Your guide to beating NBC's delayed TV broadcast.

Swimming is behind us. Michael Phelps is done. But one of the Olympics' best events is right around the corner on Sunday when Usain Bolt, Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin and Yohan Blake expect to compete for the title of world's fastest man in the 100-meter final (4:50 p.m. ET). If you're hard-core fan, semifinals take place at 2:45 p.m. ET.

The All England Club will see another juicy final when Roger Federer and Brit favorite Andy Murray take Centre Court for the gold-medal match (9 a.m. ET) in a Wimbledon finals rematch. Will the home-court advantage give Murray a chance to finally break through in a final against one of the world's top-ranked players? Earlier, Serena Williams will have another shot at gold paired with sister Venus in the women's doubles final at 7 a.m. ET.

After a break, gymnasts are back in action for individual event medals. Men compete in floor exercise (9 a.m. ET) and pommel horse (10:41 a.m. ET), while U.S. high-flier McKayla Maroney takes the air in the women's vault finals at 9:50 a.m. ET.

There's plenty of track and field medal action on Sunday as attention shifts away from the pool. The women's marathon starts early (6 a.m. ET), the women's triple jump final starts at 2:35 p.m. ET, the men's hammer throw crowns a champion at 3:50 p.m. ET, and the women's 400-meter final starts at 4:10 p.m. ET. Then there's the most bizarre event in track, the men's 3,000-meter steeplechase (4:25 p.m. ET), where people act like horses for Olympic gold. And while not a medal event, double-amputee Oscar Pistorius is a must-watch in the 400-meter semifinal at 3:40 p.m. ET.

The U.S. women continue their quest for gold in basketball in preliminary play against China at 11: 45 a.m. ET.

The rest of Sunday's medal action takes place in badminton at 8 a.m. ET (men's singles) and 9:15 a.m. ET (men's doubles), diving, where Americans Christina Loukas and Cassidy Krug compete in the 3-meter springboard final (2 p.m. ET), and fencing, where after a full day of action, a men's foil team will be crowned champion at 2:15 p.m. ET.
