Olympic Track And Field: Dawn Harper Goes For Gold In 100 Meter Hurdles

As we head into Tuesday's action, the main highlight among Los Angeles athletes is former UCLA graduate Dawn Harper going for gold tonight in the women's 100 meter hurdles. The defending Olympic champion is trying to win the event once again, as she captured first in Beijing with a time of 12.54 seconds. Harper is one of the favorites, although she'll have qualifying heats in the afternoon session before she can be sure she'll race in the final in the night session.

There will be plenty of other action involving L.A. athletes, including the USA women's volleyball and water polo teams in action. USC's Jesse Williams is also in contention in the men's high jump. April Ross of USC will also team with Jennifer Kessy in the women's beach volleyball semifinal.

Here's the Olympic TV schedule for Tuesday's action, all times ET (although the NBC times are the same for every coast). All events will be shown on a variety of networks throughout the day and also be streamed live online at the NBCOlympics.com website.
