LONDON— Here are five things to look for at the London Olympics on Monday:

  1. A THIRD GOLD? Gabby Douglas is back in action, going for her third gold in the individual uneven bars.
  2. 400M FINAL: It's the track final, but with a very different feel. Due to injury and non-qualification, there will be no American gold medalist for the first time since 1980.
  3. BASKETBALL: The United States plays Argentina in the final action of men's preliminary play.
  4. HURDLES: Defending Olympic champion Dawn Harper, American teammate Lolo Jones and world champion Sally Pearson cruised into the semifinals of the women's 100-meter hurdles.
  5. BOTTLE THROWER: The man accused of throwing a bottle onto the track just before the 100-meter final is to appear in court.
