Tokyo Olympics Softball Preview

The six countries participating in the games were selected for the Olympic Games after playing in three qualifier tournaments held between 2018 and 2019. Japan, the No. 2 team in the world, will host, while world No. 1 United States are the favorites to win gold. Italy, Mexico, Canada and Australia are the other four teams competing for a medal in softball this year. Each team will play each other once, with the top two teams battling it out for gold and the third and fourth place finishers competing for the bronze medal.

Considering the sport will not be played in the 2024 Games in Paris, (a return is possible in 2028 in Los Angeles, and remains likely yet uncertain), this year’s Games will be an emotional event for every individual softball player competing.

“When we got the news that softball had been voted back into the Olympic Games, it was really just a dream come true scenario for a lot of us,” U.S. outfielder Haylie McCleney told USA Today.

The United States won gold in 2000 and 2004, losing in the gold medal game to Japan in 2008. The Americans will be out to get back on top once again, and they’ve been on a tear of late. They outscored their opponents 45-6 in the 2019 Pan-American Games, which was their last international outing. That said, the United States isn’t sitting on its laurels.

“Australia has a great developmental program and Japan, a very disciplined and structured organization. So this will be an Olympics unlike any other. I think everybody right now is not that farly separated as they used to be,” U.S. coach Ken Eriksen said heading into the games, noting he won’t be underestimating any country.

Here’s a look at the group stage schedule, along with the schedule for the gold and bronze medal matchups: (All times U.S./Eastern)

  • Tuesday, July 20: Australia vs. Japan, 8 p.m. Italy vs. United States, 11 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 21: Mexico vs. Canada, 2 a.m. United States vs. Canada, 8 p.m. Mexico vs. Japan, 11 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 22: Italy vs. Australia, 2 a.m.
  • Friday, July 23: Australia vs. Canada, 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 24: United States vs. Mexico, 1:30 a.m. Japan vs. Italy, 7 a.m. Australia vs. the United States, 9 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 25: Canada vs. Japan, 1:30 a.m. Italy vs. Mexico, 7 a.m. Japan vs. United States, 9 p.m.
  • Monday, July 26: Canada vs. Italy, 1:30 a.m. Mexico vs. Australia, 7 a.m.

Bronze Medal Game: Tuesday, July 27: Fourth-place in group vs. Third-place in group, 12 a.m.

Gold Medal Game: Tuesday, July 27: Second-place in group vs. First-place in group, 7 a.m.

And a glimpse at the roster for the United States:

  • Monica Abbott, Pitcher
  • Ali Aguilar, Infield
  • Valerie Arioto, Infield
  • Ally Card, Pitcher/infield
  • Amanda Chidester, Catcher
  • Rachel Garcia, Pitcher/infield
  • Haylie McCleney, Outfield

Olympics 3×3 Basketball Preview

The Olympics are set to put a new spin on a classic sport as 3X3 basketball takes center stage in Tokyo. Here’s how the Olympics describes the sport on its official site.

“Exciting, urban and innovative, 3×3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide, and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. FIBA has developed 3×3 as the second basketball discipline to attract a new audience and provide more opportunities for its member associations and players worldwide.”

There will be eight men’s teams and eight women’s teams in Tokyo, although only the US women qualified. A total of 64 athletes will compete for the gold from July 24-28. Here are some of the more unique rules, courtesy of FIBA:

  • 1 basket on 1 half-court
  • 2 teams of 3 players and up to 1 substitute per team
  • 12-seconds shot-clock
  • 1st team to reach 21 points or best after 10 minutes win

The US women’s team is made up of Las Vegas Aces guard Kelsey Plum, Chicago Sky center Stefanie Dolson and Dallas Wings guard Allisha Gray and Aces guard Jackie Young.

“I would describe it as a 400- or 800-[meter sprint],” Plum says. “It’s just pretty much go, go, go, as hard as you can.”

Katie Lou Samuelson was a late scratch for the American squad, having to sit out due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

“Competing in the Olympics has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I hope someday soon, I can comeback to realize that dream,” Samuelson wrote in a statement. “I wish nothing but the best to my USAB teammates as they go out there and crush it. I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way.”

Samuelson was an instrumental part of qualifying and the US will have to find a way to overcome her absence.

“Our hearts are broken for Lou. We thank her for her endless commitment to building up USA Basketball 3×3 & we will miss her dearly in Tokyo,” USA Basketball tweeted this week.

Here are the odds for the women’s tournament.

TEAM ODDS
USA
+100
France
3-1
ROC (Russia)
6-1
China
8-1
Japan
16-1
Italy
25-1
Romania
40-1
Mongolia
66-1

On the men’s side, Serbia is seen as the favorite, followed by Latvia and the Netherlands.

Olympics Beach Volleyball Preview

The United States women took home the bronze in beach volleyball at 2016 Games in Rio, while the Americans failed to medal on the men’s side. After over a decade of dominance from popular duo Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings, who won Olympic gold in 2004, 2008, and 2012, things will be looking quite different for the U.S. this time.

April Ross, who teamed with Walsh Jennings to win the bronze in 2016, is now pairing with Alix Klineman in the hopes of attaining gold.

“It’s the Olympics, and you want that party atmosphere,” Ross said. “Japanese fans are awesome, so if those are the fans we’re going to have, I think it’s going to be a great atmosphere.”

“I really want people to see and focus on is how tough the sport is, and how athletic the players are,” Ross added. “That’s still going to be showcased. Hopefully, we reach a lot of people, and for them there’s no distractions.”

A refresher on beach volleyball rules: The men’s and women’s sides will each have 24 teams that are then split into six pools of four. The top two pairs from each group along with four wild cards will advance to the single-elimination Round of 16. Matches consist of three sets each; teams play up to 21 points in the first two sets and up to 15 in the third. Teams can only win a match when sets are won by at least two points.

Here’s a look at the schedule for both men’s and women’s beach volleyball, as well as a glimpse of the competitors:

Schedule of Events: July 23-24: Men’s and women’s pool games; Aug 4-5: Men’s and women’s semifinals; Aug 5-6: Men’s and women’s bronze- and gold-medal games
