The time has come. It's finally here. Who will win? Sydney or Dalilah?

In June at U.S. Trials, Sydney McLaughlin beat Dalila Muhammad and broke the defending Olympic champion's world record in 51.90. There's a very good chance, much like the men's race, this record falls again. But who will be on top?

Previews for the later session will be available before it starts. Check the Results page for more info.
