August 06, 2021, 10:56 AM

Each day, ABC News will give you a roundup of key Olympic moments from the day's events in Tokyo, happening 13 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Time. After a 12-month delay, the unprecedented 2020 Summer Olympics is taking place without fans or spectators and under a state of emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Allyson Felix makes Olympic history

U.S. sprinter Allyson Felix is now the most decorated female track and field athlete of all time in the Olympics. Felix won the bronze medal in the women’s 400m on Friday, her 10th medal, which ties her with legend Carl Lewis for the most medals for an American Olympic track and field athlete.

This was the fifth Olympics for the 35-year-old sprinter, and today’s bronze will be added to her previous six gold and three silver Olympic medals. Felix is also in the relay pool, and if she runs in tomorrow’s 4x400m relay, she would have a chance to surpass Lewis’ record.

Belarusian coaches removed from Olympics

The International Olympic Committee announced it was investigating the actions of Artur Shimak and Yury Maisevich surrounding the incident with sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya. The two coaches had their credentials canceled and were removed from the Olympics.

The incident started when Tsimanouskaya criticized her coaches on social media. She was quickly removed from her event and taken to the airport against her will to depart for Belarus. Tsimanouskaya said team officials intimated she would face punishment upon her return and, fearing for her safety, she hailed airport police.
