Full track and field schedule for Saturday, July 31st in the Tokyo 2021 Summer Olympics

We take a look at the full track and field schedule on the slate for Saturday, July 31st at the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

The race to establish the world’s fastest female will be tonight, as the 100m dash semifinals and final takes place at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica is a legend in her sport, having won gold at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012, and became the first woman sprinter with three medals in the same event after a bronze at Rio 2016.

At age 35, she goes for history that might not ever be broken, and she’s a -120 favorite to get her third gold in the sprint at DraftKings Sportsbook. When you add in world championships in 2009, 2013, 2015 and 2019, her place in history is safe no matter what happens tonight.

The men’s discus final will feature 12 athletes, including the USA’s Sam Mattis who is a longshot at +8000 to win gold. Daniel Stahl of Sweden is the -285 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and he the only man in the field to have gone over 71 meters with his best throw.

Finally history will be made with the first-ever mixed gender event for medals in Athletics, the 4x400 mixed relay. The USA has been let back in the final after an atrocious officiating decision disqualified the team during the preliminaries, and they’ll be a massive favorite to take home gold if they merely pass the baton without issues.
