Monday marks the 11th day of the 2012 Olympics in London.

U.S. teenage gymnast Gabby Douglas, who has emerged as a star of the Games, will compete for a third gold medal when she faces off again against Russia's Viktoria Komova in the uneven bars.

The U.S. basketball team, which barely won its game against Lithuania last week, plays Argentina, a tough group that lost to the U.S. last month by a slim 86 to 80 in an exhibition game.

In a stunning turn of events Sunday, U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney, who was widely expected to win the gold in the vault finals, instead took home the silver, losing to Romania's Sandra Izbasa.
