The 100m finals will be the most exciting 10 or so seconds of track and field action on Sunday, but there's tons more, from the Olympics longest race to its shortest.

Today, we find out who gets to hold the title of the world's fastest man, as the men's 100m final will be held in London. Will it be Usain Bolt, following up on his spectacular Beijing Olympics, or Yohan Blake, who handled him in the Jamaican Olympic trials? Or, perhaps, someone else, such as the American Tyson Gay or perhaps Bolt and Blake's fellow Jamaican, Asafa Powell.

That's not all: Sunday's track and field schedule features everything from the 100-meter race to the 26.2-mile marathon, with a little hammer-throwing in between. All events will be available for streaming live from the NBCOlympics official website, and some events will be tape-delayed to primetime on NBC.
