TUESDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS

Live prime-time NBC coverage of track and field finals includes the highly competitive men’s high jump, where winning gold might require breaking a world record that has stood for more than two decades; a trio of American challengers to Ethiopia’s Genzebe Dibaba in the women’s 1,500 meters; and Oregon Ducks wide receiver Devon Allen among U.S. threats to Jamaican Omar McLeod in the men’s 110-meter hurdles. Apparatus finals in gymnastics include the men’s parallel bars, men’s high bar and women’s floor exercise; the latter could come down to U.S. teammates for gold — Simone Biles, the three-time reigning world all-around champion, and Aly Raisman, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist.
