Here’s a small selection of the ones to watch…
Two-time world silver medallist Jade Carey will be vying for the podium in the floor exercise as she looks to win an individual medal at her debut Olympics.
A top three finish will ensure Carey, who is coached by her dad Brian, joins the list of five Americans headed by Simone Biles, who have medalled on floor. Her event gets underway at 17:57 JST on Friday evening in Tokyo (1:57am on Monday in her native Arizona).
JuVaughn Harrison, winner of the U.S. Olympic Trials in both the long jump and high jump, returns to the field to compete in the long jump.

World record holder Keni Harrison and Gabriele Cunningham will be in action in a loaded women’s 100m hurdles final. Americans have medalled at each final in the 100m hurdles since Sydney 2000. At Rio 2016, the U.S. had a clean sweep of the medals. The event gets underway at 11:50 JST.
National record holder Valarie Allman is America’s sole contender in the discus, and has set her eyes on winning a first major senior title. She will be throwing at 20:00 JST.

The USWNT will take on Canada in the football semi-finals with kick-off slated for 1700 JST (400 ET). The USA reached its sixth Olympic semi-final after defeating the Netherlands on penalties in the quarter-finals.
This will be the third time the two teams will be meeting at the Olympics, the most recent coming in a dramatic 2012 semi-final in which the U.S. slipped past Canada, 4-3. If the USA wins Monday’s duel they will face the winner between Australia and Sweden.
Adeline Gray, the five-time world champion could clinch her first Olympic gold in after reaching the women’s 76kg final that will be on from 19:30 JST, 4.30am in her native Colorado.
