Hello, and welcome to Day 3 at the 2012 Summer Olympics!
With only 12 medals on the line, Monday is one of the quieter days in London, but of course that is a relative term. The must-see event of the day will likely be the team final in men's gymnastics, where Team USA is not only expected to medal, but could come away with the country's first gold in the competition since 1984 in Los Angeles.
Elsewhere, Ryan Lochte goes for gold in the pool, Team USA women's basketball take the court and everyone's favorite beach volleyball duo is back in action.
Here's a complete TV schedule for Monday, and as always, NBC Live Extra is your online streaming buddy.
