It was another winning night for Team USA on Wednesday night, with medals going to to swimmers and on particular gymnist. And if the ratings for Tuesday night's primetime coverage of the Olympics on NBC are any indication, there are plenty of people watching when the women won the gold for their relay and the men took the mat for more gymnastic events. See what's on tonight's line-up ahead!
Day 6 offers more gymnastics, this time for the women. And a few more swimming events, including the Men's 200M individual medley, which is Round 2 of Michael Phelps vs. Ryan Lochte. But before we get to that, let's hear it for Danell Levya, the Cuban-born American gymnast who earned himself (and Team USA!) a bronze medal last night. Check him out on the High Bar for the All Around here. Meanwhile, the Australians gave the American's a swim for their money in the 4x200m Relay, which you can watch here. But the race was even closer for U.S. swimmer Nathan Adrian, who also faced steep competition with Australia, whose James Magnussen was right at his side when this race finished.
