FAVORITES TO WIN THE GOLD MEDAL

Trayvon Bromell (+110)

American Trayvon Bromell is the favorite to win the men’s 100-meter race. He is expected to come up with a much better performance than what he showed five years ago in Rio de Janeiro where he finished eighth in the finals with a time of 10.06. Bromell displayed his readiness to win the gold in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics when he topped the US Olymmpics trials with a time of 9.80. That wasn’t even his personal best, though. Bromell ran a 9.77 during the Big 12 Championships, albeit with some help from wind conditions.

Ronnie Baker (+400)

Bromell’s teammate with Team USA, Ronnie Baker, is another those expected to set the competition ablaze with his speed. Baker, a 27-year-old native of Kentucky, Louisville, did not partake in the 2016 Rio Olympics, but at the US Olmypics trials this year, he posted a 9.85 time in the 100-meter race. As a side note, Baker is a disatant relative of Tyson Gay, who still owns the American record (9.69) in 100 meters.

SLEEPERS TO WIN THE GOLD MEDAL

Marcell Jacobs (+3300)

Born in the US, Marcell Jacobs is in Japan to represent Italy. Jacobs will be entering the 100-meter event in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics full of confidence. It was not that long ago when he set the new Italian record with a 9.95 run in the 100 meters.

Reece Prescod (+3300)

Great Britain’s great hope for gold in the 100-meter race is no other then Reece Prescond, whose personal best in the event is 9.94. He ran a 9.88 in Eugene, Oregon back in 2018, but that was in a wind-assisted performance. Prescond won the silver medal in the 2018 European Championships in Berlin.

LONG SHOT TO WIN THE GOLD MEDAL

Ferdinand Omurwa (+20000)

Ferdinand Omurwa may be a long shot to win the gold in the 100-meter race in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but that shouldn’t stop you from completely ignoring him. He just set the new Kenyan record in the 100-meter event when he ran a 10.01 in Lagos just last March 2021.

Writer’s Prediction

Trayvon Bromell wins the Tokyo 2020 Olympics men’s 100-meter race.
