London Olympics Daily Preview: TV Schedule, Event Time & More

The United States women's soccer team played an instant classic on Monday, playing 123 minutes of some of the most exciting football in recent memory against a tough Canadian team. On Thursday, the U.S. will play in the gold medal match against old foes Japan, who defeated them in the final match of the 2011 women's World Cup.

That match will highlight a full day of action at the 2012 Olympic Games in London on Thursday. Other gold medal finals will include women's platform diving, men's beach volleyball, men's triple jump and the decathlon.

Here is the complete schedule for Thursday's events. All times are ET, except for the coverage televised on NBC, which will air on tape delay at the same time in all time zones. You can of course stream every event live at NBCOlympics.com.
