Olympics Sunday: Here's what we're watching
All eyes will be on the main track Sunday — for a shade over nine seconds, anyway — as the men’s 100-metre final, the most anticipated event of the Games, goes off (4:50 p.m.) Usain Bolt’s Olympic title from Beijing is under threat here as fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake seems poised to claim his teammate’s mantle. Blake beat Bolt at both the 100 and 200 metres in Jamaica’s Olympic trials in June. Americans Justin Gatlin and Tyson Gay could give the island pair a run.
Yukon-born cyclist Zach Bell faded on day one and is a longshot for the medals in cycling’s six-event omnium (5 a.m. and 12 p.m.).
In women’s basketball, Canada has already locked up a berth in the quarter-finals and will wrap up the round-robin portion against Australia (9:30 a.m.).
Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que., and Emilie Heymans of St-Lambert, Que., both advanced to Sunday's women's three-metre springboard diving final (2 p.m.).
The gymnastics individual finals continue. Watch for 37-year-old Oksana Chusovitina, born in Uzbekistan and competing for Germany, who could win a medal in the vault two decades after making her Olympic debut at the 1992 Barcelona Games (9.50 a.m.). Ellie Black of Halifax and Brittany Rogers of Coquitlam, B.C., are also in the vault final.
