Women's basketball preliminaries - USA vs. France 12:40 am

With a 51-game winning streak dating back from Barcelona 1992, the U.S. women's basketball team will face France as they keep showcasing their dominance at these Tokyo Games. The team will try to avoid the male's fate when they lost to France in their first match of the Olympics.

Gymnastics finals - Men's rings, Women's floor exercise, Men's vault - 4:15 am

The United States will expect that the athletes will fare better in the individual events. However, the status of Simone Biles remains the same. She will not participate in the all-around competition, the vault and uneven bars finals, or the floor exercise.

The men will be waiting to see if Brody Malone or Sam Mikulak can help Team USA compete in the all-around on Wednesday morning. They have qualified for the event but ranked below the top 10 of the competition.

Men's Greco-Roman wrestling semifinals and finals - 5:15 am.

The day will start with the Men's Greco-Roman 60 kg Final, followed by the Men's Greco-Roman 130 kg Final, and, finally, the Women's Freestyle 76 kg final.

Fumita Kenichiro will take on Cuba's Luis Orta in the 60 kg Greco-Roman men's finals. At the 130 kg men's final, 38-year-old gold-medal winner Mijain Lopez Nunez of Cuba will battle Georgia's Iakobi Kajaia.

Men's basketball quarterfinals - 9 pm.

Team USA will face Spain in the first match of the day. The reigning 2019 FIBA World Cup Champions will not be an easy team to beat for the United States. They have four NBA players on their roster and plenty of former ones, including Pau Gasol. The Americans are 12-0 all-time against Spain at the Olympics, but the margin of points per win has shortened over the years by winning by just eight points on average against the Europeans.

Track and field finals - Women's long jump, Men's 400m hurdles, Men's pole vault, Women's hammer throw Women's 200m - 9:50 pm

The finishing line for track and field will signal the end of the Olympics. With no Usain Bolt this year, this portion of the games seems a bit simple. But feats like the one done by Yulimar Rojas on the long jump remind everyone why this portion of the Games is one of the most anticipated.
