It's going to be hard to top Tuesday's level of excitement (and surprise) for the U.S. Olympics team. This all happened yesterday:
- Michael Phelps won two golds, in the 200-meter butterfly and the 4x200 freestyle relay, bringing his all-time total to 21 golds
- Katie Ledecky brought home her second gold of the games in the 200-meter freestyle
- The U.S. women's gymnastics team absolutely dominated, with an eight-point win for the all-around (that's kind of like winning 8-0 in soccer)
- The women's soccer team only tied Colombia, despite being heavy favorites
- Serena Williams, the top seed in tennis, lost -- she's out of the Games
Got all that? Good. Here's what's on tap for Wednesday. (All times Eastern)
The U.S. men's basketball team takes on Australia at 6 p.m., who should put up a bit of a fight thanks to five NBA players on the down-under squad.
Calling all early birds! American cyclist Kristin Armstrong is a two-time defending champion in the women's time trial. The event starts at 7:30 a.m.
Don't expect American dominance like last night's U.S. women's team blowout. Two U.S. men, Chris Brooks and Sam Mikulak, will compete, but aren't favorites, according to USA Today. That all starts at 3 p.m.
Michael Phelps could potentially add another gold medal to his already crowded neck with the 200-meter individual medley. Qualifying heats for that event start today at 1 p.m., with the medal round on Thursday.
