2012 Summer Olympics: Schedule for August 6

The schedule is back after a day off!  I apologize if you were looking forward to it yesterday. To make up for it, here are today’s important events!

Team USA kicks off women’s boxing, faces Canada in a crucial women’s soccer semifinal match and plays Argentina in men’s basketball. We’ve also got athletes going for gold in women’s pole vault, women’s shot put, women’s steeplechase and men’s 400m hurdles, as well as some track and field semifinals and huge men’s volleyball matches, with Team USA against Tunisia indoors and Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal in an elimination match on the beach against Latvia.
