Monday Olympic Preview: What to Watch, TV Listings, and Medals Awarded

It’s sad to me that the 2012 Summer Olympics are more than half-way finished.

The swimming competition (aside from the 10-kilometer open-water race) is complete, as are the tennis tournaments.

On the other hand, track and field is just getting started, and we can look forward to a week full of medal-round play in most of the team sports.

Here’s a look at what’s on the schedule for today.

First, let’s look back on a few of the many highlights from the weekend:

  • Usain Bolt defended his gold medal in the men’s 100, breaking the Olympic record he set in 2008.
  • Team USA continued its dominance in the pool with wins in the men’s and women’s 400 medley relays.
  • The United States took three of the five gold medals in tennis: Serena Williams won the gold in women’s singles; Bob and Mike Bryan won gold in men’s doubles; and Serena and her sister Venus won women’s doubles. Meanwhile, Great Britain’s Andy Murray—who has made a career of losing to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal late in major tournaments—defeated Federer in straight sets to win a gold medal in his home country.
  • Guatemala won its first ever Olympic medal when Erick Barrondo took silver in the men’s 20 km race walk.
  • Great Britain had an incredible day on the track and on the field Saturday, winning gold in the heptathlon (Jessica Ennis), men’s long jump (Greg Rutherford), and men’s 10,000 (Mo Farah).
  • After 1.5 km of swimming, 40 km of cycling, and 10 km of running, the women’s triathlon ended in a dead heat between Switzerland’s Nicola Spirig and Sweeden’s Lisa Nordén. A photo finish determined that Spirig won by the narrowest of margins.

Today’s program includes:

  • The 400 meter hurdles final, featuring Americans Kerron Clement, Angelo Taylor, and Michael Tinsley.
  • American all around champion Gabby Douglas on the uneven bars and American Sam Mikulak competing in the men’s vault.
  • The United States women’s soccer team in medal round play against Canada (1:30 p.m. Central on NBC Sports Network).
  • The American men’s basketball team against Manu Ginóbili and Argentina in the final game of group play (4:15 p.m. on NBC Sports Network).
