TOKYO, Japan — Friday at the Tokyo Olympics will bring some new events that will have men and women competing together and against one another.
In the pool, it will be first-ever final in the mixed 4x100-meter medley relay. Two men and two women swim per team, with each doing one of the four stroke styles. A few hours before that, it will be the Olympic debut of the triathlon mixed relay, also with two men and two women per team.
On the pitch, the U.S. women’s soccer team takes on the Netherlands in the quarterfinals. The winner goes on to the semis while the loser goes home.
And the first track and field medal of the games is awarded in the men’s 10,000-meter final. Among the competitors is Lewis-Clark State College alum and assistant cross-country coach Sam Atkin, who's running for his native country, Great Britain.
