Kynard will compete at 7 p.m. London time, 2 p.m. ET, in the Olympic Men's High Jump Finals. You can watch the event streaming live on or replayed during prime time on WNWO.

In the qualifiers, Kynard cleared all three of his first height attempts. He missed the first attempt at 2.29 meters (7 feet 4 inches), but cleared it on his second try.
