As the London Olympics head toward the end of its first week, the indoor swimming events are wrapping up (the long-distance outdoor swimming events remain). Only three days of indoor swimming remain, but the excitement we have seen over the past five days should continue through Saturday, as four finals remain on each of the three days.
On August 2, NBC will cover swimming between 10:00 and 10:15 a.m., 10:40-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-12:45 p.m. (all times EDT). NBC will then include swimming events in its nightly coverage between 8:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. EDT, including the 200-meter individual medley final that will see Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte square off.
NBC will resume its coverage of swimming on August 3, beginning at 10:45 a.m. EDT and continuing through 11:30 a.m. EDT. It will broadcast the 4x100 medley relay heats for both men and women, the men's 1,500-meter freestyle heats and the women's 50-meter freestyle semifinals.
Swimming coverage resumes between 2:00 and 2:30 p.m. EDT, including the heats for the men's and women's 4x100 medley relay. The day's swimming highlights will be broadcast during NBC's nightly coverage between 8:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. EDT., including the men's 100-meter butterfly final.
August 4 is the final day of indoor swimming at the Olympics. Only four races will be swum on that day, all finals. All four races will be broadcast as part of NBC's nightly coverage between 8:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. EDT.
Aside from NBC's television coverage of the remaining swimming events, live streaming of the remaining races is available at NBCOlympics.com.
