call on the likes of Jo Jackson and Rebecca Adlington. Australia should be favourites in the men's event, having won bronze both at the 2008 Olympics and the 2009 World Championships, but they were beaten by both England and Scotland four years previously in Melbourne. The opening round of the men's 100m gets under way in the athletics, with England's European silver medallist Mark Lewis-Francis among the early favourites in the absence of world-class Jamaicans Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell.
