The 2012 London Olympics has been jam packed with competitive play and Day 10 easily features some of the best contests yet.

Gold medalists will be attempting to repeat their earlier Olympic success, the best of the best teams will square off on the hardwood, and the track and field events only continue to heat up.

Make no mistake about it, there will be no shortage of intriguing events for fans to watch on Day 10 of these Olympics.

These are the three events fans must be sure to check out in this exciting day at the London Games.


Women's Gymnastics

Event: Uneven Bars Final at 9:50 a.m. ET

Players to Watch:

Gabby Douglas (USA)

Viktoria Komova (Russia)


It was just days ago that Komova and Douglas were duking it out in the women's individual all-around, and now they will take their talents to the uneven bars.

Douglas finished with the gold and Komova silver in the all-around, and this uneven bars final is set to be an especially competitive one between these two talents.

Komova entered the London Games fresh off of a second-place finish in the all-around final at the 2011 World championships.

Meanwhile, Douglas helped her Americans win a 2011 World title, and has two gold medals already at these Games.

Talk about two accomplished finalists!

Expect a thriller on the bars between these two. Make no mistake about it, their precision in this competition will be every bit worth watching.


Men's Track and Field

Event: 400-meter final at 4:30 p.m. ET

Runner to Watch For:

Dane Hyatt (Jamaica)


Track and Field is now in complete action at the London games, and there is no question this has become one of the top sports for fans to watch.

Usain Bolt's teammate Dane Hyatt is one of the favorites in Day 9's semifinal, and should be one of the top competitors in the 400-meter final on Day 10.

Expect some top-notch racing in the next few days, and a men's 400-meter final of epic proportions.



Men's Basketball

Games to Watch:

Spain vs. Brazil at 3:00 p.m. ET

USA vs. Argentina at 5:15 p.m. ET


Two of the best games to hit the hardwood will take place August 6.

Spain and Brazil are the first of the two more promising contests. Both teams feature a plethora of NBA talent and are easily two of the top-five teams in the World. The Gasol brothers and Leandrinho Barbosa are just a taste of the top-notch talents this matchup will feature.

The co-owners of second-place in Group B will undoubtedly be giving it their all in this one, as Russia currently holds a one-point advantage in the group.

Meanwhile, the Americans are set to have a down-to-the-wire thriller with Argentina. These two met just before the Olympic Games and Argentina fell just six points short. After a major scare from Lithuania, LeBron James and Team USA have to be fearing this experienced Argentina bunch.

Currently, the United States lead Argentina in the group standings with a one-point edge.
