NBC will air the finals in prime time and will also stream every event live at NBCOlympics.com. It should come as no surprise that Michael Phelps, once again, is expected to be the center of attention. In 2008, he won an amazing eight gold medals; but this year, he's only going for seven. The U.S. women's team has a lot of fresh faces heading to London, including 17-year-old phenom Missy Franklin, and Allison Schmitt, a 22-year-old freestyler who has been training with Phelps in Baltimore. Diving begins on July 29 and runs through Aug. 11. Chinese athletes are expected to dominate, but Top American hopefuls include Brittany Viola and David Boudia (Buh-die-uh).
