Default Day 11 (PM of August 2 - AM of August 3)

As always check out the CBC Sports Website for streaming links, or CBC Gem of the CBC Olympics App. There's also some other non-Canadian content overnight like wrestling, other basketball, handball and some field hockey.

At 18:00 Canada takes on the state sponsored doping team in the Quarterfinal in Menís Volleyball. I think this will be on SN or SN1.

Starting off at 18:00 Track & Field begins, most of the events should be covered on CBC. It begins with the Qualification for Menís Triple Jump. At 18:05 Round 1 of the Menís 1500m Heats start. Womenís Javelin Throw Qualification begins at 18:20, Liz Gleadle competes in Group A. At 18:45 Round 1 of the Womenís 400m starts, Kyra Constantine runs in Heat 1, Natassha McDonald is in Heat 5. The Final for the Womenís Long Jump starts at 19:50.

The Womenís K1 200m Semifinal begins at 18:30, this should be on either SN or SN1. Michelle Russell is in the first race, Andreanne Langlois is in the second race. The Final is scheduled for 20:30.

The Menís C2 1000m Semifinals begin at 18:44, this should be on either SN or SN1. Roland Varga and Connor Fitzpatrick are in the second race. The Final should start at 20:45.

At 19:00 the Menís K1 1000m Semifinals begin and it should be on SN or SN1. At 21:12 the Final is scheduled to start.

The Menís 3m Springboard Diving Semifinal starts at 19:00. The Final is at 00:00 and I believe will be shown on CBC.

The Womenís K2 500m Semifinal begins at 19:23 and should be on SN or SN, the Final is scheduled for 21:39.

The Menís 200m Round 1 begins at 20:05, Andre de Grasse tries to improve on the Silver Medal in this event from Rio in Heat 3, Aaron Brown is in Heat 5, Brendon Rodney is in Heat 7.

At 21:15 Race 9 in the 470 Men's Sailing begins. Jacob Saunders and Oliver Bone sail for Canada.

The Final of the Menís 400m Hurdles begins at 21:20

The high-powered USA Basketball team takes on Spain at 22:40, this should be on TSN.

At 23:00 Canada takes on the USA in a Quarterfinal match in Womenís Water Polo.

At 00:30 the First Round of the Womenís Team Pursuit Track Cycling begins, Canada and France are in Heat 2. The Final is scheduled for 02:05.

At 01:22 the Menís First Round in Team Pursuit Cycling starts. Canada and Germany are in Heat 1.

The Final for Menís Parallel Bars begins at 02:00.

Brazil faces Mexico in the first Semifinal in Menís Soccer at 02:00. The second Semifinal Match sees Japan take on Spain at 05:00.

Also at 02:00 the Menís Combined, Speed Qualification for Sport Climbing starts. Sean McColl is the Canadian competitor. At 03:00 the Bouldering section will begin. At 06:10 the Lead section begins.

At 02:53 the Final in the Womenís Beam begins. Canadaís Ellie Black, 5th place finisher in Rio, returns from the injury that kept her out of the All-Around Final. American superstar Simone Biles is also expected to return to competition. I believe this will be carried live on CBC.

At 04:00 Qualification in the Equestrian Jumping starts. Mario Deslauriers is the Canadian competitor.

At 04:10 Round 1 of the Menís 110m Hurdles begins. At 04:15 Qualification in the Menís Shot Put starts, Tim Nedow competes in Group A. At 04:20 the Menís Pole Vault Final begins. At 04:56 Round 1 of the Menís 5000m begins, Canadaís Mohammed Ahmed runs in Heat 1, Justyn Knight is in Heat 2. At 05:35 the Final of Womenís Hammer Throw begins. The Semifinals of the Menís 200m begins at 05:50. At 06:25 the Womenís 800m Final begins. At 06:50 the Womenís 200m Final starts. The morning Athletics Events should be on CBC.

The Technical Routine of the Womenís Duet Artistic Swimming starts at 04:30. Calgaryís Claudia Holzner and Jacqueline Simoneau compete for Canada.

At 06:00 Heather Bansley and Brandie Wilkerson take on a Latvian team in a Quarterfinal match in Beach Volleyball. Sarah Pavan and Melissa Humana-Paredes take on an Australian team at 07:00. I believe that both of these matches will be on TSN2.

Mohammed Ahmed is such a funny name. He is both Mo Ahmed and Mohammed.

The ROC punishment, if it can even be called one, is a "maximum fine allowed by the CBA" slap on the wrist for Russia. Their medals are probably being grouped with Russia's lifetime olympic totals, their clothing gets to have the country's colors, and they get a Tchaikovsky song instead of the generic olympic anthem at medal ceremonies. I doubt this discourages anyone from doping in the future.

It is a complete joke, and it is insulting to athletes around the world that compete clean.

Canada dropped the first set in Volleyball but closed the gap near the end. Have to start better for the second set. It is on SN

Volleyball observations


In the men's game I am surprised we don't see more bloody noses. The serves look like bullets. Guys returning serves getting knocked backward. Surprised they don't radar gun that as part of the presentation. The time between spike and return reaction to get the ball is nearly superhuman.

Another observation


Handball goalies have to be either the bravest people in sport or the craziest. Or possibly both.

De Grasse looking pretty gassed there afterwards. Still a little tired from the 100m competition, combined with classic "Canadian in 38 degrees & humid" conditions probably.
