2012 Summer Olympics: Preview of Tuesday's Action

The USA men's basketball team will play its second game of the Olympics at 10:15 p.m. London Time -- 5:15 Eastern -- against Tunisia. But there is plenty of action to tide viewers over until then.

At present, nine separate events are taking place -- badminton, sailing, canoe slalom, men's fly weight boxing, women's field hockey, skeet shooting and more.

Here is a full schedule for all of Tuesday's events.

Germany claimed Tuesday's first gold medal -- and Germany's first gold medal of these Olympics -- at the equestrian jumping final. Germany was tops in both medals (five) and golds (three) in equestrian events at the 2008 Olympics

All told there are 15 medal events Tuesday.

China and the United States are currently tied atop the medal standings with 17 apiece. China, however, has nine gold medals to the United States' five. France is third in overall medals with seven.
