· Michael Phelps hits the water for his final individual race - the 100m butterfly, which he memorable won in Beijing over Serbia's Milorad Cavic by just .01 seconds - a margin undetectable to the naked eye. Colorado phenom Missy Franklin is a heavy favorite in the 200m backstroke and figures to threaten the world record. While another teenager, Bethesda, Maryland native Katie Ledecky, who at 15 is the youngest member of the U.S. Olympic swim team, swims in the 800m freestyle, in which Great Britain's reigning Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington is the favorite. The night also includes the men's 50m freestyle. Known as the "splash and dash," the fastest event in swimming is notoriously hard to predict, but Auburn-trained Brazilian Cesar Cielo has done his best to take the mystery out of the results, winning this event in Beijing as well as at the two world championships since. Chasing him will be 2008 relay gold medalist Cullen Jones and Anthony Ervin, the 2000 co-gold medalist in this event who remarkably returned to the top of the sport after a nearly decade-long absence.

· On the first night of track and field, the U.S. has three strong medal contenders in the men's shot put in Reese Hoffa, Christian Cantwell and Ryan Whiting- all of whom own world championship titles. Hoffa, who can solve a Rubik's Cube in under a minute, posted the world's best throw at the Olympic Trials.

· In women's volleyball, Team USA, which faces an up-and-coming Serbia squad tonight, is favored for its first ever Olympic gold medal. It would be the second in a row for the team's head coach Hugh McCutcheon, who coached the U.S. men to the Olympic title in 2008.
