· The women’s gymnastics competition begins with teams looking to position themselves for medal contention. With a tough international field, there’s little margin for error.

· Key qualifying competition in swimming includes the men’s 4x100 freestyle relay, which the United States won in dramatic fashion in 2008 with Jason Lezak’s heroic anchor leg to keep Michael Phelps’ quest for eight golds alive. Lezak and Phelps are again on the U.S. squad for this event. Plus, key qualifying swims from gold medal hopefuls Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin and Rebecca Soni.

· LIVE (ET/CT) coverage of cycling’s women’s road race, as the world’s best female cyclists race through the heart of London. American Evelyn Stevens, who only bought her first bike in 2008 and gave up a career on Wall Street, could contend for a medal.

  • The first look at the reigning world champion U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team, led by reigning world all-around champion Jordyn Wieber, the 17-year-old from DeWitt, Michigan, and fast-rising 16-year-old wonder Gabby Douglas. They begin their pursuit of the team gold medal tonight – trying to become the first U.S. women to win team gymnastics gold since the “Magnificent Seven” won in Atlanta in 1996.

· Four years after Jason Lezak’s extraordinary anchor leg kept Michael Phelps on track for eight golds in Beijing, Phelps again swims for Team USA in the 4x100m freestyle relay in what figures to be another fierce contest with France and reigning world champion Australia. This should also be the night Phelps wins his 18th career medal to tie Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina for the most all time. Also in the pool, former Cal star Dana Vollmer is favored for gold in her signature event, the 100m butterfly. Allison Schmitt, who took the year off from the University Georgia to train alongside Phelps under coach Bob Bowman, will contend in the 400m freestyle with home favorite and reigning Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington of Great Britain. Brendan Hansen and cancer survivor Eric Shanteau will try to knock off the greatest breaststroker in history, Japan’s Kosuke Kitajima, in the 100m breaststroke.

· In the first diving final, Kelci Bryant, who finished a heartbreaking fourth in Beijing, teams with new partner Abby Johnston, a pre-med student at Duke, in the women’s synchronized springboard competition. The U.S. hasn’t won a diving medal since the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and Bryant and Johnston, who have finished in the top four in every competition this season, will be looking to reverse the trend in the team’s first chance.
