Day 1 at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio. I wonder if any of these contenders attended the opening ceremonies last night. Probably not, hopefully not because the opening ceremony as exciting as it was started late and ran long. With 7:30 start times, these Olympic athletes needed serious shuteye for today’s rowing heats at Lagoa Stadium.
Today’s rowing events:
7:30am Men’s single sculls
9:30am Men’s coxless pairs
10:00am Women’s double sculls
10:30am Men’s double sculls
