Gymnastics and swimming highlight Thursday’s Olympic action, with Americans Michael Phelps and Simone Biles poised to take home more medals.
Michael Phelps continues his pursuit of more gold medals, and Simone Biles and Aly Raisman look to extend a historic U.S. streak in women’s gymnastics on Thursday night as Olympic action continues.
Phelps and countryman Ryan Lochte will duel in the Men’s 200M individual medley final, and with a win can become the first Olympic swimmer ever to win the same event four times. Several other swimming finals will also go down Thursday.
Biles’s quest to become the fourth straight American women’s champ in the all-around competition makes for a full night of coverage, with NBC showing the main events beginning at 8 p.m. ET. She will compete against fellow American Aly Raisman (who can also extend the streak) for gold.
