2016 Summer Olympics: Here's the schedule of events for Sunday

It’s been two weeks of ups and downs in Rio, surprises vs. what was expected and, in at least one case, the police were involved.

Today, the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, which has been a successful one for the United States, is coming to an end. The closing ceremony for the Games will take place Sunday night, but there are still quite a few medals on the line before then.

USA’s men’s basketball team goes for gold against Serbia at 2:30 (ET), and there’s track and field and cycling events left. Rhythmic gymnastics begins at 10 a.m.

Closing ceremonies air on NBC from 8- 10:30 p.m. ET. The broadcast is on a one-hour tape delay. Just prior to that is a one hour special that highlights the best moments from the Games. 

Here’s a look at some of the events set for Sunday.


The Summer Games are being broadcast on NBC, Telemundo, Bravo, CNBC,MSNBC, NBC Sports Network, the Golf Channel, NBC Universo and USA Network. That’s just for TV. The rest of the coverage is digital. Check here for the TV schedule.
