Rio 2016 Day 1 saw 16 Calympians in action from rowing, water polo, soccer, table tennis, and of course, swimming.

Day 2 will have 9 Calympians competing in just 2 sports: 2 rowers racing in repechage (elimination races) in the morning and then 7 swimmers. 4 different countries will be represented - Serbia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and U.S.A.

More swimming is on deck for Calympians in Day 2. As many as 4 more medals can be won by the Calympians by the end of the night.

Women’s 400 Free - 7:01 PM PT

Men’s 4x100 Free Relay - 7:52 PM PT

Calympians to watch:

Lauren Boyle (New Zealand) in Women’s 400 Free prelim and (hopefully) final

Anthony Ervin (USA) and Nathan Adrian (USA) in Men’s 4x100 Free prelim and final

Ryan Murphy (USA) - 100 Back final is not until Monday (8/8) night but Murphy is capable of setting world records in the heat and/or semi ;

Men’s 100 Back semifinal, heat 1 - 7:20 PM PT

Kathleen Baker (USA) - Women’s 100 Back semifinal, heat 2 - 7:44 PM PT


Rest of Day 2 schedule for Calympians

All Times listed are in PDT.

Men’s Rowing repechage starts at 4:30 AM - CANCELLED

Marko Marjanovic (Serbia) - Double Sculls

Nareg Guregian (USA) - Coxless Pair

A Serbian pair in the Coxless Pair (so NOT Calympian Marko Marjanovic and partner) on Saturday capsized due to high wind. Rowing is cancelled on Sunday due to the conditions. A condensed schedule will unfortunately mean less recovery time for the Calympians who can win the repechage races.

Women’s Gymnastics - all day

Toni-Ann Williams (Jamaica)

Swimmers - prelim 9 AM, semifinals 6 PM

Kathleen Baker (USA) - Women’s 100 Back

Yvette Kong (Hong Kong) - Women’s 100 Breast


Calympians Medal Count:

2 Silvers (entering Day 2)

Dana Vollmer (USA) - Silver from Women’s 4x100 Free Relay

Abbey Weitzeil (USA) - Silver from Women’s 4x 100 Free Relay
