The 2012 London Olympics have been incredibly exciting so far, giving up plenty of moments to talk about at the water cooler. On Friday, there's no reason to believe anything will change with a host of events on the schedule.
One sport that will be extremely busy is Rowing. New York has a bevy of local athletes on the team including Charlie Cole, Henrik Rummel, Ken Jurkowski, Meghan Musnicki and Steve Kasprzyk.
Up to this point the American swimmers have been cleaning up on the medal stand. Friday will provide four chances to bring home some more hardware for the team headlined by Missy Franklin, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.
The four finals are below:
2:30 p.m. ET: Women's 200 Backstroke
2:38 p.m. ET: Men's 100 Butterfly
2:45 p.m. ET: Women's 800 Freestyle
3:09 p.m. ET: Men's 50 Freestyle
The American Women's soccer team has it's first match outside of group play on Friday, when they take on a frisky New Zealand team at 9:30 a.m. ET. The U.S. is a pronounced favorite, but will have to stay focused to avoid the upset.
USA Women's basketball also has a game on the slate. The red, white and blue will be settling in against the Czech Republic at 5:30 p.m. ET.
All in all, 27 medals will be earned by the end of the day.
