The Complete Track+Field 2016 Rio Summer Olympics Schedule

Team USA has the chance to make track and field history this year: Justin Gatlin has the chance to beat Usain Bolt and Allyson Felix hopes to win gold.

The Track and Field events begin on Day 7 of the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics (August 12th).

American Justin Gatlin will go head to head against Usain Bolt, “the world’s fastest man,” in the Men’s 100m final, set to take place at 9:25 pm EST on August 15th. With Rio being Bolt’s last Olympics, it’s Gatlin’s final chance at redemption after a four-year probation for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Team USA’s Ajee Wilson will also be attempting to make history; one of the strongest American middle distance runners, she may be able to end the USA’s nearly 45-year distance dry spell for gold. Other athletes to look out for include 41-years-old Bernard Lagat, who will be attending his fifth Olympics as the oldest runner to ever make the American Team.

And, of course, Caster Semenya is back in Rio. The South African 800m runner who is returning as her dominant self after the Court of Arbitration of Sport suspended the mandate that she take hormones to reduce her naturally high levels of testosterone.
