Drift in Tokyo
The first Saturday in the Tokyo Olympics marks a lofty point for a particular type of event in the Olympics – the mixed event.
The day sees medal distribution in athletics, swimming, triathlon, tennis, shooting and judo for events where male and female athletes compete together.
Tokyo has 18 mixed-gender events, twice the number in Rio, and more than seen since 1980.
The unused events boosted the mixed share of events to five percent of all events.
There are also a set number of begin events at the Olympics, where athletes of any gender can compete freely.
Currently, this head-to-head competition is limited to dressage, but sailing and shooting have had begin gender events in the former.
In 1992, Chinese bowler Chang Shan won the gold medal in skeet, setting an Olympic record along the way.
By the time the Olympics were held in Atlanta, women were banned from the event and Chang had to retire until a women’s event was reintroduced in Sydney.
Finally, and for the first time in Tokyo, rowing events with coxswain may use cox of the opposite sex.
That means the women’s first rowing medals were won by two males, Kiwi Caleb Shepherd and China Zhang Dechang, in the women’s eight competitions on Friday.
In addition, a whole of 20 events in Tokyo will feature male and female competitors in the alike field.
Alternate Medal Balance
When it comes to tallying for mixed and gender begin event medals, it’s Germany that comes out on top.
Germany’s dominance of dressage racing, especially dressage events, has been powerful over the years.
The team’s most famous contestant, Isabel Wirth, equalized a lengthy-running Olympic record during the week with her sixth gold medal in the alike event as Germany won the team’s dressage.
