Fort Lauderdale’s Sanya Richards-Ross will aim to medal once again in the women’s 4 x 400 meter relay final. The event will be streamed live at 3:25 p.m. ET on NBCOlympics.com.

Richards-Ross failed to medal in the 200 meter final but took the gold in the women’s 400 meter.

Foluke Akinradewo, also of Plantation, and the Women’s USA Volleyball team will play Brazil at 1:30 p.m. ET in the finals.

The Americans are top-ranked. They took over the top spot in the world rankings at the end of 2011, ending Brazil's four-year run. The women qualified for the Olympics in November with a silver-medal finish in the FIVB World Cup.

The team is favored to win their first Olympic gold.
