Finishing alone is enough for Kieran Padlow to win the gold medal. So the Dutchman could theoretically take his time and go on a fun ride to the end. But Badloe will still be keen to show himself during the last race, despite winning the gold medal already.
Lilian de Geus will also take action in the waters for the last time in Tokyo tomorrow. Unfortunately, De Geus no longer has a chance to win a medal, but will be pushed to do well during the medal race. De Geus starts work at 07:33, Badloe at 08:33.
