With the Olympics kicking off in Japan in the summer, in addition to the many other sporting events throughout the year, this is one of the best years ever for women’s sports. With so much happening, it can be difficult to know where to look. Here are some of the best sporting events we think you should look at for women’s sports.
The women’s football competition at the Olympics is bound to be a brilliant competition. Sandwiched between the jaw-dropping success of the 2019 World Cup and the 2021 Women’s Euros, this is going to be a place where old grudges are settled and lines are drawn for the next few battles.
No matter where you happen to be in the world, you are going to want to set an alarm for these matches. Following their victory in the World Cup, we can expect the US team to be full of vigour and ready to win another Gold medal after their quarter-final elimination at Rio in 2016. By keeping up with the best sports betting sites, you can gain an insight into how these incredible players are going to perform no matter what is thrown at them.
Of course, no Olympics would be complete without taking a look at what the gymnasts are up tp. After an incredibly successful World Championships in 2019, the various disciplines in gymnastics are bound to be hotly contested.
Obviously, one person you need to watch out for is Simone Biles. This might be her last Olympiad so we can definitely expect to see her pull out all the stops for another incredible set of wins. She is already considered to be one of the best gymnasts of all time and we can expect her to extend her win even further if she does decide to compete.
The track events are often scrutinised incredibly closely. No matter what your feelings are towards the Olympics, most people manage to find time to watch a few events for this high-profile sport. There are some big names competing in the track events at the Olympics and we can’t wait to see their performances.
In particular, we will be paying close attention to two stars of British athletics; Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Dina Asher-Smith. Johnson-Thompson is the British record holder for the pentathlon event and the current gold-medal Commonwealth winner. Asher-Smith won three bronze medals and multiple medals at the 2019 World Championships. She is also the current World Champion for the 200m. We can expect great performances from both of these ladies.
No matter what happens at the Olympics and who manages to medal, we can be certain that it is likely to be an amazing spectacle. This is a chance for the finest athletes in the world to prove what they have and they never hold back. Make sure you pay attention to each of the teams and ladies we have mentioned here. They are sure to provide some amazing entertainment as we cheer them all to victory.
