The 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games are set to begin on Friday, July 23, and sports fans will be able to put in wagers on a number of different events. That includes seven new Olympic sports. Men's swimming has long been a stapled event at the summer Olympics and this year is no different.
The sport is full of dynamic athletes, and the 200m butterfly has a world record holder as the prohibitive favorite to win the gold medal.
