Summer Olympic Games Rio 2016 Day 1 and More

   

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

11:00am Men’s quadruple sculls
