London 2012 Olympics Daily Preview: Event Times, TV Schedule & More

Thursday will be an absolutely loaded day at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. There will be gold medal finals in women's platform diving men's beach volleyball, men's triple jump and decathlon, as well as semifinals in volleyball and women's basketball.

But of course the one event that everyone will be watching is the gold medal match in women's soccer between the United States and Japan. It will be a rematch of the 2011 women's World Cup final that Japan won in unbelievable fashion. You can bet that Team USA hasn't forgotten that one.
