Rio Olympics: How to watch Tuesday

​News wire services
The women took to the waters Monday for the rough and tumble sport of marathon swimming. The men hit the waters Tuesday.

A day after Brazil won its first swimming medal of the Games — a bronze in the women’s open water event — the men take to the sewage-filled waters off Copacabana Beach for their 10K race.

This is the second Olympics holding competition in open ocean waters.

At the first Summer Games in 1896, before custom-built pools were the norm, swimming was held in the Bay of Zea.

The inaugural open water event in 2008 was staged at Beijing’s rowing and canoeing canal. Four years ago, the open water in London took place in the Serpentine Lake at Hyde Park.
