2016 Summer Olympics: Day 5 Watch Guide

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

Wednesday, August 10 (all times Eastern)

12:30 p.m. — Men’s Soccer: Argentina vs. Honduras

Fans of the United States will watch this game and think about what might have been. Despite hosting the qualification tournament, the U.S. failed to make the field for the Games, thanks in part to a 2--0 loss to Honduras. Don't discount the tiny Central American nation: Honduras made it to the quarterfinals in 2012.

2:30 p.m. — Women’s Basketball: U.S. vs. Serbia

Elena Delle Donne (below) will lead Team USA in its quest for a sixth straight Olympic gold medal. She is an advocate for lowering the rim, but for now the 6'5" WNBA MVP will showcase her talents on a 10-foot rim. She will be joined by three-time gold medalists Tamika Catchings, Sue Bird, and Diana Taurasi on an experienced team that features just one player, Breanna Stewart, who is younger than 25.

9:00 p.m. — Swimming

Few athletes handle short distances in the pool better than Nathan Adrian. He's the American record holder in the 50-meter freestyle. Tonight he'll try to defend his 2012 gold medal in the 100 meters. It'll take less than a minute, but for a sprint specialist like Adrian, that's almost an eternity.
