After two weeks of gripping sporting theatre, you would be forgiven for thinking the Olympic Games would begin to slow down heading into the final weekend when the closing ceremony will bring the Games to a climax. But the last two days of competition will see 43 gold medals awarded and some of the biggest names in sport take their bow.

Great Britain have already reached their highest medal tally at an overseas Games, but they could eclipse the 65 they achieved four years ago in London – which is widely considered to be their best Olympic performance – and finish second in the medal table ahead of superpowers China. But when could those remaining medals be won? IBTimes UK looks at the schedule ahead.

Where to watch

Live coverage and highlights of the action is available on BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Four throughout the day and into the early hours. There are also updates available via BBC Radio Five Live.

Day 14 – Saturday 20 August

15:00 – Non Stanford, Vicky Holland and Helen Jenkins in women's triathlon: Team GB's strength in depth in the triathlon is not just restricted to the Brownlee brothers, with all three of the women's team contenders for a medal. Stanford, Holland and Jenkins are all inside the top-ten of the ITU World Triathlon Series rankings and each have the pedigree to claim gold. The United States' Gwen Jorgensoen is the favourite.

15:00 & 20:30 – Tom Daley in men's 10m platform final: The poster boy of British diving has been somewhat overshadowed in Rio amid a historic display from the team. Three medals will ensure increased funding for the next four-year cycle, but that may be without Daley, who will be 26 by the time Tokyo comes around. He will be keen to make his mark, with competition coming from defending champion David Boudia and China's Qiu Bo.

18:00 – Nicola Adams in women's 51kg final: Yorkshire's finest can etch her name in history once again by becoming the first woman to retain Olympic boxing gold and just the second in the sport's history. Adams is looking to emulate Harry Mallin, who won successive titles in the 1920s, against France's Sarah Ourahmoune, whose route to the final has been unspectacular but efficient.

01:30 – Mo Farah in men's 5000m final: Having illuminated 'Super Saturday' last week, Farah looks set to become just the second man to win the long distance double in successive Olympic Games. The Briton stumbled through qualifying to reach the 15-man final but having fully recovered will again be the man to beat.

Day 15 – Sunday 21 August

16:30 – Grant Ferguson in men's cross-country: The Scottish-born rider is Team GB's sole entry in the mountain bike competition. He finished fifth at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow but has enjoyed a stellar record at Under-23 level. The 22-year-old was only called up in July, a month after the rest of the team, and will be keen to add to Britain's success in the saddle.

19:15 – Joe Joyce in men's 91kg final: Should the 30-year-old Joyce reach the final he will have the chance to retain Britain's grip on the super heavyweight class in the last bout of the boxing competition. The Londoner can join the likes of Audley Harrison and Anthony Joshua in securing gold in the sport's blue-ribbon event, in what could be his last chance of claiming a major global title.

23:15 – Closing ceremony: The curtain comes down on the Rio Games with the closing ceremony which will bid farewell to Brazil and usher in Tokyo 2020. Pele is expected to rouse himself and appear, but the major question is who will carry the British flag? Often bestowed on the most outstanding athlete at the Games; Jason Kenny, Laura Trott and Sir Bradley Wiggins are all in contention.
