Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: GB clinch sailing GOLD, Sky Brown with BRONZE, GB with boxing silver, KJT withdraws

TEAM GB have high expectations going into Day 12 in Tokyo.

In sailing Hannah Mills became the most decorated female sailor in Olympic history as she won a gold medal with parter Eilidh McIntyre in the 470.

Skateboarding starlet Sky Brown has clinched skateboarding BRONZE at the age of only 13, while Frazer Clarke and Ben Whittaker picked up bronze and silver, respectively, in the boxing.

In doing so, the California-based British star has become our youngest ever medallist at a Games.

She had become the youngest Brit to even COMPETE at a summer Games, surpassing by 15 days the record held by swimmer Margery Hinton from the 1928 Games.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson started her heptathlon event brilliant in the 110m hurdles but slowly deteriorated before pulling out with an Achilles injury.

Team GB's women have been thumped by the Dutch in their hockey semi-final as the 2016 silver medalists won 5-1, exacting revenge for their Rio final defeat five years ago.

Meanwhile Jason Kenny has the chance to go for another gold medal in the men's track sprint.

    Team GB star Hannah Mills became the most successful female Olympic sailor of all time as she won 470 gold alongside Eilidh McIntyre.

    Mills said: "It’s been one of the hardest weeks of my life.

    "I’m sure for Eilidh as well, just every day, not being able to eat, just nerves building up, the emotion of just we’ve done it. It’s over. We’ve done what we came here to do and it’s amazing.

    "Growing up, a lot of Olympians dreamed of being here one day and standing on top of the podium. And to do it twice with Saskia [Clark] before and Eilidh this time, I’ve had two incredible crews to sail with and I just feel incredibly lucky.

    "The team around us here have been phenomenal. Big shout out to The National Lottery and everyone who plays the lottery because without you guys, we wouldn’t be here either. The support back home has been unreal so thank you everyone"


    Belarus' Krystsina Tsimanouskaya has left Tokyo en route to Europe after resisting an attempt by her Olympic team's officials to send her home to Belarus after removing her from the Olympic Games.

    Tsimanouskaya said she could be in danger from authorities who have relentlessly cracked down on dissent.

    The 24-year-old boarded a flight to Vienna for Poland, where she has been granted asylum.

    Before leaving Japan, the sprinter said she hoped she could carry on with her career but that safety was her top priority.

    Several countries offered to help after she sought refuge in the European Union, and Poland has granted her a humanitarian visa.

    The 200m runner's stint at the Tokyo Games became an international issue after she accused Belarusian team officials of hustling her to the airport several days ago and trying to put her on a plane back home because she had criticised the team's management on social media.

    Tsimanouskaya told the Associated Press that the team officials "made it clear that, upon return home, I would definitely face some form of punishment.

    "There were also thinly disguised hints that more would await me"


    Team GB rider Tom Maher has yet to fully believe he's won a gold medal in the men's showjumping.

    Maher said: "It doesn't seem real. I think it will sink in tonight or tomorrow morning.

    "Let's just say there has been a lot of pressure in the last couple of weeks.

    "I am biased, but I believe I am on the best horse - he is an incredible horse. I am relieved it is done, and I am very happy right now"


    Team GB's Sky Brown has made history in this year's Olympic Games.

    Brown became Great Britain's youngest ever Olympic medallist at the age of 13.

    The young skateboarder won the bronze medal in Tokyo


    Team GB have climbed up to fourth place from sixth.

    Great Britain is now behind Japan and the United States, who are third and second respectively.

    China continue to lead at the top of the table


    Team GB's Nick Miller admitted he is "kind of disappointed" but will bounce back after finishing sixth in the men's hammer final.

    Miller told the BBC: "I'm kind of disappointed.

    "I couldn't quite find the rhythm. Sixth place - it is what it is.

    "I was in good shape but it just didn't happen today. We figured few things out this year, my training's good. Next year try and stay healthy all the way"


    Canada's Andre de Grasse describes his Olympic triumph as a sign he's come a long way after his recent injury hell.

    De Grasse won the gold in the men's 200m final in Tokyo.

    He told the BBC: "I've been through so much these last five years on and off the track.

    "In 2016 I was a kid and inexperienced but now I have so many expectations to come away with medals and I wanted to show the world all my injuries are behind me and I can bring home a gold medal."


    Team GB rider Ben Maher praised his horse Explosion W after his gold medal triumph.

    Maher told the BBC: "The horse is like lightning, the second and third jump weren't as fast as I wanted them to be and then I took a big risk across the middle and normally Explosion and I we read each others mind, we're very in sync and he did question me in the middle.

    "I felt a slight hesitation but he can do that, he grew wings, that's what sets him apart from the other horses.

    "Little bit of luck is always involved but it was incredible.

    "I'm getting married in a couple of weeks and that makes this all the more special - but my fiance knows she has to share me with Explosion"
