Sports Mole previews day 13 at London 2012 and selects the events in which Team GB are likely to add to their superb tally of medals.

With just four days of the London 2012 Olympic Games remaining, Team GB continue to fly high in the medals table.

Sports Mole has selected seven events where the host nation could add to their tally on Thursday. A certain Usain Bolt is also going for gold.

Open water swimming: Women's 10km marathon at noon
Team GB's Keri-Anne Payne won Olympic silver in this event four years ago. Since then the 22-year-old has won two World Championship titles and, despite struggling with back and shoulder injuries earlier this year, she begins today's race as the favourite.

Equestrian: Individual dressage at 12.30pm
The British team that won gold on Tuesday will be broken up to compete against each other at Greenwich Park this afternoon. Home hopes are, understandably, very high.

Sailing: 470 class medal race at 1pm
Great Britain's Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are guaranteed at least silver. However, a win in this race could yet see the pair pip Australia's Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Belcher to gold.

Boxing: Women's flyweight final at 4.30pm
Following her semi-final win over Mary Kom, Britain's Nicola Adams has the chance to become the sport's first-ever Olympic champion. The Leeds-born 29-year-old faces a tough opponent in the shape of three-time world champion Ren Cancan of China.

Athletics: 800m final at 8pm
Andrew Osagie starts in lane two, just over a metre away from Kenya's world record holder David Rudisha (lane four). The Brit will do very well to have closed that gap by the time he reaches the finish line.

Athletics: 200m final at 8.55pm
Reigning Olympic champion Bolt, who is the current world record holder with a time of 19.19 seconds, recently claimed that he was capable of breaking the 19-seconds mark. If he achieves that feat then tonight's final will undoubtably be one of the best spectacles of the Games so far.

Taekwondo finals at 10.15pm
There could be British interest in tonight's women's 57kg (10.15pm) and men's 68kg (10.30pm) finals. Fourth seed Jade Jones must first defeat Serbia's Dragana Gladovic (7.55pm), while Liverpool's Martin Stamper begins his potential route to the final against Mexico's Erick Osornio Nunez (10.45am).
