The 2012 Olympics are more than half over and the medal games are in full swing. Do not miss a minute of the action by staying informed on the best events of each day.

Another chance for Gabby Douglas to earn a gold medal highlights Day 10 of the Games. Will she be able to lift her team’s spirits after McKayla Maroney’s devastating second-place finish in the vault on Sunday?

Can Angelo Taylor, the 2000 and 2008 men’s 400-meter hurdles gold medalist, defeat the odds and become a three-time gold medalist in the hurdles?

Don’t miss the following events on Day 10 of the 2012 London Games!



Women’s Uneven Bars Final

9:50 a.m. ET

TV: NBC, 8 p.m. - 12 a.m. ET (Tape Delay)

Live Stream: NBCOlympics.com 

Beth Tweddle is widely regarded as the best bars gymnast in the world. While she didn’t make the all-around finals, she is dominant in this event and will have a chance to prove it in front of her home country audience.

Expect Russian standout gymnast Viktoria Komova to come out with a fury. After falling to the U.S. in the team competition and then to Gabby Douglas in the all-around, she has a lot to prove in the uneven bars.

Can she overcome the “Flying Squirrel” and Weddle to earn a gold medal before it’s too late?

Must Watch Athletes:

Beth Tweddle, Great Brittain

Viktoria Komova, Russia

Gabby Douglas, United States



Men's Vault Final

10:41 a.m. ET

TV: NBC, 8 p.m. - 12 a.m. ET (Tape Delay)

Live Stream: NBCOlympics.com 

The men’s vault finals will not have an American as the predicted winner. That’s why, if the naturally gifted American Sam Mikulak can pull off a medal, it will be all the more exciting instead of disappointing if he fails to reach perfection.

He’ll have a tough road ahead of him as Denis Ablyazin of Russia and Kristian Thomas of Great Britain will be doing everything they can in their power to bring home the gold.

Must Watch Athletes:

Denis Ablyazin, Russia

Kristian Thomas, Great Britain

Samuel Mikulak, United States



Men's 400-Meter Hurdles Final

3:45 p.m. ET

TV: NBC, 8 p.m. - 12 a.m. ET (Tape Delay)

Live Stream: NBCOlympics.com

The 400-meter hurdles final will feature three very capable hurdlers from the United States.

The 2000 and 2008 400-meter hurdles gold medalist, Angelo Taylor, will be leading the charge for the Americans. The veteran is not a favorite but cannot be counted out.

The biggest challenge for American dominance of the event will be Javier Culson of Puerto Rico, who has posted four of the five fastest times this season. Then there is David Greene, who will be running in front of his home-country crowd in London. Greene won the 2011 world championship.

Must Watch Athletes:

Javier Culson, Puerto Rico

David Greene, Great Britain

Angelo Taylor, United States
