Olympic Swimming Games Live Scores, Updates, Highlights from Day 3 to Tokyo 2021 Games

Monday’s final races may not feature the big names of Katie Ledecky and Ariarne Titmus, but there will undoubtedly be some serious talent showcased.

The men’s and women’s 100-meter backstroke swimmers will battle for medals, while the women in line are bursting with talent in Olympic record holder Regan Smith (USA), world record holder Kaylee McKeown (Australia) and Canadian record holder Kylie Masse, who beat McKeown in the second semi of the race on Sunday. American and world record holder Ryan Murphy will try to fend off Russian Kliment Kolsnikov for the gold in the 100 backstroke.

Two American stars, world record holder Lilly King and Alaskan Lydia Jacoby, 17, will fight in a tight field with South African Tatjana Schoenmaker and Swedish record holder Sophie Hansson in the 100 breaststroke final . In the men’s 200 freestyle, American Kieran Smith hopes to beat Britain’s Duncan Scott in the 200 freestyle and stay ahead of Lithuanian Danas Rapsys after a hotly contested semi-final.

Swimming fans will also have another chance to see Ledecky and Titmus compete in the 200 freestyle semifinals on Monday, although they will swim in different heats: Titmus will swim in the first semi-final against Canada’s Penny Oleksiak, while that Ledecky will swim in the second. The two will face off again on Tuesday night for the final event in what will be the final chapter in the two-swimmers’ rivalry after Titmus won Sunday night in the 400 freestyle.

Sporting News will provide live updates and highlights from each event during Day 3 of the Olympic Swimming Finals.
