Tokyo 2020 Olympics: GB win gold in triathlon relay, plus athletics, swimming and more – live! | Sport

Must read


Thanks Tom. Hello everyone. Deep breath.

There’s not just a lot going on right now, there’s too much. If some of it could just chill out for a while, I’d be grateful.

Attention here will be trained on the pool for the next couple of hours. It’s the penultimate day in the Tokyo Aquatics Centre and there are four golds up for grabs:

  • 10.30am local time – Men’s 100m butterfly final 🥇- Caeleb Dressel (USA) v Kristof Milak (HUN) should be a belter.
  • 10.37 am – Women’s 200m backstroke final 🥇– Kaylee McKeown and Emily Seebohm are medal hopes for Australia, Phoebe Bacon and Rhyan White for the USA.
  • 10.46am – Women’s 800m freestyle final 🥇- Katie Ledecky (USA) v Ariarne Titmus (AUS) round three.
  • 11.43am – Mixed 4x100m medal relay final 🥇

In amongst all that we have the semi-finals for the men’s and women’s 50m freestyle.

Away from the pool there’s track and field heats to keep an eye on, plenty of team sports, and the exhilarating BMX freestyle. As always, if you think something deserves more attention than it is receiving, shoot me an email or tweet.

All set? No, me neither, oh well – in we go…

One highlight from today’s action-packed program at the pool is the mixed medley relay – the first time the men and women have swum together in a relay at the Olympics. Australia are having a bumper relay meet, winning four medals from four relays, and are hoping to continue that streak. I dived into Australia’s ‘relay project’ for a weekend long-read.




BMX freestyle makes its Olympic debut this weekend. Riders have 60 second runs to pull all the tricks and flips they can think of in a skate park arena. It is truly remarkable. Before the Games I interviewed Australia’s gold medal favourite in the men’s event, Logan Martin, and he described it as ‘gymnastics on a bike’. For those watching from home, the BMX freestyle is highly-recommended. The seeding rides are today, followed by the medal rides tomorrow.
