One of the most anticipated showdowns of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics is set to take place Sunday night.
United States star swimmer Katie Ledecky will be competing in the women’s 400-meter freestyle, but this year it won’t be a given that she’s taking home the gold. Australia’s Ariarne Titmus has been the fastest swimmer in the world in the event in 2021. Even with Ledecky posting the faster time in the prelims, this race could go to either swimmer.
That will not be the lone final event on the night. World record-holder Adam Peaty (Great Britain) will go for the gold in the men’s 100 breaststroke and Torri Huske will hope to add to the American medal count when she swims the final of the women’s 100 butterfly. The night will wrap up with the United States men locked in a close battle with Italy and Australia to claim the gold medal in the 4×100 freestyle relay.
Stock Market Pioneer will be providing live updates and highlights from each event during the second day of Olympic swimming finals.
