TOKYO — The final day of the Tokyo Olympics began early, with the men’s marathon at 7 a.m. on Sunday, Tokyo time (Saturday at 6 p.m. Eastern time). The race was held in the northern city of Sapporo in an effort to avoid the worst of Tokyo’s summer heat.
The U.S. women’s basketball team cruised to victory, routing Japan, 90-75, for its seventh consecutive gold medal.
In the afternoon, the U.S. women’s indoor volleyball team will play for gold against Brazil.
Two American boxers will also fight for gold: Keyshawn Davis at lightweight and Richard Torrez Jr. at super heavyweight.
And when it’s all wrapped up, the closing ceremony, again without fans, starts at 8 p.m. in Tokyo, 7 a.m. Eastern time.
