Elsewhere, there’s plenty of hope for U.S. track and field gold tonight, April Ross and Alix Klineman continue their quest for gold in beach volleyball, and the U.S. baseball team are looking to set up a rematch for the gold medal with Japan. Here’s a look at the top US-focused events on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Plenty of Americans to watch out for in this series of track and field events, and most medal events feature at least a good chance for gold for the United States. Will Claye is a gold medal contender in the triple jump, Ryan Crouser is the favorite in the shot put and Grant Holloway is the world’s best in the 110m hurdles. In the women’s pole vault, Katie Nageotte has the two highest jumps of 2021. Michael Norman’s personal best in the 400m is better than anyone on the field, even though she is two years off the field. As usual, highlights from the evening East Coast Time races will air on the NBC show. The morning session will be broadcast live in the United States. The march is live on NBCSN.

Baseball
