2012 Summer Olympics: Schedule for August 8

The Games are winding down, and I know all of you are as sad as I am. But why cry when there’s plenty of fun left!

Some events have already completed, but here are the times for the rest of today’s events. All Times Central.

Team USA right now on the court against Italy in an elimination quarterfinals match in men’s volleyball and plays an elimination quarters match against Croatia later in men’s water polo. The premier event today is the all-USA women’s volleyball gold medal match, pitting Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh against April Ross and Jen Kessy for the gold medal (the loser takes a silver). Team USA men’s basketball also battles with Australia in an elimination quarterfinal match, and track and field competition is highlighted by the women’s  long jump finals, as well as the 400m hurdles and 200m finals, where Team USA threatens to sweep both.
