Olympics 2012: Ryan Lochte Competes For Gold Medal In 200m Freestyle

Ryan Lochte will compete for a gold medal in the 200-meter freestyle on Monday, looking to redeem himself from his performance on Sunday at the end of the men's 4x100 relay. Lochte is the clear favorite to win this race, which begins at the Aquatics Center at 2:30 p.m ET.

His challengers include Sun Yang of China, won a gold medal in the 400m free in this Olympic and Yannick Agnel of France, who smoked Lochte by a full second in the anchor leg of the 4x100 relay on Sunday.

The Americans could possibly sweep the swimming medals on Monday, with Missy Franklin competing in the women's 100m backstroke, Matt Grevers the favorite in the men's 100m backstroke, and Rebecca Soni and Breeja Larson in the women's 100m breaststroke.

Check out the schedule for those events right here:

  • 2:43 p.m. - Men's 200m Freestyle
  • 2:51 p.m. - Women's 100m Backstroke
  • 2:58 p.m. - Men's 100m Backstroke
  • 3:15 p.m. - Women's 100m Breaststroke

It's not easy to watch these events live, with NBC's tape delay, but you can check out their live online streaming here.
