TOKYO — The Tokyo Olympics officially began on Wednesday with the first games of the softball and women’s soccer competitions — and almost immediately there was a stunning result.

The U.S. women’s soccer team lost, 3-0, to Sweden in its opener, ending its 44-game unbeaten streak and giving the Americans a more challenging path out of their group.

Among the events scheduled for Wednesday night into Thursday morning Eastern time, the U.S. softball team should get its first real test against Canada at 8 p.m. Eastern; and the men’s soccer tournament will begin, with compelling matches between Mexico and France (4 a.m. Eastern) and Brazil and Germany (7:30 a.m.). The Opening Ceremonies are set for Friday at 7 a.m. Eastern.
