Team USA: Who to watch on day seven of Tokyo 2020 - Friday 30th July (and evening of Thursday 29th in U.S.)

Here's a small selection of the ones to watch...


With Caeleb Dressel delivering in droves yesterday it is now time for Michael Andrew to dive into in the pool. The swimmer came close to the world record in the 200m individual medley earlier this year in the U.S. swimming trials and will be one to look out for when his event gets underway at 11:16am JST on Friday in Tokyo (21:16 on Thursday night in his native Minnesota).


After a shocking start to their Olympic tournament the USWNT have progressed out of the group stages with each of a win, tie and loss. They face the their toughest test, the Netherlands, in the quarter-finals, with kick-off at 20:00 (JST).


The U.S. women's eight are bidding for a slice of history when they compete today at 10:05 (JST). They'll face stiff competition from the team from Romania, who set a 2021 world's best and Olympic best time of 5:52.99 in the heats yesterday. Should Team USA be victorious for a fourth time they will become the country with the most Olympic titles in the event.

Cycling BMX Racing

The cycling BMX racing competition continues today with the men's semi-finals getting the action underway. American Connor Fields, who is reigning men's Olympic champion from Rio 2016, will continue to mount his defence of the title - which will be later decided on Friday.


The U.S. women's basketball team will take on hosts Japan in their second group round game in the Olympic competition. Team USA are on the hunt for their seventh Olympic gold in the event (dating back to Atlanta 1996). Tipoff is set for 13:40 (JST).


Joe Klecher, Grant Fisher, and William Kincaid will all compete for the first track and field medal event of Tokyo 2020 in the men's 10,000m. And in rugby, the women's team will face reigning Olympic champions Australia at 10:30 (JST) as they try and bid for a quarter-final spot.
