Gymnastics are one of the most anticipated events at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Qualification subdivisions start on July 23 and the last gymnastics final is on August 3. Coverage will be rebroadcast during primetime on NBC and you can stream select events live on Peacock for free.

Women will compete on four apparatuses: balance beam, floor exercise, uneven bars, and vault. Men will compete on six apparatuses: floor exercise, horizontal bar, parallel bars, pommel horse, rings, and vault.

On Team USA, Simon Biles is looking to repeat her successful performance at the 2016 Rio Olympics where she won four gold medals and one bronze medal. If the Olympic favorite earns gold again in the all-around, she will become the first female athlete with back-to-back wins in the all-around since 1968.

How to watch Olympic gymnastics

Complete coverage of the 2020 Olympic gymnastics competition is available to stream live on the NBCOlympics website or NBC sports app if you have a pay-TV provider with access to NBC. Since most of the gymnastics events occur early in the morning, NBC is rebroadcasting select portions during their primetime coverage.

Outside of NBC, Peacock is streaming select live coverage of the 2020 Olympics for free. On Peacock, you can watch the men’s and women’s Olympic gymnastics qualification subdivisions that feature Team USA, as well as all of the gymnastics finals.

(Free Plan) (small)

If you’re looking to watch NBC’s primetime coverage without cable, you can use a live TV streaming service like Sling TV, FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, or YouTube TV. Sling’s Blue plan is the most budget-friendly of the bunch at $35/month, and new customers can get their first month for only $10. That said, NBC is only available in select markets, so be sure to check Sling’s website for availability first.
