Olym-Picks: Which Summer Games events to watch on Friday, Day 14
Not sure you want to watch all that the Summer Games has to offer? Here are a few events you may not want to miss (Team USA is sure to take a win in basketball! Again!). If you want to watch them live at nbcolympics.com (if you're not in the U.K.) or just wait for the prime time digest on NBC is up to you.
Men's basketball -- USA vs. Argentina (watch live at 1:00 p.m. PT, 4:00 p.m. ET)
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We all know Team USA is gonna win.
Men's and women's BMX (watch live at 7:00 a.m. PT, 10:00 a.m. ET)
The women's semifinals start at 7:00 a.m. PT, the men's at 7:08 a.m. ET, and finals happen at 8:30 a.m. PT and 8:40 a.m. ET respectively. Anything could happen, as BMX at the London Olympics has been marked by crashes -- more than 20 on Thursday alone. Because the course in London has big jumps and tight corners, it's shaping to be one of the most difficult in the world.
Rhythmic gymnastics (watch live at 4:00 a.m. PT, 7:00 a.m. ET)
In the individual all-around competition rotations 3 and 4 will compete with the clubs and ribbon; in the group competition, nations will perform with three ribbons and two hoops.
Men's and women's track & field (watch live at 11:00 a.m. PT, 2:00 p.m. ET)
Don't miss the finals in the men's pole vault, women's hammer throw, women's 5000m, women's 1500m, women's 4x100m relay and men's 4x400m relay.
Men's water polo - USA vs. Spain (watch live at 6:20 a.m. PT, 9:20 a.m. ET)
The men aren't in a running for a medal anymore, but they'll battle Spain anyway to get their ranking. Sigh.
