Event Finals: 22
— Track and Field: Men's 200-meter Sprint
Training partners and fellow Jamaicans Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake are the clear favorites in what should be both a fantastic race and the final installment of this summer's best track rivalry.
— Soccer: Women's Gold-Medal Match
Team USA has played scores of fantastic matches in this competition, and usually comes out on top. An American squad led by Hope Solo, Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan will have extra motivation to keep it that way after its devastating World Cup loss to Japan in 2011.
— Track and Field: Men's 800 meters
Kenyan David Rudisha has ruled this distance over the past three seasons and could break his own world record in London. Few have dominated any discipline quite like Rudisha, and we could see an all-time great reach his athletic peak during an Olympic Games. Special stuff.
— Track and Field: Conclusion of Men's Decathlon
Rising star Ashton Eaton set a new world record at U.S. Trials and looks to hold off countryman Trey Hardee for a spot atop the podium.
— Boxing: Women's Flyweight and Lightweight Finals
In the flyweight division, American Marlen Esparza has a great chance to win Team USA's first gold medal at the inaugural women's Olympic boxing tournament.
Her teammate, Queen Underwood, should make noise in the lightweight division, but will have to deal with legendary Irish fighter and women's boxing pioneer Katie Taylor.
— Beach Volleyball: Men's Gold-Medal Match
American tandem Sean Rosenthal and Jake Gibb have been red-hot of late, and could challenge the top Brazilian duo for Olympic gold.
