Olympic Diving 2016: Dates, Start Times, TV Schedule, Live Stream

The excitement in the pool at the 2016 Olympics will go beyond the swimming contingent.

While most eyes in Rio de Janeiro will be on Team USA swimmer Michael Phelps in his final Olympics, the men’s and women’s diving competitions — which feature some impressive acrobatics — also will be compelling.

China usually dominates the sport, but Team USA has a few divers who could give the Chinese a run for their money on the podium.

Here’s how you satisfy your craving for diving in Rio.
