It’s another final that will pit the best of Australia against the best of the USA in the pool, but this time it’s in the women’s 100-meter backstroke during Tuesday, July 27th’s action at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The women’s 100-meter backstroke is another battle of Aussie vs. American, as Kaylee McKeown takes on Regan Smith for gold. McKeown is the favorite at -175 at DraftKings Sportsbook, with Smith the +100 underdog in the head-to-head. Last night at the Tokyo Aquatic Centre, Ariarne Titmus knocked off Katie Ledecky in the 400-meter freestyle in a similar AUS vs. USA matchup.

McKeown is the current world record holder at just 19-years-old, breaking Smith’s 2019 World Championships swim of 57.57 at the Australian Olympic trials this year with a 57.45. They’ll go head-to-head for gold tonight in the center of the pool.

Also tonight the gold medals will be awarded in the 100-meter breaststroke for both men and women, as well as the 100-meter backstroke for men.
