Sunday, July 29, 2012 | 9:26 a.m. CDT; updated 3:38 p.m. CDT, Sunday, July 29, 2012

LONDON — Here's what to watch for at the London Olympics on Sunday:

  1. SWIMMING: The United States, Australia and France go for gold in the final of the 4x100m freestyle relay, a day after Michael Phelps was handily defeated by teammate Ryan Lochte.
  2. BASKETBALL: The U.S. men's team plays France (and NBA star Tony Parker).
  3. FANS: Londoners — and visitors — are craving tickets for the Olympics yet many seats have been empty so far. Will organizers be able to ensure a full house even if it means giving them away?
  4. A BRITISH ROYAL: Zara Phillips took part in the eventing dressage competition. She's the daughter of Princess Anne and rode a horse called High Kingdom.
  5. THE HOSTS: Can Britain get on the podium? The country had high hopes of a medal on Saturday but fell short. Will their luck change?
