Tokyo 2020 Olympics: USA beat Australia in beach volleyball, cycling, modern pentathlon and more – live! | Sport


And here are some highlights for Team USA on Day 14:

10.30pm EDT: women’s beach volleyball gold medal match

Alix Klineman and April Ross – the American successors to Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings – face Australia’s Taliqua Clancy and Mariafe Artacho del Solar. This is Ross’s third Olympics; she’s won silver (in 2012 with Jennifer Kessy) and bronze (in ‘16 with Walsh Jennings). Klineman, 31, partnered with Ross the year after the Rio de Janeiro Games, and this will be her first Olympics. Clancy and Artacho del Solar both competed in Rio, though they weren’t partnered, and neither medaled.

7.30am EDT: men’s 125kg wrestling final

Gable Steveson, an American with little to no international experience, will wrestle Geno Petriashvili of Georgia, a three-time world champion who took bronze in Rio. Steveson, a student at the University of Minnesota, is the reigning Division I champion, and he’s made easy work of his opponents thus far in Tokyo.

8.10am EDT: women’s sport climbing combined lead final

Brooke Raboutou has been climbing competitively since childhood and holds the distinction of being the youngest female climber to achieve several milestones. She’ll compete in the final for the speed and bouldering events earlier in the day, and the lead event will be the final to decide the medals.

8.35am EDT: women’s 400m final

Allyson Felix has two more chances to win a medal in Tokyo and become the most decorated woman in Olympic track and field history. (Felix has nine medals thus far, and a 10th would also tie her with Carl Lewis for the most of any American track and field athlete.) On Friday, she’ll race in the 400m event, where she’ll compete against fellow American Quanera Hayes. Both women have two-year-olds and have spoken out about the challenges of being mothers who are still competing. This is Hayes’s first Olympics.

9.30am EDT: women’s 4x100m relay final

Team USA is coming off two straight gold medals in the event, in Rio and London. In the semi-final, Javianne Oliver, Teahna Daniels, English Gardner and Aleia Hobbs teamed up to place second in their heat, and the US will have a chance at a medal in the final. Their stiffest competitor will be Jamaica, which they beat in the semi-final, but there’s a wrinkle: Jamaica raced there without two of their speediest women, Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who will compete in the final.
