Simone Biles return to the Ariake Gymnastics Center is the big story of Tuesday at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, as the four-time gold medalist will compete in the balance beam event finals at 4:50 a.m. ET.

And on the track, one of the most anticipated matchups of the games takes place as the men’s 400m hurdles starts at 11:20 p.m. ET to close out primetime on the east coast. Norway’s Karsten Warholm and Team USA’s Rai Benjamin should be a classic, and Warholm is a -125 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook with Benjamin the +160 underdog.

Also the boxing events are winding down towards the end of the 32-fighter brackets, and two gold medals will be awarded this evening. In the women’s featherweight division, Nesthy Petecio of The Philippines will face Sena Irie of Japan, and Pat McCormack of Team GB will take on Roniel Iglesias of Cuba for the men’s welterweight gold.
