Tokyo – Olympic medals for sport climbing will be awarded for the first time in Tokyo today, and Adam Ondra is one of the narrowest circle of those who could win them. Josef Dostál and Radek Šlouf want to get to the finals on the deblkajak. Golfer Klára Spilková will complete the second of four rounds, the decathlon fighters will finish their competition and the modern pentathlon fighters will start. There are a total of 27 medal sets at stake.

The four-time world champion Adam Ondra advanced to the eight-member final as the fifth. One opponent has already dropped out, the Frenchman Bassa Mawem, with whom he was supposed to compete in the first round of speed climbing at 10:30 CEST, will not continue due to injury. However, his younger brother Mickaël, who won the qualification, remains in the game. Other favorites are home Tomoa Narasaki and Austrian Jakob Schubert, the last two world champions.

Spilková started the competition of golfers in style and will go to the second round from the divided seventh place with the result two shots under par. He loses three shots to Sweden’s leader Madelene Sagström. World number one Nelly Kordová from the USA shares the second place with a gap of one shot.

After a disappointment in a single kayak, where he finished fifth instead of the expected medal, he could get at least a little taste in the pair with Šlouf. They advanced from the race today without any problems and they would like to get to the final, which will take place at 5:55 CEST.

The modern pentathlete Jan Kuf and Martin Vlach will complete the basic round in fencing, the main program will be on Saturday.
