Olympic Games 2012, Saturday Preview: Medal Events In Track And Field, Wrestling, Women's Basketball Highlight Day

The 2012 Olympics are just two days from ending, and Saturday is packed with both indoor and outdoor medal events. The Americans will have a chance to solidify their overall gold medal lead in two major events, as both the women's basketball team (vs. France) and women's volleyball team (vs. Brazil) will have chances to take home golds.

Globally, all eyes will be on the men's 4x100 meter relay final, where the United States is expected to medal but would have to stage a shocking upset to unseat Team Jamaica at the top of the podium. There are also various medal events in wrestling (60kg, 84kg, 120 kg) as well as the men's 10m platform final in diving.
