The 2021 Olympics are underway and gymnastics, one of the most high profile events in the Summer Games, has gotten underway. The men’s qualifications began late Friday night and the women’s get underway late Saturday. Both will get air time, but the women’s gymnastics competitions will be one of the prime focuses for NBC thanks to legendary gymnast Simone Biles.
Five years ago at Rio 2016, Biles took home four gold medals, including the team all-around and individual medals for individual all-around, vault, and floor exercise. She added a bronze for her work on the balance beam.
Biles will be looking to add to her legendary resume as she looks to repeat her gold medals across the board. She opens with qualifying early Sunday morning, moves on to the team final on the 27th, and wraps on the 3rd with the balance beam final. It appears she won’t be competing in the individual uneven bars separate from individual all-around, but we’ll leave it as TBD for the time being.
Below is Biles’ complete schedule for the 2021 Summer Olympics. NBC will be broadcasting all the gymnastics events, although it will be a mix of tape delay and live coverage. However, You can stream every event live at NBCOlympics.com, through the NBC Sports app, and on Peacock TV. Click here to see the daily schedule of NBC network coverage of the Olympics.
