There will also be live streaming of all these events at www.NBCOlympics.com.  Real time expert commentary will be provided by USA Canoe/Kayaks Olympic High Performance Director, Chris Hipgrave. You can follow the events live on your computer -- or you can watch them later in the day after they are archived!

While it's currently unclear if all heats will be streamed live, they will be made part of the archived material on www.NBCOlympics.com, so you can still see it there but after some delay.

The streaming works on all PCs and Macs that are less than two years old, but a Microsoft plug-in is required, so you might want to do a test run before the action starts.
