The second part should be at least as exciting.

On the ninth day, the supreme discipline of athletics is on the program with the men's 100-meter run.

Olympic news from Sunday: Gold chance for swimming star Wellbrock and tennis ace Zverev

Yesterday was a mixed day for the German Olympic team, only the judoka mixed team provided bronze for precious metal.

The consequence: Germany tumbled out of the top 10 in the medal table.

Things should now be much better on Sunday and the chances of winning gold are huge.

Alexander Zverev can write German tennis history at the Olympic Games. The Hamburger will face Karen Khachanov in the final (from 9.30 a.m. CEST). After his semi-final victory against number one Novak Djokovic, the 24-year-old Zverev is the clear favorite against the Russian and, if successful, would be the first male individual Olympic champion in tennis from Germany. Steffi Graf triumphed in the women's race in Seoul in 1988. "I hope that I can bring gold for Germany," said Zverev.

At the end of the pool swimming competitions, the appearance of double world champion Florian Wellbrock over 1500 meters is eagerly awaited.

The 23-year-old barely missed a medal over 800 meters, the longer distances suit him even better.

The German Swimming Association is hoping for the first men's medal since Michael Groß 33 years ago.

Olympic news from Sunday: 100 meter final in Tokyo - Bolt successor wanted

In athletics, the men's 100 meter decision is one of the Olympic highlights.

We are looking for the successor of the Jamaican Usain Bolt, who triumphed over the course three times in a row at the Olympics.

The Canadian Andre De Grasse, who won bronze over 100 meters and silver over 200 meters in Rio 2016, won his prelim in 9.91 seconds just as confidently as Akani Simbine from South Africa (10.08).

Jamaican Yohan Blake (10.06), winner of the 100 meter silver in London in 2012, came second in his heat.

The semi-finals will take place on Sunday before the final (2:50 p.m. / CEST) on the same day.

Don't miss a thing here.
