It takes place on the second day of the Olympics in Tokyo.

From a German point of view, Olympic Sunday is all about ball sports. But dressage fans can also look forward to a highlight. Day at a glance.

The first day of competition at the 2021 Olympic Games has come to an end. Like in Rio de Janeiro 2016, Germany initially had nothing left and are still waiting for their first medal in Tokyo. However, this may change on Sunday.

T-Online gives an overview of tomorrow

Cycling: The women will win medals in the Olympic road race around Mount Fuji on Sunday, a day after the men. German hopes for the precious metal are on Lisa Brenauer. The German road champion since 2020 belongs to an expanded circle of favourites.

Basketball: The German team will play their first match in Group B against Italy. National coach Heinrich Rodl’s team will start at 6.40 am German time.

Football: After an early loss against Brazil (2–4), the team around captain Maxi Arnold (starting at 1.30 pm German time) against Saudi Arabia needed an immediate victory to have a chance at the quarter-finals. It is not without reason that actors already refer to this game as “endgame”.

Hockey: After that Men’s big win at the start Against Canada (7:1), the German women want to make their opening game equally effective against Great Britain. It starts at 2.30 pm German time.

Horse riding: From 10 a.m., dressage fans will get their money’s worth. Then it comes to six-time Olympic champion and gold candidate Isabel Werth’s first appearance in the dressage arena alongside Bella Rose.

Rowing: The quarterfinals of men’s singles will start at 3.40 am. There’s also the German Oliver Zeidler.

Tennis: He has already reached the next round in doubles with Jan-Lenard Struff, now he wants to do it in singles: tennis ace Alexander Zverev of Germany will play his first match against Taiwan’s Lu Yen-Sun at 4am.

Otherwise interesting: skateboarding (from 1.30 am, unfortunately without German participation) and surfing (From midnight), along with Leon Glatzer, celebrate their Olympic premiere.
