The inaugural edition of women’s and mens 3-on-3 basketball (3x3, per the Olympics) wraps up the morning of Wednesday, July 28 with the semifinals, bronze medal, and gold medal contests. The semifinals get started at 4 a.m. and the goal medal games will wrap as people are headed into work. The USA is favored to win the women’s tournament.

The men’s gymnastic all-around is the big team event on Wednesday, but Rugby Sevens, men’s synchronised diving, and the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay are major team events. Katie Ledecky leads the way in individual events as she looks to finally get an Olympic crack at the 1500 meter freestyle. She holds all the fastest times in the event, but this is the first time she’ll get to swim it in the Olympics.

NBC will offer a variety of channels and times for live and replay coverage, but you’re guaranteed to be able to watch everything at Men’s gymnastics will also air on Peacock TV.
