Can you believe it hasn't even been a week since the Olympics started?

As Team USA relishes on stealing the No. 1 spot for medal counts yesterday (we currently have 37, while China comes in second with 34), viewers can anticipate a number of new events during today's games—like the debut of Allyson Felix and our track and field team!

As expected, there will be a number of track and field heats today, including the women's 100- and 400-meter races and men's 400-meter hurdles and long jump, but there will also be a medal ceremony for the women's 10,000-meter and men's shot put.

You can also catch Michael Phelps competing in the 100-meter butterfly finals, a race Phelps has won the last two Olympics. The U.S. women's soccer team will face New Zealand in a quarterfinal match. Serena Williams will hit the court against Belarus' Victoria Azarenka in women's singles and then will later join sister Venus Williams to try to move on to the final of the women's doubles draw as they go against Russians Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova.

With so much going on, what are you most excited to see? Let us know in the comments!

Sometimes, the Olympians get a little emotional.
