To make things easier, here is the Olympic games Day 5 schedule for all those people who struggle to keep up with everything going on. We have potential for medals at 10:50pm in the rowing, (go Southland!) and the Men's team track cycling throughout the night starting well into Friday NZ Time, while there are plenty of crucial lead-up races to finals, especially in the rowing.
I am picking another medal for us on Day 5! Although I am not sure what colour Nathan Cohen and Joseph Sullivan's medal will be, but while I would love to see it become a gold medal, I think it will be silver at best. It would be the first ever Olmypic medal won by a Southlander, although there is a chance that it won't be the last at this Olympic Games.
There is a shot at a sneaky bronze by the NZ Men's Track Cycling team, but I am not holding my breath!
