2016 Summer Olympics: Day 6 Watch Guide

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

Thursday, August 11 (all times Eastern)

7:00 a.m. — Badminton, Golf

The early birdies will get the worm. Both badminton and men's golf begin, so you can either watch some of the world's best golfers, such as Bubba Watson (below), try to make birdies or watch badminton players try to hit birdies. (Shuttlecocks can travel up to 248 miles per hour.)

3:00 P.M. — Gymnastics: Women’s All-Around

Simone Biles of the United States is the favorite to dominate in Rio after winning her fourth national title in June. Legend Mary Lou Retton, who won the all-around in 1984, has called Biles "unbeatable."

9:00 p.m. — Swimming

World-record holder Ryan Lochte will try to win gold in the 200-meter individual medley. Standing in his way: Michael Phelps, who's won the event in the last two Olympics.

10:00 p.m. — Table Tennis Men’s Singles Final

Who knew ping-pong could be this intense? Zhang Jike of China is one of four players to achieve a career Grand Slam (gold medals in singles at the World Championships, World Cup and Olympics). He is back and looking to defend the singles and team gold medals he won in London four years ago.
