The Tokyo Olympics officially begin Friday with the Opening Ceremonies and end Aug. 8 with the Closing Ceremonies. Some events, such as softball and the men’s and women’s soccer tournaments, began Wednesday, before the official start of the Games.
The first medals will be handed out Saturday, followed by more than two weeks of dizzying action. Swimming and gymnastics probably will take center stage in the opening week. Many Olympic tournaments run nearly the duration of the Games, including basketball, baseball, softball, soccer and beach volleyball, and medals aren’t awarded until the final days.
Here’s the complete schedule of Olympic events, day by day. There is a 13-hour time difference between Tokyo and Washington. This schedule adjusts to local time zones. You can find television listings, in U.S. Eastern time, here.
