The 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games are in full swing and sports fans are able to put in wagers on a number of different events on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Men's track & field remains one of the most exciting sports on the Olympic schedule every year. Specifically, the 1,500m competition made its debut at the first Olympic games in 1896. Athletes push their bodies to the limits in order to battle at the most elite level in the world.
