Tokyo Olympics: Men’s 100m fina: Preview
After Jamaican legend Usain Bolt’s retirement, a spot for the new 100m Olympic champion has been left vacant. Several nominees announced themselves in the span between Rio and Tokyo Olympics. The number one contender out of them was thought to be Christian Coleman of the USA. However, his suspension for missing dope tests meant that he won’t be contesting for the 100m title in Tokyo.
USA sprinter and Rio silver medallist, Justin Gatlin was also in consideration for coming back on the field with a bang with his former rival retired. However, the 2017 world champion failed to qualify for the Games. With both Coleman and Gatlin out of contention, guesses are still running wild on who will be the next king of sprints.

Men’s 100m final: Prediction
The 100m men’s final will be an exciting one for sure. Many strong contenders like Fred Kerley, Ronnie Baker, Gift Leotlela, Marcell Lamont Jacobs, Enoch Adegoke, Andre De Grasse, Yohan Blake, Akani Simbine will be fighting for the top honour. However, chances are that USA sprinter Trayvon Bromell will seal the victory. Although his performance in the heats was lukewarm, he will surely come back with a vengeance. And if Usain Bolt’s own verdict is to go by, he himself has put his money on Bromell.
