Rio Olympics: What to Watch on Day 6 — All-Around Gold Awaits Simone Biles

Plus: Phelps and Lochte's final duel in the pool

Joyce Eng

Day 6 of the Rio Olympics is all about Simone Biles. But if gymnastics isn't your speed, here's all the big stuff you should keep an eye out for on Thursday, Aug. 11 (all times ET).

All events are live-streamed at NBCOlympics.com. Find out all the ways to watch the Olympics here.

Rio Olympics: Stars to watch

Gymnastics, women's all-around final
3:00 p.m. (live); 8:00 p.m. (tape delay)
With all due respect to the other incredibly talented gymnasts, the only name you need to know is Simone Biles. The three-time reigning world all-around champion is the overwhelming favorite to win the only title missing from her trophy case (and that's only because she had never been to an Olympics before Rio). She would be the fourth-straight American to win the Olympic all-around title. Aly Raisman will try to make the podium four years after missing out on a bronze because of a tiebreaker.

Swimming, men's 200-meter individual medley final
10:01 p.m.
It's the end of an era: This will be Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte's final duel in the pool. The three-time defending champion, Phelps is gunning for an unprecedented fourth straight gold. Lochte, the world record holder in the 200 IM since 2009, won silver, bronze and silver here in the last three Olympics. They're the top two qualifiers in the final.
