There’s already been plenty of drama at the Ariake Gymnastics Centre at the 2020 Olympics following Russia’s win over the USA in the Women’s Team event on Tuesday, and there’s sure to be more as tense completion in today’s individual all-around final. Read on as we explain how to get a Tokyo 2020 Olympics live stream and watch the Women’s Gymnastics Individual All-Around Final online from anywhere – and where you can watch absolutely free of charge.
The big talking point coming into the event has been the withdrawal of the defending 2016 Olympic champion Simone Biles after the Team USA star pulled out to focus on her mental health.
While Jade Carey – who had the ninth highest score in qualifications – will now take Biles’ place in the final, Team USA’s best hopes of gold look likely to rest with Sunisa Lee, who finished third in the all-around in qualifying behind Biles and Rebeca Andrade of Brazil.
ROC’s Angelina Melnikova and Vladislava Urazova will also be in contention for reaching the for top podium after finishing with scores over 57 in the qualifiers. And twin sisters, Jessica and Jennifer Gadirova, will be representing Team GB in the final.
Don’t miss a moment by following our guide to watching the Women’s Gymnastics Individual All-Around Final online and live stream the Tokyo 2020 Olympics from anywhere today.
