The Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony is now behind us, marking the official commencement of the Games. We at Athlete Voices embrace all sports, but we shine a spotlight on aesthetic, performative sports like rhythmic gymnastics, figure skating, artistic swimming and dance, as such sports are largely underrepresented in American mainstream media.

With that said, here is a detailed schedule of NBC’s coverage of the following summer Olympic sports: Men/Women Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics and Artistic Swimming. All times are reported in Pacific Daylight Time.

About Belicia Tang

Belicia, a former competitive rhythmic gymnast, dedicated ten years of her life to the sport. During her time as a gymnast, Belicia witnessed and experienced firsthand many of the struggles shared by competitive athletes. Then, at age 15, she suffered a knee injury that resulted in an abrupt transition out of the sport. She turned to writing and blogging as a means to cope and eventually was able to find new interests outside of gymnastics. Combining her passions for writing and aesthetic sports, she launched Athlete Voices (formerly The Athlete’s Corner) in 2018 to share the stories of extraordinary athletes who achieve excellence both on and off the competitive stage. Belicia graduated from UCLA with a degree in psychology and is currently earning her Master’s in sports psychology. In her free time, she enjoys competing in Latin ballroom dance, writing, and practicing yoga.
