20th Aug - 2016 Olympics schedule

Olympic 2016 - Aug 20

Golf (9:30 a.m.): Women's final round. The only other time women's golf was part of the Olympics, the U.S. swept the medals in 1900. That's quite unlikely in Rio, given South Korea's dominance on the professional tours.

Triathlon (1 p.m.): Women's race. American Gwen Jorgensen is currently an overwhelming favorite, having won seven straight World Triathlon Series events. Triathlon has been part of the Olympic program since 2000, and the U.S. has collected one medal, a bronze in 2004.

Basketball (5:30 p.m.): Women's final. There's no reason to believe the U.S., on a 41-game Olympic winning streak, won't take a sixth straight gold. It'll likely be a matchup with Australia, France or Spain.

Diving (6:30 p.m.): Men's platform final. The sport's marquee event is the last of eight in the Olympic diving program. In 2012, American David Boudia won the first U.S. diving gold since 2000. As was the case four years ago, he's currently looking up at Chinese divers in the run-up to the Olympics.

Soccer (7:30 p.m.): Men's final. Will Brazil, perhaps led by Neymar, make it to the gold-medal game at the Maracan´┐Ż with a shot at winning its first Olympic men's soccer title?

Track and Field (10 p.m.): The last night of competition includes the 4x400m relays, where the U.S. is traditionally strong. However, the U.S. men were upset by the Bahamas at London 2012, and the U.S. women fell to Russia at the 2013 Worlds. The U.S. could earn more medals in the men's 1500m (8 p.m.) and women's 800m (8:15).

Volleyball (12:15 a.m. on Aug 21): Women's final. Brazil defeated the U.S. in the last two Olympic finals. But the Americans, now with Karch Kiraly coaching, swept Brazil in the 2014 World Championships semifinals en route to gold.
