2016 Summer Olympics: Day 4 Watch Guide

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

Tuesday, August 9 (all times Eastern)

9:00 a.m. — Equestrian

Not only does equestrian Beezie Madden have one of the coolest names on Team USA, she's also one of the country's oldest competitors. At 52 years old, Madden will compete in her fourth consecutive Games in Rio as part of the U.S. show jumping team.

3:00 p.m. — Gymnastics: Women’s Team Final

Gymnasts rarely compete in back-to-back Olympics for the competitive U.S. team, but this year is an exception. Gabby Douglas and AlyRaisman, who were gold medalists in London in 2012, will compete in their second straight Games. The U.S. beat out China, led by Shang Chunsong (below), to win the world championship last year.

6:00 p.m. — Women’s Soccer: U.S. vs. Colombia

After last summer's World Cup victory, there isn't much doubt that the Americans are the best in the world. Expect a fast start: The U.S. hammered tonight's opponent, Colombia, 7--0 and 3--0 when the teams met in a pair of friendlies in April.
