Sunday's Olympic broadcast features women's hoops in day, gymnastics at night

You can stop watching the Olympics, now that Michael Phelps struck gold 8 times and Dara Torres managed silver three times. I say that in jest, but two of the biggest American storylines are history. There's still men's basketball to keep your eyes on. From the release, here's what is in store for tonight:
BEIJING – August 16, 2008 – NBC's primetime coverage of the Beijing Olympics Sunday begins at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT with men's gymnastics individual gold medal finals in floor and pommel horse and women's individual gold medal finals in floor and vault. For USA women's gymnastics it will be another Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin match-up as they compete for gold on floor, and could again take gold and silver for the USA. Alicia Sacramone has the opportunity to redeem herself at this Olympics as she competes in vault. On the men's side for the USA, Alexander Artimev will compete in the pommel horse and could take gold from heavy favorite Xiao Qin. In track & field, the women's 100m gold medal final will crown the "fastest woman in the world" and should feature the USA's Lauryn Williams who has earned a medal in the past three major championships (2004 Olympic Silver, 2005 World Championship gold, 2007 World Championship silver). Also in primetime, the women's springboard gold medal final and live look-ins of women's triathlon
