Four more finals will be held at the swimming venue Wednesday night, including the men’s 100 meter freestyle. Americans Nathan Adrian and Caeleb Dressel are part of the eight-man field, with Adrian rebounding from a poor first preliminary heat to post the fastest time of the semifinals. Adrian’s the reigning gold medalist in this event, and in addition to Dressel Australians Cameron McEvoy and Kyle Chalmers are expected to be contenders as well.

WATCH LIVE: Men’s 200 breast, Men’s 100 free, Women’s 200 butterfly, Women’s 4x200 free finals -- 9 p.m. Eastern

The men’s 200 breast will be the first final of the evening, with Josh Prenot and Kevin Cordes both making the field. Japan’s Ippei Watanabe established a new Olympic record in his semifinal heat, finishing in 2:07.22 to grab the top seed in the final. And with the world record not far off of that mark at 2:07.01, there’s a chance that the winner of this race could establish a new mark. Americans Hali Flickinger and Cammile Adams swim in the women’s 200 butterfly final, with Australia’s Madeline Groves the early favorite to win gold.

In the 4x200 free, a team anchored by Katie Ledecky will look to win yet another gold medal for the United States.

There are also semifinal heats in the women’s 100 free, 200 breaststroke and men’s 200 back being held Wednesday night, and Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps will be swimming in the men’s 200 IM semifinals. The women’s 200 breaststroke semifinals should also be interesting, with Russia’s Yulia Efimova swimming in heat one and American Lilly King in the second heat. King edged out Efimova for gold in the 100 breast, and the rivalry between the two competitors has made for interesting conversation at the swimming venue.

The action gets underway at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, and it will be streamed live at and on the NBC Sports app.
