8:00 a.m. — Marathon Swimming
Haley Anderson won silver in the 2012 Olympics for the U.S., but she won't be satisfied with anything less than gold this time. And she's extra careful about what color she paints her nails: She won silver with silver polish in '12.
1:00 p.m. — Gymnastics: Men’s and Women’s Apparatus
In addition to team and all-around competitions, gymnasts also vie for medals in individual events. (Being a gymnast is a busy life.) Keep an eye on Jacob Dalton. He took first in the vault at the 2016 national championship.
6:00 p.m. — Basketball: Spain vs. Argentina
Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies will miss the Olympics due to injury, but his big brother, Pau, will be ready to go for Spain. Will he, Ricky Rubio, and Nikola Mirotic be able to overcome the absences of Gasol and Serge Ibaka, who is sitting out the Games? Will Mirotic finally trim his beard? Tune in and see. This should be one of the best games of the group stage. Spain won silver in 2012 and Argentina was fourth.
