Olympics 2021 live updates – USA women’s hoops, boxer Keyshawn Davis go for gold

The final day of competition at the Olympic Games is here. After record-breaking days in the pool and on the track, history-making feats and inspiring moments, the Games come to a close in Tokyo. After the events, the Olympic closing ceremonies begin at 7 a.m. ET Sunday morning.

But first, we’ve got medals to hand out.

Saturday’s action started with the men’s marathon winding through the streets of Sapporo, Japan, which Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge won his second consecutive gold medal in dominant fashion, beating the field by more than a minute.

Then comes the evening’s main event: The women’s basketball gold medal game. The United States will face Japan (10:30 p.m. ET). This will be Japan’s first time competing for a gold medal in women’s basketball, and if Team USA wins, this will be their seventh consecutive gold medal. Americans Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi are both seeking an unprecedented fifth gold medal. Rui Machida spurs the Japanese offense. Japan’s team leads the Olympic field in 3-pointers per game and 3-point percentage. They also average 23.6 assists per game.

“As usual, with USA Basketball, when we come together, we try to get on a path where we’re just getting better and better every day on the journey,” Bird said, following the semifinal. “I still think there’s another level we can get to, and I hope that’s what happens in [the gold-medal game].”

After that game, we’ll see one of the most anticipated fights in Olympic boxing this year: The men’s lightweight final. American Keyshawn Davis will face rival Andy Cruz (1:15 a.m. ET). Cruz has had the better of Davis is previous fights. Davis is seeking to be the first U.S. men’s boxer to win a gold medal since Andre Ward in 2004. An American hasn’t won this weight class since Oscar De La Hoya won gold in the 1992 Barcelona Games.

Here’s the best action from the last night in Tokyo:

Kipchoge goes back-to-back

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge ran it back for gold, literally, in the men’s marathon in Sapporo, pulling away down the stretch to win his second consecutive gold medal. Kipchoge’s winning time of 2:08.38 was more than a minute better than the silver medalist, Netherlands’ Abdi Nageeye.

Here’s Kipchoge putting a bow on his dominant performance.

The battle for silver and bronze was also pretty epic.
