Finishing alone is enough for Kiran Badloe to win the gold medal. The Dutchman could therefore in theory take his time and make a pleasure trip to the end. But Badloe will still want to show off in the last race, even though the gold has already been won.
Lilian de Geus will also take action in the water for the last time in Tokyo tomorrow. Unfortunately De Geus no longer has any chance of winning a medal, but will be driven to perform well in the Medal Race. De Geus kicks in at 7:33 am, Badloe at 8:33 am.
