Badminton and golf kicked off on a day where security was stepped up with officials keen to prevent any negative news leaking as was the case previously with a bullet found on the equestrian arena. Fortunately, all things went to plan - and it was another day to remember.
Here, we roundup the action from all sports, and break down where the medals went on the sixth day of the games.
- South Korea's Hyejin Chang constructed an incredible performance to win gold in the women's individual archery final, cruising past Lisa Unruh of Germany.
