11th Aug-2016 Olympics schedule

Olympic 2016 - Aug 11

Judo (5:30 p.m.): Women's 78kg medal rounds. In 2012, Kayla Harrison became the first U.S. Olympic judo champion. She's since missed a year due to knee surgery and was beaten at the 2014 World Championships, by Brazilian rival Mayra Aguiar.

Gymnastics (6 p.m.): Women's all-around final. The U.S. could put two women on the podium, and as of today two-time reigning World champion Simone Biles is a heavy favorite. London all-around champ Gabby Douglas just started her comeback, as did fourth-place Aly Raisman. Again, Russia, China and Romania should field the biggest threats.

Rugby (7:30 p.m.): Men's medal matches. Watch out for Fiji, which has never won an Olympic medal in any sport but is ranked second in this season's World Series.

Swimming (12 a.m. next day on Aug 12): It could be a busy night for Lochte with the 200m back and 200m IM finals. He's won medals in both events at the last two Olympics. Phelps could join him in the 200m IM final, looking for his fourth straight Olympic title in the event. Japan's Kosuke Hagino, however, won the event over the Americans at the Pan Pacific Championships last August. The 100m free final could include Franklin, rising star Simone Manuel and the fast Aussies.
