ICHINOMIYA, Chiba Pref. – Surfing is the only event at the Summer Olympics without a precise, predetermined schedule. It might happen today, but maybe not.
Consider another sport, like swimming, where the women’s 200-meter breaststroke final is scheduled for 10:41 a.m. on July 30. Or gymnastics, where the men’s pommel horse final will start at 6:44 p.m. on Aug. 1.
