Gymnastics women’s team final live stream: Tokyo Olympics channels, start time and how to watch online

Will we see Team USA win gold in the Tokyo Olympics Gymnastics women’s team final live stream? The task is a lot harder now, after Simone Biles pulled out of the final having slipped in her first event, the vault. Biles returned to the arena with her foot heavily strapped, but will play no further part and has been replaced by Jordan Chiles.

Team USA has long been the favorite to stand atop the podium, but received a major shock during qualifying when they placed second after the Russian Olympic Committee.

They finished more than a point behind the ROC after uncharacteristic deductions from Biles and a fall off the balance beam by Chiles. Still, strong performances by Sunisa Lee and Grace McCallum — as well as the high difficulty of Biles’ routines — propelled Team USA into the Tokyo Olympics Gymnastics women’s team final.

Biles’ absence will only make things harder still as Team USA hits the floor, vault, uneven bars and balance beam in a bid for glory and gold.

(Jade Carey and MyKayla Skinner, the other members of the team, are only competing as individuals. Carey qualified for the vault and floor finals later this week.)

How to watch the Team USA gymnastics from anywhere in the world

The Olympics is a global event and can be viewed in almost every country on Earth. However, if you’re not in your home country and can’t watch the Tokyo Olympics gymnastics events with your usual services — or you want to watch in your native language — you’re not out of luck.

With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won’t hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. They’re totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use.

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We’ve tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you’ve got other VPN options as well.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we’ve said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you’re in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you’d select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.
