Olympic Games: Queen event, 5 out of 5 and possible world record, the 5 events not to be missed this Sunday


This Sunday is a day of medals which will culminate with the final of the 100m men, where the successor of Usain Bolt will be known.

100m men, who will succeed Bolt?

(Semi-finals at 11:15 a.m. and final at 12:45 p.m.)

To discover

  • The full Olympic program

  • The Olympic medal table

This is the queen event, the one everyone expects at the Olympics.

Even if this year we will not feel this suspended silence before the start of the race, this 100m final is of particular interest.

Since after years of domination by Usain Bolt, a new champion will come to glean the Olympic gold medal in the 100m.

Who will be the first to cross the finish line from Brommel, Simbrine or De Grasse?

The French Jimmy Vicaut is also to follow, qualified for the semi-finals, he can hope to reach the final.

Men's foil per team, a new medal to come in fencing (Final at 12.50 p.m.)

If judo brought us back a shovelful of medals, the French fencing team is also successful in Tokyo.

After Cannone's gold, women's team silver in foil and saber, but also Brunet's bronze medal, the good week can continue with team foil.

And the foilists are there.

After Egypt in the quarterfinals, the Blues dominated Japan in the half (45-42) and will be opposed to Russia in the final.

21st medal assured for France.

France - Norway (hand), the Blues to conclude perfectly the hens (9:15)

It is a last match without real stake which awaits the Blues.

Brilliantly qualified for the rest of the Olympic tournament, the French handball players, who will face Bahrain in the quarter-finals, still wish to end their group stage on a high note by signing a 5th victory in as many games.

Something that will not necessarily be easy, since they will find on their way a team from Norway which will fight hard, which needs a victory to ensure its qualification in the quarter-finals.

Women's triple jump final, Yulimar Rojas in pursuit of the world record (1:15 p.m.)

Qualified for the final on her first jump, Yulimar Rojas wasted no time and clearly shows her ambitions for the future.

Holder of the indoor world record, the Venezuelan jumped 7cm from Innessa Kravets' world record last May.

Rojas therefore aims to beat the 15.50m established in 1995 by the Ukrainian.

On the French side, even if winning a medal seems complicated, we will be able to follow Rouguy Diallo, who qualified for the final in 8th position with a jump to 14.29 m.

Women's asymmetric bars final, Dos Santos to make people forget their failure in the overall standings (12:25 p.m.)

While Mélanie de Jesus dos Santos dreamed of creating the feat, the 21-year-old Frenchwoman had disappointed with an 11th place in the general classification and in particular a failed passage on the beam. This Sunday, on uneven bars, the gymnast will no doubt be keen to make people forget her poor performance and why not win a medal. For this, she will have a lot to do and will have to deal with the presence of Sunisa Lee and Angelina Melnikova, respectively gold and bronze medalists in the all-around.
