The event will take place in more than 300 cities across the country as part of the “Free the Nipple” movement. Participants aim to exercise their “legal rights, celebrate, and to raise awareness about the double standard that says men's nipples are normal and safe and women's are obscene and dangerous.” New Hampshire is a topfree state, meaning it's legal to go topless at any time. 

Last year, dozens of women took part at Hampton Beach, despite the rainy and cold weather.

On Sunday, the weather at the beach is expected to be mostly sunny with temperatures in the low 80s, according to Chief Meteorologist Kevin Lemanowicz.

Coach strips to underwear to protest Olympic wrestling match

It's common for emotions to run high during the final seconds of any Olympic event. Sometimes, outcomes are contested.

But one man undressed Sunday afternoon as he contested the final scoring of a wrestling match.

In the 65kg freestyle wrestling bronze medal match, Uzbekistan’s Ikhtiyor Navaruzov beat Mongolia’s Mandakhnaran Ganzorig 8-7 in a match that ended in controversy and two Mongolian coaches taking off their clothes at the Olympic venue.

In the final seconds of the match, Ganzorig led by one and began dancing to celebrate his imminent medal. That celebration didn't last long.

According to The Associated Press, Uzbekistan challenged the scoring. Officials awarded Navaruzov a penalty point, which also gave him the bronze medal because tie matches are decided by the wrestler who last scored a point. 

Then began the unlikely turn of events.

Two Mongolian coaches stormed the mat in protest and began angrily shedding their clothes, with one getting all the way down to his blue briefs while the crowd chanted "Mongolia! Mongolia!"

That led to match officials awarding yet another penalty point.

Police eventually escorted the coaches from the mat.

What makes an Olympic swimming pool 'fast'?

The oldest Olympic swimming records are from the 2008 games in Beijing. Setting new record times has become a bit of a trend since then.

Yes, these are some of the most capable swimmers on the planet. But experts think the pools themselves might have something to do with it, too.

"It's by far the fastest pool in the world. And when I say fast, I'm talking about deep water," NBC's Rowdy Gaines told NPR in 2008.

Since the Beijing games, all the Olympic pools have been 3 meters deep, the recommended Olympic depth set by swimming's world governing body.

By accident or by design, it's deep enough that the waves the swimmers generate don't rebound off the bottom, so the water at the surface stays calmer.

Lane lines, unoccupied buffer lanes on either side and special gutters along the edges of the pool all help reduce the effect waves and turbulence have on the swimmers.

And the benefit would seem to be in the numbers. During the Rio Olympics, swimmers set more than 10 new world or Olympic records.

Simone Biles beats out Gabby Douglas, advances to represent Team USA

The U.S. women’s gymnastic team dominated the qualifying round on day 2 of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

On Sunday night, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez made their country proud, but it was Biles who truly outshone the competition. She posted top scores in three of the four rotations -- floor exercise, vault and balance beam. Biles scored 62.366 to win by more than 1.7 points.

This is somewhat sad news for Douglas, whose hope to become the first American woman to win back-to-back golds in the all-around has ended as Biles’ star continues to shine brighter and brighter.

There is a rule in the Olympics that stipulates each country can only send two athletes through to the final round of a sport, even if all of its athletes receive the top scores.

At this year’s games, those two athletes in the women’s all-around gymnastics category representing the United States will be Biles and Raisman, who edged out Douglas by just .476.

But Douglas is taking the news in stride.

"I feel like the two-per-country rule is fine," the London 2012 Olympic gold medalist said. "I'm feeling pretty confident, and I'm rejoicing now. It's been an amazing experience so far. I would have loved to go back and defend my title, but you know what? It's been an amazing ride. I can't complain."

Biles’ vault set her apart from the competition Sunday night, earning her an outstanding score of 16.050.
