Full track and field schedule for Friday, August 6th – DraftKings Nation

There are eight medals on tap to be handed out on the penultimate day of racing inside Tokyo Olympic Stadium at the 2020 Games.

Maria Andrejczyk of Poland is the +120 favorite in the women’s javelin at DraftKings Sportsbook, but keep an eye on Team USA’s Maggie Malone at +400, the third choice by the odds. 12 competitors made the final which begins at 7:50 p.m. ET on Thursday night.

The women’s 400m will feature Allyson Felix going for even more history as one of the premiere American stars of all-time in athletics. But she’ll be well behind Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas on the odds boards. Miller-Uibo is -175 to win the Bahamas first gold in this race, whereas Felix will start in Lane 9 and have to run two full curves as a +1200 underdog.

And tonight Team USA looks to avoid another disaster in the relays, but they’re the second choice in the women’s 4x100m. Jamaica is the -500 favorite, with the USA and Great Britain both +550 to take home gold.

Also there’s race walking with a 50k men’s and 20k women’s race, but that’s not a real sport and everyone cheats.
