If you're a Simone Biles fan (and, let's be honest, who isn't?), you're probably just as excited as I am that the Tokyo Olympics are starting this week. With the competition heating up and the USA gymnastics team looking ready to dominate, you're probably wondering when you can watch them on TV?

This year, there are plenty of ways to watch the Games, whether you're ready to cheer along in real time or primetime. From TV channels to apps to streaming services, it's easier than ever to customize your viewing schedule this summer, so you won't miss a single flip. And, it's the Olympics so anything can happen.

In fact, Simone Biles had to pull out of the team gymnastics final unexpectedly. After landing her vault, she paused with the trainer before walking off the floor with the doctor. "Simone has withdrawn from the team final competition due to a medical issue," read a statement from USA Gymnastics, per ESPN. "She will be assessed daily to determine medical clearance for future competitions." Simone's teammates continued competing and secured the silver medal for the U.S.

Here's all the USA Gymnastics info you need to catch your favorite athletes live this July and August:
