Saturday was the first real, busy race day at the Tokyo Olympics.

On Sunday, Finns will be on fire in the Olympic arenas from an early morning, when skeet shooters Lari Pesonen and Eetu Kallioinen will finish in the shooting qualifiers starting at 4.00 Finnish time.

The sailors' race will start on Sunday with the power of three Finns, when Tuula Tenkanen will be seen at the start of the Laser Radial class from 6.05, Kaarle Tapper in the Laser Standard class at 8.35 and Tuuli Petäjä-Sirén in the RS: X class at 9.05.

The evening period for the swimmers starts at 1 pm Finnish time, when the Finns enter the pool in the third preliminary round of the 100-meter backstroke at 13.07 and Ida Hulkko in the sixth initial round of the 100-meter breaststroke at 13.48.

For the second time, Jallow, who is involved in the Olympics, is expecting hard levels from the race.

You will find the Finnish program and the program for all sports throughout the race day at the end of this story!

22-year-old Ida Hulkko will fight for the 100-meter breaststroke semi-finals in the sixth or final preliminary round.

Hulk's SE time of 1.06.73 is enough instead of race statistics 22. 16 swimmers will advance to the semi-finals and the 16th time is 1.06.54.

With a record improvement of a few tenths, Hulkko may well get two swims in these races, but stretching is needed.

If the 50-meter breaststroke were an Olympic sport, the Tampere coach coached by Jere Jännes would be the final favorite.

He swam silver in the spring at the long track European Championships.

In Tokyo, the statistic time for the eighth best swimmer is 1.05.99, so it would take almost a second to stretch.

Sure, it’s not unprecedented, but it would require a perfect swim.

All of Hulko’s best performances have come in the championships at 50 meters, so endurance and pace endurance are still needed.

Maybe he’s 100 meters ready for the 2024 Paris Olympic pool.

There is still time for a young woman to develop.
