2016 Summer Olympics: Day 13 Watch Guide

Here's the must-see action on the 13th day of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

Thursday, August 18 (all times Eastern)

3:00 p.m. — Women’s Diving: Platform Final

You won't see any cannonballs here. The name of the game is to make as little splash as possible after jumping off a platform more than 30 feet above the water. So the winners tend to be tiny. How small? China's Chen Ruolin, the gold medalist in 2008 and '12 weighs just 104 pounds.

5:35 p.m. — Track and Field

After Usain Bolt dusted Justin Gatlin of the U.S. in the 200 meters at the 2015 World Championships, the 34-year-old Gatlin talked about how his body was slowing down. This could be his last chance to take down the 29-year-old Bolt at the Olympics. But while most people think of Bolt as the 100-meter record-holder, he's been specializing in the 200-meter since he was 15 years old. Gatlin might need a miracle.

11:00 p.m. — Beach Volleyball: Men’s Final

Bruno Schmidt and Alison Cerutti are the reigning world champs. They're going to be awfully difficult to unseat playing at home. The top U.S. team is Nick Lucena and Phil Dalhausser, who reunited recently after breaking up their partnership back in 2006.
