Day 4 of track and field continues at Olympic Stadium on Tuesday.
Here are the notable events and their results.
Men’s Triple Jump
Americans Christian Taylor (17.86) and Will Claye (17.76) won gold and silver, respectively. Claye then proposed to his girlfriend.
Men’s 110-Meter Hurdles
University of Oregon wide receiver Devon Allen qualified for the final later Tuesday night by posting a time of 13.36 seconds. He came in third in his heat so wasn’t an automatic qualifier, but posted one of the two fastest times for non-qualifiers to advance.
He did not medal in the final, finishing fifth, just .07 away from the podium. It’s the first time the Americans have ever been shut out of a medal in the 110-meter hurdles.
Women’s 400-Meter Hurdles
Sydney McLaughlin came in fifth in her heat and failed to qualify for the finals, ending her Olympics.
American teammates Ashley Spencer (54.87) and Dalilah Muhammad (53.89) won their respective heats and advanced to the final.
Men’s 400-Meter Hurdles
American Kerron Clement (48.26) won his semifinal heat and advanced to the final.
Men’s High Jump
American Erik Kynard Jr. failed to reach the podium, tying for fourth.
