We review which athletes from Team USA to keep your eye on in Sunday’s events at the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

The biggest star of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics takes to the platform on Sunday morning, as Simone Biles and the rest of Team USA hit the four disciplines of gymnastics to qualify as a team (it won’t be a problem), as well as for the individual all-around competition and event finals.

Also newly-minted NBA Champions Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday join Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard, and the rest of Team USA to begin the USA’s quest to win their fourth-straight Olympic gold medal in men’s basketball. The USA certainly struggled in the exhibition season to get ready for the Games, but it’s a whole new ball game with a full roster and focus in Tokyo.

Here’s a list of who to keep an eye on Sunday for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
