Sunday's Sochi action begins at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park where American Bode Miller will go for his 6th Olympic medal, while the ladies of the U.S. snowboarding team attempt to match teammate Sage Kotsenburg's slopestyle gold

U.S. figure skaters will get their last attempts to prove themselves in the team contest before the first medal ceremony of the event later Sunday. 

Medals also go out in four other events, including men's luge and ski jumping. Scroll down for a complete listing of events, and information on how to watch on TV and online.

1:30 a.m.: Snowboarders Ty Walker and Jessika Jenson have two more chances to make it into the final round of competition. Walker, one of the team's rising stars, has been resting injuries since Monday.

4:15 a.m.: Back in the mountains above Sochi, women's snowboarders will compete in the slopestyle finals.

Watch live online or at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

5:00 a.m.: Men's cross-country skiers compete in their first medal event — the 15k classic. Watch it live at NBCOlympics.com or on NBC Sports, which will also broadcast the first women's speed skating event of the Games — the 3000m sprint which the Czech, Dutch and Germans are likely to dominate. To watch that online, click here at 6:30 a.m. ET.

8:00 a.m.: Russia takes on Germany in the fourth preliminary game in women's hockey. Watch live online or on MSNBC.

9:30 a.m. NBC Sports and NBCOlympics.com will have live coverage of the men's luge finals where Italian Armin Zoggeler will go for his record 6th consecutive Olympic gold. He'll face challenges from Germany's Felix Lah and Albert Demtschenko, who will have the home track advantage. Meanwhile, the women go for the gold in the 7.5km biathlon sprint. 

10 a.m.: The first figure skating Olympic medal of the Sochi Games is awarded Sunday morning. America improved its standings after Saturday's event, and will introduce, for the first time, U.S. darling Gracie Gold and Jason Brown, a newcomer who became a sudden YouTube sensation after his firecracker performance at the U.S. Championships. Russia remains far ahead and appears destined for a gold.

Brown is up first at 10, followed by Gold at 11:05 and ice dance pair Meryl Davis and Charlie White at 12:10 p.m. Watch it live on NBC Sports and NBCOlympics.com. Or wait until 7 p.m. and catch it on NBC.
