Already the winner of the bronze medal 100 meters backstroke, Ryan Murphy is probably aiming for a different color medal tonight.
Murphy, who graduated from The Bolles School in Jacksonville, is the defending champion of the Olympics with a 200-meter backstroke, but like the 100 Tokyo Fields, the 200 fields in the final are very deep.
The Russian Olympic Commission’s Evgeny Rilov, who won the 100-backstroke gold medal, is in the top 200 qualifiers, and Luke Greenbank of the United Kingdom defends European silver medalists at this event.
Also tonight, Ben Davison of Inverness will be part of Team USA with eight men in the Olympic rowing competition. Davison and his teammates reached the final after qualifying in the Repechage. This is the second chance of qualifying after the qualifying heat.
Born in England, Davison grew up in Inverness, attended Citrus High, and then went on to college at the University of Washington. This is his first Olympics, but Davison won the bronze medal with four men at the 2017 World Championships.
Another rower to win the medal tonight is Orlando’s eight US women’s Kateling Regian. Gresian and her crew went directly to tonight’s final after winning the qualifying on July 24th.
The U.S. team’s biggest competition is likely to be New Zealand, which also made it to the finals directly, but Romania had the “world’s best” time at the repechage event and Canada was also a difficult competitor. There is a possibility.
Gresian is about to win his second gold medal at this event. She won the women’s 8th place in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
For those who stay up late, another Floridian will win a medal at 2am on Friday early morning. Born in Tampa, Austin Krajicek wins a bronze medal in the men’s tennis doubles with his teammate Tennys Sandgren. The American duo will play New Zealand’s Marcus Daniell and Michael Venus for Bronze.
