Rio Olympics: Stars to watch

Gymnastics, men's all-around final
3:00 p.m. (live); 8:00 p.m. (tape delay)
Reigning champ Kohei Uchimura of Japan will try to be the first man to defend the all-around title since his countryman Sawao Kato did it 44 years ago. Sam Mikulak is the U.S.' best shot for a medal.

Swimming, men's 100-meter freestyle final
10:03 p.m.
The glamour event of swimming should be a fierce battle between defending champ Nathan Adrian, who became the first American to win this race since 1988 in London, and Aussie Cameron McEvoy, who has posted the fastest time in the 100m this year. Adrian edged McEvoy's teammate, James Magnussen, by one-hundredth of a second four years ago. Adrian is the top qualifier; McEvoy, third.
