What to Watch: Rio Olympics Day 10

Posted: Updated:

One of the most grueling events in track cycling begins on Day 10. The Omnium, with its six races being held over two days, tests riders’ versatility as well as endurance.  Team USA's Sarah Hammer returns after a performance at the London Olympics where she won silver in the Omnium, missing the top podium spot by just one point.

Quarterfinals begin in men's beach volleyball, women's field hockey, and women's water polo.  The U.S. women's water polo team won gold in London and hope to repeat in Rio. 

Also, the event finals in gymnastics continue.  On Day 10 catch the men's rings, men's vault and women's balance beam.  Look for Simone Biles to again contend for another individual medal in Rio, this time on beam.

For a full rundown of the action in Rio check out the NBCOlympics.com streaming schedule.  Watch all of the events of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games live on NBCOlympics.com, the NBC Sports app, and on connected set-top boxes.

Derived from the Latin word meaning “all,” the Omnium is track cycling’s multi-race event.  Cyclists race on the velodrome (vélo is French for bike) in six separate races with names like scratch, elimination, individual pursuit, time trial, flying lap and points over two days. Riders receive points at the end of each race, but just like in golf, lowest score wins.  Returning to the Olympics, London gold medalist Laura Trott of Great Britain will look to defend her title against London silver medalist Sarah Hammer of the U.S. in the Omnium.

On the second day of event finals in gymnastics, Brazil’s Arthur Zanetti will look to repeat as “Lord of the Rings” in front of a home crowd.  The women’s balance beam competition belongs to the two-time world beam champion Simone Biles on paper, but anything can happen when flipping, spinning and leaping on a surface just 4” wide. In the men’s vault final, 35-year-old Marian Dragulescu of Romania will aim to cap off his comeback—he’s retired multiple times since winning three medals at the 2004 Olympics—with a gold medal.
