Synchronized swimming debuts at Rio 2016 in a slate of five mid-morning sports on Sunday.

It’s preliminary duets free routine which gets us started, and USA pairing Anita Alvarez -- from this writer’s hometown of the Town of Tonawanda in Western New York -- and Mariya Koroleva represents the country’s shot at gold.

Two USA boxers climb inside the ropes on Sunday, with bantamweight fighter Shakur Stevenson making his much-anticipated debut against Brazilian boxer Robenilson De Jesus.

USA’s light welterweight Gary Russell will tangle with Wuttichai Masuk of Thailand a bit later.

Day 9 also continues in equestrian, team table tennis, and men’s field hockey.
