Full track and field schedule for Wednesday, August 4th in the Tokyo 2021 Summer Olympics

We take a look at the full track and field schedule on the slate for Wednesday, August 4th at the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

There are six finals in track and field tonight from Olympic Stadium at the 2020 Tokyo Games, and one American is a strong favorite to head home with gold.

In the women’s 400m hurdles Sydney McLaughlin of Team USA is a -330 favorite over the +300 underdog of Femke Bol of the Netherlands. McLaughlin is the world record holder in the event, and after the men’s record in the same event was shattered by Norway’s Karsten Warholm, there’s a good chance the University of Kentucky grad beats her world best 51.90 depending on track conditions this evening.

One of the more open finals of the Olympic meet is the men’s 800m, with Kenya’s Ferguson Cheruiyot Rotich the favorite at +120, and Nijel Amos of Botswana the second choice at +260 in an eight-man field. Clayton Murphy is the fourth-choice at +800, but will have a strong chance at a medal in a race that likely comes down to the last 50 meters.

The men’s 200m final is the last event of the night, and Canada’s Andre De Grasse is the chalk at +140. There are three Americans in the eight-man race, with Noah Lyles the top choice amongst them at +160 after his near-disaster in the semifinals. Kenneth Bednarek is +330, while Erriyon Knighton isn’t listed at DraftKings Sportsbook .. because he’s just 17 years old!

If he’s the winner, it’s refunds for everyone that wagered on someone else in the race.
