10:00a - 10:45a Equestrian

The United States hasn't won gold in individual jumping since 1984, but has Chris Kappler won silver in 2004 and Beezie Madden took bronze four years ago in Beijing.

10:45a - 11:00a Track & Field

Qualifying heats in several events, including the men’s 5000m. That event should pit Somalian-born Londoner Mo Farah against Bernard Lagat, the Kenyan-born U.S. record holder who beat Lagat for the 2011 world crown.

11:00a - 12:45p Men's Volleyball

Seeking to win back-to-back Olympic golds in men’s Volleyball, Team USA begins knockout-round play against Italy, which won three of five opening-round matches and is looking to earn its first medal since a silver in 2004.

12:45p - 1:10p Canoe/Kayak

Four gold-medal races at Lee Valley will be contested: the men’s K-1 1000m and K-2 1000m, the men’s C-1 1000m, and women’s K-4 500m.

1:10p - 2:00p Track & Field

Team USA’s bid for its first men’s Water Polo gold medal in 108 years has a tough start in the elimination round, as Croatia has allowed just 29 goals while going 5-0. The US won its first three games before dropping two to Serbia and three-time reigning gold medalist Hungary.

Men's BMX qualifying.

4:40p - 5:00p Track & Field

Thanks for the list of list of today’s events: I completely forgot about the gold medal rounds for competitive canoeing and kayaking. I used my Dish Remote Access App to set recording for those events since I can’t get enough of that canoeing. I’ve been using the app to watch live coverage and recorded matches when I’ve been away from home. I watched last night’s primetime coverage on my commute to Dish this morning and wondered if canoeing/kayaking will be part of the mainstream for the 2016 Summer Games.
