With track and field competition beginning this weekend, the main buzz will undoubtedly be behind the men's 100-meter final on Sunday, where superstar Usain Bolt will look to defend his 2008 Olympic title against upstart teammate Yohan Blake. But before then, eight gold medals will have already been won.

Headlining the first two days of track and field competition will be Galen Rupp in the 10,000 meters (looking to end USA's seemingly endless drought in the event), Carmelita Jeter and her expected dominance in the 100-meter and a handful of other Americans looking to play spoiler.

Ahead are the previews for the eight track and field medal events taking place this Friday and Saturday.
