The Olympics start this Friday and the opening ceremonies will quickly be followed by every swim-bike-runners’ favorite event: the Olympic triathlon races. Plus, this year the new mixed team relay adds an exciting tri element you won’t want to miss.
With the time difference, the early starts in Japan (6:30 a.m. local time) mean prime-time viewing for the U.S. Just remember to set your alarm and line up your DVR (or respective streaming service) so you catch all the action. Here’s how and who to watch.
