Laurel Hubbard will make Olympic history
Day 10 of the Tokyo Olympics sees track cycling begin as well as more gymnastics and athletics, while New Zealand’s Laurel Hubbard will make history as the first transgender athlete to compete at a Games. Hubbard will be taking part in the women’s +87kg weightlifting final (11.50am BST). Britain’s Emily Campbell also competes and has a medal chance as the European champion.
The Izu Velodrome will see its first medal races in the women’s team sprint (10.09sou), which Britain won’t be competing in, instead focusing on qualifying for the men’s and women’s team pursuit finals. The Ariake Arena will host three gymnastics finals (from 11.30am): men’s rings, women’s floor – which Simone Biles pulled out from yesterday – and the men’s vault.
Women’s hockey quarter-finals (1.30am and 10.30am), sailing medal races (4-10sou) and the women’s football semi-finals (9am and 12pm) are also on the agenda.
