The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero are in good stead for Friday's opening ceremony — if you look past the subpar living conditions for the athletes, serious health hazards, economic hardship and terrorist threats, that is. But the show must go on, and the world's greatest athletes must compete.

For the U.S., amidst the plethora of sports and athletes competing during the Olympics, the country is poised to have another strong outing in women's gymnastics — highlighted by Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles. But how can the Team USA matches be watched online?

NBC, the network hosting the United States' 2016 Olympics coverage, will have all of the gymnastics events available on its livestream at NBCOlympics.com. Per Vulture, NBC will have over 4,500 hours of Olympics content. You can check out the full Olympics livestream schedule here

With that, be sure to check out this year's women's gymnastics competition. If not, you'll risk leaving McKayla Maroney unimpressed. Don't do that.
