Athletics, which is the biggest attraction of Tokyo 2020, or any Olympic Games for that matter - the track and field events - is all set to start on Friday (July 30). There are 48 medals in total up for grabs across the men's and women's disciplines, and Tokyo Olympics will see one more event than the Rio 2016 Games with the addition of a mixed relay event. Tokyo 2020: Four stars to watch out for in athletics There will be many athletes from across the globe taking part in different events with likes of Great Britain's Dina Asher-Smith, USA's Sydney McLaughlin, Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Qatar's Mutaz Essa Barshim and USA's Trayvon Bromell being some of the athletes to watch out during the Games. India too will see a 25 member team take to field led by emerging javelin throwers Neeraj Chopra and Shivpal Singh, who have raised hopes of good outcome this time around, while the 4x400 mixed relay, that makes its debut at the Games, will also see an Indian team, . . .
On Thursday (July 29), the Indian will hope for an even better outing as world champion shuttler Sindhu takes to the court with an aim to reach the quarter-finals in the Women's Singles event. Veteran boxer Mary Kom will also look to seal her quarter-final berth. Meanwhile, Shooters return to the range with Manu Bhaker and Rahi Sarnobat set for some 25m Air Pistol action as the men's hockey team will aim to make it back-to-back wins to consolidate their place in Pool A. Tokyo 2020 Olympics Medal Tally Boxer Satish Kumar, who makes his Olympics debut, will aim for a last 8 spot, while swimmer Sajan Prakash will look to bounce back after failing to go past the heats in 200m butterfly event. Golfers Anirban Lahiri and Udayan Mane will also be in action. Also in action on Thursday (July 29), will be rowers Arjun Lal Jat and Arvind Singh, while sailing duo of KC Ganapathy and Varun Thakkar will resume the racing events alongside Vishnu Saravanan and Nethra Kumanan. . . .
Jordan Henderson is under contract for two more years and is said to want an extension. But talks have reportedly not progressed, potentially opening the door for outside suitors. TOP STORY - HENDERSON COULD LEAVE ANFIELD Completing a new deal for Henderson is reportedly not a priority for Liverpool's ownership this off-season, and The Athletic says a move could be on the cards for the England international. The report cites Paris Saint-Germain head coach Mauricio Pochettino as a long-time admirer of the midfielder and notes Henderson's close friendship with Atletico Madrid 's Luis Suarez as potentially weighing in favour of a move to one of those clubs. Liverpool are said to be eager to get something in return for Henderson, should he leave, after watching Georginio Wijnaldum move to PSG on a free transfer last month. ROUND-UP - If the rumoured swap deal that would send Saul Niguez to Barcelona and Antoine Griezmann to Atletico falls through, the Daily . . .
The tropical storm approaching Tokyo has forced Olympic organisers to postpone Tuesday's rowing finals because of the danger of strong winds. The storm, named Nepartak, is due to come over eastern Japan on Tuesday, bringing rain and gusty winds to the capital. "Based on the weather forecasts received from the Tokyo2020 Olympic Games weather services, adverse weather is expected on Tuesday 27 July 2021 which would bring high winds and strong gusts creating unequal and potentially unrowable racing conditions," Olympic organisers said in a statement. The rowing finals due to have taken place on Tuesday, including the women's four and men's four events, will be moved to Wednesday. That means a knock-on effect on other finals, which will now be moved from Thursday to Friday. Organisers had already brought forward rowing heats as a "protective measure" on Saturday because of the storm. Comments Topics mentioned in this article Rowing Olympics 2020 . . .
US superstar Simone Biles pulled out of a second Tokyo Olympics gymnastics competition to protect her mental health on Wednesday, raising serious doubt over her participation in the rest of the Games. A day after her shock exit from the team event, USA Gymnastics said the 24-year-old had also withdrawn from the individual all-around competition at the Ariake Gymnastics Centre. The American arrived in Japan as one of the headline acts of the pandemic-postponed 2020 Games, shouldering an immense weight of expectation as she pursued a record-equalling nine career Olympic titles. But she withdrew from the team competition after a shaky opening vault, and her struggles mean she may be unable to add to the four gold medals she won at the 2016 Rio Games. "After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition at the Tokyo Olympic Games, in order to focus on her mental health," USA Gymnastics said in a statement.

It was the sort of day when almost everything unfolded as it was expected to for India in the Olympics. So, badminton ace P V Sindhu and seasoned archer Deepika Kumari marched into the last-16 of their respective events, debutant boxer Pooja Rani (75kg) won her easy opening bout without a fuss to enter the last-eight stage and the women's hockey team stared at early elimination after failing to upstage defending champions Great Britain. It was, in a nutshell, another mixed day for the country which is waiting for its second medal after the spectacular silver by weightlifter Mirabai Chanu on the opening day of competitions. Things started on a disappointing note with Rani Rampal's women's hockey team taking a 1-4 hammering from Britain, thoroughly punished for not grabbing its chances in the crucial match, which has now severely dented the side's quarterfinal prospects. There was some cheer in archery before things went haywire to an extent. Three-time Olympian Tarundeep Rai . . .
Getty Images The Yankees aren't having the type of season that they would have liked but that's to no fault of Aaron Judge . The outfielder has stayed relatively healthy this year and has 21 home runs and 47 RBI over 85 games. He's been a fixture amongst MLB DFS lineups despite the Yankees struggling to put runs on the board. Judge will hope to help New York gain some ground on the Rays in the Wild Card race when the teams face off at 7 p.m. ET. With one of the biggest bats in the game, Judge also has one of the biggest price tags for Wednesday's MLB DFS player pool. He will cost you $4,000 on FanDuel and $4,400 on DraftKings, so rostering him means you'll need to search for value elsewhere. With many day games on Wednesday's schedule, the MLB DFS player pool for the night games is rather limited so it would be beneficial to have some help in filling out your lineups. So, before locking in any MLB DFS picks for Wednesday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, . . .
Getty Images The Oakland Athletics and Miami Marlins have agreed on a trade that will send outfielder Starling Marte and enough cash to cover his remaining salary to Oakland, the teams announced Wednesday . ( ESPN's Jeff Passan added the financial details .) The A's are sending left-hander Jesús Luzardo back to Miami. Marte, an impending free agent, was recently featured by CBS Sports as the eighth-best potential trade candidate . Here's what we wrote at the time: The Miami Marlins have reportedly offered Starling Marte an extension worth something like $50 million over three or four years. That would seem too team-friendly to get a deal done, but perhaps the Marlins can close the gap between now and the deadline. If not, he's going to make for an enticing rental. Marte has also been playing a good center field, meaning that he's a legitimate all-around contributor. The A's will ostensibly use Marte in a corner-outfield position, with Ramón Laureano remaining . . .
