How to watch the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Thursday events

TUCSON (NBC/KVOA) - The U.S. women's soccer team exited the gold medal conversation with a 1-0 loss to Canada in the semifinal, but will have to put that behind them and move on to the bronze medal match against Sam Kerr and Australia. The two teams played to an uneventful 0-0 draw during the group stage, but with an Olympic medal at stake, this matchup should prove to be more lively.

In the day's second track session, the U.S. will look for its 20th gold medal in the men's 400m, and 23-year-old Michael Norman could be the one to bring it home. This is Norman's first Olympics, but he already has U.S. Trials winner and 2019 Diamond League champion on his resume. He'll face tough competition in the form of current world No. 1 Steven Gardiner of Bahrain.

Over in the field, Team USA's Katie Nageotte is a contender in the women's pole vault final. Sandi Morris, the 2016 silver medalist, was injured during the qualifying round (after breaking her pole on an attempt) and missed the final.

After beating the Dominican Republic on Wednesday to avoid elimination, the United States now heads into a semifinal baseball game against South Korea. The winner will play Japan in the gold medal game two days later, while the loser will face the Dominican Republic in the bronze medal game.
