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

Stories about poor water quality in Rio de Janeiro now must give way to those about winning and losing, as rowing competitions begin at the 2016 Olympics.

The assorted Olympic rowing events will take place between Aug. 6 and Aug. 13 in Rio’s Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon.

The United States women’s eight rowing team headlines the sport as it seeks to extend its dominance through a third consecutive Olympics. The U.S. eight hasn’t lost an Olympic or world championship since 2006, putting it among sports’ all-time great dynasties.

Other teams also will vie to make a splash in Rio, albeit with all the precautions necessary to ensure athletes’ safety.

Take a look below at the full event schedule, TV listings and live stream info.
