The Men’s 100-Meter Dash Is Tonight at the Tokyo Olympics

Two track and field medals will be awarded Sunday night in Tokyo (Sunday morning in the United States): the men’s high jump and the men’s 100 meters.

In the high jump, all eyes are on JuVaughn Harrison, who is competing in both the high jump and the long jump at the Games. He’s the first American to enter both events at the same Olympics since Jim Thorpe in 1912.

The men’s 100-meter final — the race to succeed the retired Usain Bolt as the fastest man in the world — is stacked but missing one prominent name: Trayvon Bromell of the United States failed to advance out of the semifinals.

The American Fred Kerley won his heat in 9.96 seconds. He previously competed in the 400 and made the rare transition to the 100 this year. Andre De Grasse of Canada, who won a bronze in the 100 and a silver in the 200 at the 2016 Rio Olympics, also advanced to the final.

They will be joined by Akani Simbine of South Africa, Marcell Jacobs of Italy, Zharnel Hughs of Britain, Su Bingtian of China, Ronnie Baker of the United States and Enoch Adegoke of Nigeria.
