2016 Summer Olympics: Day 9 Watch Guide

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

Sunday, August 14 (all times Eastern)

11:15 a.m. — Women’s Marathon

The race begins and ends at the Sambódromo, a parade ground in downtown Rio. The 26-mile course will wind through some of the city's most historic, scenic districts. Here's hoping the runners won't be so focused on maintaining their pace that they can't enjoy the scenery.

1:15 p.m. — Boxing

The first medals will be awarded in the ring. Check out Paddy Barnes in the light flyweight (108-pound) class. The Ireland native knows a little about determination. He lost his first 15 fights, but now he's got a pair of bronze medals. He'll attempt to add a gold.

7:15 p.m. — Track and Field

Usain Bolt will try to continue his dominance in the 100 meters and strike his famous victory pose (one that looks suspiciously like the three-point celebration used by Wesley Matthews of the Dallas Mavericks). Nothing can slow Bolt down, not even junk food. He revealed recently that during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, he ate 1,000 chicken McNuggets a day — and still won gold.
