How New Zealand athletes fared at the London Olympics overnight on Day 3, Monday evening to Tuesday morning:
HOCKEY: Two first-half goals to South Korea's You Hyo Sik consign the Blacks Sticks men to a 2-0 defeat in the opening match at Riverbank Arena.
ROWING: The women's quad scull of EVE MACFARLANE, FIONA BOURKE, LOUISE TRAPPITT and SARAH GRAY break an oar in the repechage to miss a spot in their final; the men's quad of ROBBIE MANSON, MATTHEW TROTT, MICHAEL ARMS and JOHN STOREY win their repechage to qualify for the semi-final; doubles scull FI PATERSON and ANNA REYMER are straight into the final after finishing second in their heat; the men's four of SEAN O'NEILL, CHRIS HARRIS, JADE URU and TYSON WILLIAMS are edged out for third and must race in a repechage on Tuesday.
SWIMMING: NATALIE WIEGERSMA swims more than four seconds slower than her personal best to miss a spot in the women's 200m individual medley semi-finals.

SAILING: Finn sailor DAN SLATER wins a race to move into sixth overall at Weymouth; the men's Star pair HAMISH PEPPER and JIM TURNER also grab a win to lie 10th; Men's 49er crew PETER BURLING and BLAIR TUKE are ninth after their first day of racing; ANDREW MURDOCH in the men's Laser is ninth overall over two mid-field finishes; the women's matchracing crew of STEPHANIE HAZARD, JENNA HANSEN and SUSANNAH PYATT lie joint fourth after a win and a loss on day two; Laser Radial sailor SARA WINTHER is 27th after a poor opening day.

ANDREW NICHOLSON is ninth after a clear round, while JOCK PAGET is 14th, CAROLINE POWELL joint 24th, and JONELLE RICHARDS 31st. New Zealand is fourth in the team event.
