TOKYO, Japan (NBC) – Here’s a look at the major Olympic highlights from Friday’s opening ceremony.


After stunningly losing 3-0 to Sweden in their first match in Japan, the U.S. Women’s National Team rebounded with a six-goal performance against New Zealand.


Michael Andrew took care of business in his long-awaited Olympics debut, winning his heat and advancing to the next round in the 100m breaststroke with a time of 58.62.

American Emma Weyant qualified as the top seed to the women’s 400m IM final by nearly two seconds. In her heat, she blew past a combined eight Olympic medals in swimming icons Katinka Hosszu and Mireia Belmonte.
