One of the two in which medals will be handed out is canoe/kayak, with the men’s kayak single slalom competition coming to an end. Fifteen men are part of the semifinal round, with American Michal Smolen among those looking to win a medal. The semifinals begin at 12:30 p.m. Eastern, with the finals scheduled to start at 2:15 p.m. Eastern.

While no medals will be awarded in sailing Wednesday, it will be a busy day at the Marina da Gloria as races in the men’s Finn, men’s Laser, women’s Laser Radial, mixed Nacra 17, men’s 470 and women’s 470 will be held beginning at Noon Eastern. Among the athletes competing Wednesday are Brazil’s Robert Scheidt (men’s Laser) and Americans Stu McNay and Dave Hughes (men’s 470). Also competing are Americans Annie Haeger and Briana Provancha in the women’s 470, and after winning gold in the Rio test event they’re expected to contend for a medal this week.

In shooting, medals will be awarded in the 50 meter air pistol and double trap, with reigning Olympic gold medalist Jin Jong-oh of South Korea and Hoang Xuan Vinh of Vietnam among the contender in the 50 meter air pistol. Vinh won gold in the 10 meter air pistol, an event won by Jin in London four years ago. The United States will be represented in the competition by Jay Shi and Will Brown, with both looking to perform better than they did in the 10 meter air pistol as neither qualified for the final round.
