Day 14 has two unmissable three-medal games at stake.
First of all, Japan sees a positive conclusion to its men’s team tour, with the Republic of Korea standing between the host nation and the third stage of the medal podium.
In the game for the bronze medal in Rio 2016, the Republic of Korea suffered a defeat against Germany on this occasion and will definitely want to avoid this fate in Tokyo. Japan lost to the Republic of Korea at the 2018 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Halmstad – which nation will win if the two meet at 11 a.m. local time?
In the final of Tokyo 2020 from 7.30 p.m., defending champion China will meet Germany in the gold medal play-off.
China has never lost a men’s team game at the Olympic Games and wants to be at the top of the podium for the fourth time in a row, but can the impressive German team cause one of the biggest surprises in the sport?
