The Opening Ceremony is a wrap for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, and while events have been going on for three days now, things pick up steam in a big way on Saturday. The day will see 23 different sports in action, but more importantly, the first gold medals will be distributed. Qualifying rounds can be interesting given the world class nature of these athletes, but the medal round is when the pressure feels real and we get some drama.

Here, we’ll take a look at the list of events on the schedule that will be handing out medals today in the 2021 Olympics. We’ve also got a look at the full Olympics schedule here. All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
