In a sport of tenths and hundredths, the American women are expected to demolish the competition by points to win their second straight team gold and third overall. They qualified first with a 10-point (!) spread over China. How big will the final point spread be? Greatest of All Time-in-the-making Simone Biles will lead the way on a team that includes Fierce Five alums Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas -- the first U.S. gymnasts to make back-to-back Olympics since 2000 -- and rookies Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian.


Swimming, men's 200-meter butterfly final
9:28 p.m.
Phelps will try to reclaim the gold in his signature event from South African Chad le Clos, who stunningly upset him in London and hasn't gotten out of his face about it. Phelps qualified second; le Clos, fourth.
