1. A THIRD GOLD? Gabby Douglas is back in action, going for her third gold in the individual uneven bars.

3. BASKETBALL: The United States plays Argentina in the final action of men's pool play.

4. HURDLES: Defending Olympic champion Dawn Harper, American teammate Lolo Jones and world champion Sally Pearson cruised into the semifinals of the women's 100-meter hurdles.
