What's worth watching from the Rio Olympics on Monday

0

It's Day 3 of the Olympic Games. Set your DVR or plan your binge-watch accordingly.

(All times Eastern.)

Swimming

Michael Phelps already has a gold under his belt as part of the 400-meter freestyle relay team, but he's going for his first individual gold of the Rio games. He's already earned 23 medals overall, and if he wins the 200-meter butterfly, that'll be 20 golds, which is absurd. 

That starts at 12:34 p.m.

Other swimming events today include the finals for the men's and women's 100-meter backstroke, women's 100-meter breaststroke, and men's 200-meter freestyle finals.

Gymnastics

The men's team gymnastics finals start at 3 p.m. The United States didn't medal in 2012, when China took home the gold.

The women's team is off to a fantastic start. It was so dominant on Sunday, the only reason it's not sending more athletes to medal competition is the rules don't let them

Hopefully the men's team can pick up some of that momentum.

Basketball

Do you like close games? Then you probably shouldn't watch this. Do you like Team USA winning by such a huge margin that maybe there should be a "mercy rule?" Then you'll enjoy this.

The United States beat China in a preliminary-round game by a lopsided 119-62 margin. The team takes on Venezuela at 6 p.m.

The women's team will take on Spain at 11 a.m, and should be just as dominant.
