What to Watch: Rio Olympics Day 14

Posted: Updated:

Freestyle wrestling action continues in Rio on Day 14 with another top wrestler from the United States in action.  Defending Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs wrestles in Rio with hopes of becoming a legend in his sport.

Also, the semifinals in men's basketball tip off, and most expect Team USA to be leading the way into the final game for a third-straight Olympics.

Catch the final for the men's and women's BMX competition where anything can happen in a race that takes less than a minute to complete. It starts with a hellish drop-in where riders furiously pedal through repeated jumps, 180-degree banking turns and finally across the finish line with muscles screaming.

In two events not to be missed in track and field, the men's and women's 4x100m relays are run in Rio. In 2012, the U.S. women set a world record and just might have the team to do it again in Rio. On the men's side, Jamaica, led by Usain Bolt, looks to continue its dominance for a third Olympic Games in a row.

And let us not forget on Day 14, the women's Olympic soccer competition concludes with bronze and gold medal matches.  Can Team USA make it four golds in a row in Rio?
