2016 Summer Olympics: Day 8 Watch Guide

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

Saturday, August 13 (all times Eastern)

7:50 a.m. — Rowing Women’s Eights

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Not likely. These athletes won't be doing anything gently. Among the athletes in action are the U.S. women's eight. The team has won every world championship and Olympic race since 2006, making them one of the most successful dyansties in the sport's history.

11:00 a.m. — Tennis: Women’s Final

Serena Williams will compete for her second straight singles title, which would bring her total gold medal count to five (thanks to a superb doubles career alongside her sister Venus). Her closest competition will likely be GarbineMuguruza of Spain, who upset Williams in the French Open final just two months ago.

7:00 p.m. — Track and Field

Everyone knows Jamaica's Usain Bolt is the fastest man alive. The fastest woman also hails from that island nation. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has won the 100 meters at the past two Olympics, and she showed at the 2015 world championships that she's still got it. Look for the 29-year-old to make it a three-peat.
