· Track and field's relays kick off with the men's 4x400m race and the women's 4x100m. Team USA has won nearly every 4x400m competition since the event was added to the Olympic program in 1908, and is favored again. Meanwhile, South Africa, with double-amputee Oscar Pistorius, who is known as the "Blade Runner" for the carbon-fiber prostheses he wears, should also contend for a medal. In the women's 4x100m, Team USA, led by Carmelita Jeter and Allyson Felix, is expected to face a fierce challenge from Jamaica. And a duo of milers, champion Morgan Uceny and Shannon Rowbury, look for the first ever American medal in the women's 1500m.

· The men's platform contest is sure to be one of the most anticipated events of the Games, as 2009 world champion Tom Daley, a teen idol in Great Britain, takes the stage in his signature event - which was the only diving event China failed to win in Beijing. China's Qiu Bo, the reigning world champion, is out to change that, while Daley, top American David Boudia of Indiana and Australia's reigning Olympic champion Matthew Mitcham are among the deep field of contenders in this event.

· In the men's and women's finals of BMX, the top riders will decide their Olympic fates in a 40-second scramble to the finish. In the women's race, Great Britain's triple world champion Shanaze Reade could be one of the Games' biggest redemption stories after crashing out of the medals in Beijing in an aggressive push to go from second to first on the final turn. American Alise Post, a former gymnast from St. Cloud Minnesota is among the women trying to thwart Reade. In the men's race, the top American is 19-year-old Las Vegas native Connor Fields, who will try to hold off a cadre of Southern California-based international stars.

· The final night of track and field offers one last look at Jamaica's electrifying sprint king Usain Bolt.

The U.S., led by American record holder Tyson Gay and 2004 Olympic 100m champion Justin Gatlin, will try to get back on track after being disqualified in Beijing and the two world championships since. The Americans are heavy favorites in the women's 4x400m relay and have contenders in the men's 5000m with American record holder Bernard Lagat and Oregon legend Galen Rupp - although in the latter race, the home crowd will be pulling for Somalian-born Londoner Mo Farah, who trains with Rupp in Oregon and could win Great Britain's first medal in the event in 40 years. In the women's 800m, South Africa's Caster Semenya, who won the 2009 world title at age 18, will attempt to win her first gold medal over a deep field that includes former Cal star Alysia Montano. And in the high jump, mother of two - Chaunte Lowe - is among the favorites for gold.

· The men's platform contest is sure to be one of the most anticipated events of the Games, as 2009 world champion Tom Daley, a teen idol in Great Britain, takes the stage in his signature event - which was the only diving event China failed to win in Beijing. China's Qiu Bo, the reigning world champion, is out to change that, while Daley, top American David Boudia of Indiana and Australia's reigning Olympic champion Matthew Mitcham are among the contenders in this star-studded event.

· In women's volleyball, Team USA is favored to win 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.
