Track and Field
With the Tokyo Olympic Games winding down, the next two days are ALL ABOUT FINALS!
ALSO, Team Canada WILL be competing in the 4x400m relay finals on Saturday morning! The quartet of Alicia Brown, Sage Watson, Madeline Price and Kyra Constantine finished fifth in their semi final heat but are hopeful for a podium-level performance in the finals.
But of course, they have fierce competition! The U.S. relay team breezed through the semis to lock in a final spot and six-time Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix is expected to join the U.S. team in Saturday’s final, in her fifth and final Olympic Games.
Like I said, there are a whole lot of medals up for grabs and Canadian Andrea Seccafien has the chance to reach a podium finish in the women’s 10,000m finals! I’ll also be cheering on Canadians, Malindi Elmore, Dayna Pidhoresky and Natasha Wodak, all competing in the women’s marathon event.
