The Tokyo Olympics start on July 23. The Olympic event was predicted a year ago, but was postponed by the pandemic. There will be 33 different disciplines for 339 medals in 42 countries across Japan.
The 100-meter dash, as well as the 200- or 400-meter disciplines for men and women, will give life to the Tokyo Olympic Stadium, where the Americans will challenge the British sprinters.
39 gold medals will be distributed on the penultimate day of the Olympics, which makes August 7 the busiest day of the Olympic Games. Meanwhile, the first gold medal will be awarded on July 24 for shooting (female) in the 10m rifle discipline.
