With all the social media buzz around how crazy good the United States' women's gymnastics team was this weekend, it may be easy to forget that their male counterparts are competing, as well. On Monday, eight countries — including the U.S. — are scheduled to face off in the men's gymnastics team final.
The teams that made the cut for Monday include the U.S., China, Russia, Japan, Brazil, Great Britain, Germany and Ukraine, according to SBNation. They'll compete on the horizontal bar, parallel bars, floor, pommel horse, rings and vault. You can see the lineup for each event here on Google.
The U.S. men's gymnastics team came in fifth during the last Summer Games despite having the highest qualifying score, NBC reported. This time, the athletes — Danell Leyva, Sam Mikulak, Jacob Dalton, Alexander Naddour and Chris Brooks — are determined to perform better.
“We’re not going to be complacent this time,” Mikulak told the Los Angeles Times. “We’re going to make sure we come in with a chip on our shoulder. We’ve done nothing but qualify.”
“We try to perform like the world championships,” Kohei Uchimura told the Associated Press. “But we know this is the Olympic Games and this makes us stressed out.”
Luckily, you don't have to fret if you miss the 3 p.m. broadcast. You have a few other chances to watch men's gymnastics. The men's individual all-around finals are scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. EDT. Specific events have finals set for Sunday, Aug. 15 and Aug. 16.
