The Wolf has been hard at it doing Olympics form, hunting for winners in sports from archery to weightlifting and everything in between. Here are The Wolf’s Tokyo 2020 tips for Day 11 on Tuesday.
Stunning price here on the Japanese boxer Sena Irie. She takes on veteran Nesthy Pestecio. These two have met three times and the local hero has beaten her twice in three fights.
The women’s Javelin shapes as an amazing contest. Plumping for Chinese veteran Lu Huihui, who has thrown over 67.59 in each of the last four years. She has medalled at each of the last three world champs.
Mondo Duplantis is the greatest pole vaulter in the world and potentially of all time and the gap between him and the field is immense. He holds the WR and is the only vaulter to go over 5.92m this year, something he has done four times including a season best of 6.10m. Reliable multi filler.
Fancy the favourite Noah Lyles is a touch short in this one. Lyles is 3-0 all-time against Bednarek but the last two meetings have seen Lyles win by just 0.04s. These are the two best over 200m and there is no focus on the 100m like De Grasse has.
Of the six fastest times recorded in the 400m hurdles this year, Benjamin has recorded three of them while the three-on favourite has just two. Warholm has a best of 0.13s better this season but the silver medal winner from the 2019 World Champs has the upside to step up to the gold here.
Germany may be sneaking under the radar in the women’s team pursuit. They had the fastest time in the worlds last year. They took home the bronze in the worlds. That 4.11 in the qualifications though was exceptional. They are right in this.
