Swe

Penalties!

It's penalties for Sweden and Canada in the women's soccer final!

The teams are level at 1-1 after 120 minutes of play. 

FT: Sweden 1-1 Canada

The gold medal match goes to extra-time.

More gold for Italy!

Italy have won the 4x100m men's relay for the first time in history. GB had the lead but the Italians just edge it to win gold. Silver for Britain. Bronze for Canada.

What a run by the Italians!

Jamaica win gold in women's 4x100m relay

Team USA win silver. Great Britain win bronze.

Jamaica's time of 41.02 is the second fastest time of all time!

Shaunae Miller-Uibo comes home first in women's 400m

Shaunae Miller-Uibo recorded a personal best and area record as she crossed the line on 48.36 - way ahead of the competition in the women's 400m final. Marileidy Paulino came in second on 49.20 - a new national record for Dominican Republic and completing the medals, 35-year-old USA veteran Allyson Felix who registered 49.46.

Nice to see Jamaica's Candice McLeod connecting with her folks back home in her Athlete Moment, after the race.

Athletics: women's 400m final

The presentations are taking place now for this intriguing race. Here's how they line up.

Men's 5,000m: final lap

There are five in the reckoning as we come into the final bend but Uganda's Uga Cheptegei pulls away and seems to be on for a new Olympic record. He just misses out on the record but the gold medal it what counts most!

Silver goes to Canada's Mohammed Ahmed and bronze to Paul Chelimo representing Team USA.

Track and field focus

As our regular followers are aware, we'll have our eye on all the events no matter where they are taking place. One of the arenas getting our attention right now is the Olympic Stadium where we have a selection of disciplines going on.

The women's javelin is slowly building in the centre of the field while the men's 5,000m final trots around the track.

We've already seen the heats of the men's 4x400m here and the final later today is something not to be missed.

Olympic Games

The most heartwarming moments from the 2021 Tokyo Olympics

From Simone Biles surprising us all by withdrawing from the competition and shedding a light on the difficult and emotional side of the Olympics, to Laurel Hubbard making history as the first transgender woman to compete in the Olympics, the Tokyo Olympic Games have seen lots of ups and downs of emotions.

But through it all, we have seen competitors show astounding acts of sportsmanship. When stakes are high and the pressure is on, these athletes still show that the true leaders are the ones who stand up for others, applaud their wins, and support each other as fellow athletes and humans.

Jennifer Bubel has been watching the Olympics closely and has a few touching moments captured to tug at your heartstrings. Watch here.

Wrestling: another medal for Team USA

Kyle Douglas Dake has collected the bronze medal for Team USA in the men's freestyle 74kg wrestling, as the country continues to push for top spot in the medals table.

Climbing: speed record

Call Keanu Reeves! Call Spiderman! This is crazy impressive.

Poland's Aleksandra Miroslaw smashed the women's world speed climbing record earlier to win the first leg of the three-event Olympic final on Friday, as the competition that made its Games debut this week draws to a close.

Miroslaw, 27, reached the top of the 15m (49ft) wall in 6.84 seconds, knocking more than a tenth of a second off the 6.96 second record set last year by Russian climber Iuliia Kaplina, who was eliminated in Wednesday's qualifier.

That puts the Pole in a strong position ahead of the next two legs: bouldering, which requires climbers to use problem-solving skills to scale obstacles set along a low wall, followed by lead, a timed climb that tests endurance.

The combined score, a multiplication of rankings across the three events, determines the overall winner.

France's Anouck Jaubert finished second in speed - a head-to-head race up the wall - followed by Japanese medal hope Miho Nonaka. Janja Garnbret of Slovenia, widely considered a contender for the gold medal, placed fifth out of eight finalists in what is her weakest discipline.

Cycling track: British gold

Britain's Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald won the gold medal in the Olympic women's madison at the Izu Velodrome on Friday.

Denmark took the silver medal and the Russian Olympic Committee's duo the bronze.

Cycling: Double Dutch

Cycling powerhouse the Netherlands are guaranteed a first Olympic champion in the men's track sprint since 1932 after world champion Harrie Lavreysen and team mate Jeffrey Hoogland powered into the final on Friday.

The flying Dutchmen have already delivered gold this week in the team sprint, which almost unbelievably was the country's first Olympic title in men's track cycling since 1936. Now they will go head-to-head in a best-of-three showdown later on Friday at the Izu Velodrome.

Lavreysen ended Jack Carlin's hopes of following in the wheel tracks of Chris Hoy and Jason Kenny and maintaining Britain's Olympic domination in the speed event dating back to 2008. The Dutchmen comfortably won both heats.

Hoogland beat Russian veteran Denis Dmitriev 2-0. Carlin and Dmitriev will race off for bronze.

Wow! Speed climbing, eh?

Blink and you've missed it. Quicker than the 100m sprint, these men and women are flying up the wall faster than gravity would take my fall (OK, I haven't done the maths on that!)

Some incredible demonstrations of strength, coordination and agility...although one slip and it's over. We've already seen some tears.

More volleyball gold on the line

An impressive performance from the American girls sees them move into the final match with gold on their minds. A 3-0 result against Serbia gives plenty of confidence going into it.

Team USA's Brooke Raboutou cheered her teammates on in the men's sport climbing final.

Now it's her turn to scale the walls with the women's final coming up.

The marathon is one of the most-awaited events in the Olympics.

Japanese fans however are disappointed they will be unable to watch and cheer on the streets.

Britain wins the bronze in women's hockey.

Team GB wins 4-3 over India. India had a great result in Tokyo, winning third and fourth in two hockey events. This was their best performance in the sport since the Moscow Games in 1980.

The A-Team grabs the gold in beach volleyball!

Team USA's April Ross and Alix Klineman seal the deal with a 21-15, 21-16 victory over Australia's Mariafe Artacho del Solar and Taliqua Clancy.

Team USA is so close to clinching the gold in beach volleyball!

Mr. T will be happy.

OLYMPIC GAMES

How long is a marathon? How far is it in miles?

The women's marathon kicks off today. What is the exact distance that the athletes need to run?

Beach volleyball is up!

Anouk Vergé-Depré and Joana Heldrich of Switzerland win the bronze after defeating Tina Graudina and Anastasija Kravcenoka of Latvia 21-19, 21-15.

Why are we celebrating Spain's Jesús Garcia Bragado for finishing 35th in the men's 50 km race walk?

Because it's his eighth Olympic Games, at age 51, that's why.

He first joined the event at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, and has participated in each Olympic 50 km race walk since.

This makes him the male athlete with the most Olympic Games joined in history.

What an inspiration!

OLYMPIC GAMES

What is the longest race in the Olympics?

With so many endurance races in the Olympics, one wonders which of them covers the greatest distance.

The marathon may be more popular, but athletes participating in the race walk go the extra mile.

Dawid Tomala of Poland grabs the gold in the grueling men's 50 km race walk.

Tomala covers the distance in 3:50:08. Germany's Jonathan Hilbert is mere seconds behind him at 3:50:44 to clinch the silver. Evan Dunfee of Canada comes in third at 3:50:59.

How does sport climbing work at the Olympics? Rules, format and score system

What exactly is the sport climbing event in the Tokyo Olympics?

The rules have complicated matters for the climbers, but they are just happy that climbing has finally made it to the Olympics.

Sport climbing's debut at the Olympics has been a big hit!

Today, it's the women's turn to grab the gold.

One of today's highlights is the beach volleyball finals!

The A-Team goes for gold, with Mr. T cheering them on.

The action continues as the Olympic Games head into Day 14!
