Here’s When to Tune In to See Team USA Gymnasts Compete at the Olympics
The women will be competing until August 3rd.
The women’s gymnastics is always one of our favorite events at the Olympics, and at this year’s Games, Team USA is one of the best it’s ever been. With Simone Biles leading the charge, you know watching the competition is going to be impressive. With the Olympics taking place in Tokyo, though, some of the event times might be hard to keep track of, but don’t worry, we’ve put together a schedule of when to turn on your TV to catch the women’s gymnastics in action.
Keep in mind that NBC and its affiliates and streaming apps will be airing Olympics coverage at all hours of the day and will rerun popular events during primetime, but this schedule will let you know when the events are live. Make sure to check your local listings if you have cable or tune in with the NBC app, on Peacock, or an Olympics app for all the coverage.

Biles, Sunisa Lee, Jordan Chiles, and Grace McCallum will represent Team USA in the finals. The group struggled during the qualifying round, finishing in second place behind Russia, but scoring starts over in the finals, meaning the U.S. women can still win gold.

In Olympics past, there has also been an added showcase at the end of the Games for the gymnasts to perform more casually (and not competitively), but it remains to be seen if some such event will happen in Tokyo. As it is, this Olympics is wildly different from any in years’ past, but a bit of fun at the end might bring a little bit of lightness. In any case, we’ll be tuning in to see how many medals Team USA brings home!
