Here are some things to watch (all times local):TRACK AND FIELDUsain Bolt should be lining up for gold medal No. 8 at 10:30 p.m. in the 200 meters and the biggest drama may not be whether he wins, but whether he cracks the once-thought-untouchable 19-second barrier. He already owns both the world record at 19.19, and Olympic record at 19.30.Among those who will challenge him include Canadian Andre De Grasse, who was on Bolts shoulder for much of the semifinal Wednesday night, and LaShawn Merritt of the U.S. De Grasse won bronze to Bolts gold in the 100.American Justin Gatlin -- who won silver in the 100 and was booed at that event -- failed to qualify in semis.Mens decathalon medals will be awarded after the 1500m finals, which start at 9:56 p.m. The athletes day starts with 110m hurdles (9:30 a.m.), discus (10:25 a.m.), pole vault (1:25 p.m.), javelin (6:45 p.m.) American Ashton Eaton is leading in points after the first day of events.

Jamaicas Annsert Whyte has the second best time of the year.At 9:31 p.m., South Africas Caster Semenya runs in the 800 semis at 9:31 p.m. Semenya has been under unwanted scrutiny ever since word leaked in 2009, just before she won the 800-meter world title as a 19-year-old, that track officials mandated that she undergo sex testing.The shot put finals, starting at 10:30 p.m., are Joe Kovacs to lose.

Noam Dar may be the first Israeli-born wrestler to perform in the WWE, but he has found other ways to stand out among the WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitors that go well beyond his lineage and his heritage.Dar, 23, moved with his family from Tel Aviv to Ayr, Scotland at age five -- hence his accent, and his representing Scotland in the tournament. Hes a veteran of the UK independent wrestling scene despite his young age, traveling those roads along with Zack Sabre Jr. and their fellow British Cruiserweight Classic competitor, Jack Gallagher.As Sabre joked to ESPN, Noams still so young -- it depresses me how young and beautiful he is, and talented, and handsome.?The comment elicited a laugh from Dar when ESPN repeated it to him in a later interview.I paid him money to say that! said Dar. Hes such a great person to be around. Hes also talented, wonderful and handsome and whatever he said about me, Ill reciprocate that.There is clearly a deep friendship between the trio, and they didnt reach the shores of the United States for the Cruiserweight Classic by sheer luck, or a favor. British wrestling legend Robbie Brookside, now a trainer at the WWE Performance Center, reserved special praise for this group of competitors.The presence of these three UK natives, and their success to this point in the tournament, is part of a growing British presence within the WWE.Dar, Sabre Jr and Gallagher have been made to feel incredibly comfortable in the presence of NXT trainers Brookside and William Regal -- another of British wrestlings most famous exports -- at Full Sail University and the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.?It almost feels like we have a home-field advantage, in a sense, Dar told ESPN. Theyre two guys that me, Zack and Jack look up to massively. They also came from the same scene we came from. They know whats required to make the transition from the British wrestling scene into the international market.Despite the experience all three men had long before they entered the Cruiserweight Classic, a chance to step through the ropes of the Performance Center ring and train under the watchful eyes of two British wrestling legends has been an invaluable experience.ddddddddddddWe feel like weve got a wee bit of an upper hand [in the Cruiserweight Classic], continued Dar. The British support and coaching staff has been fantastic.Sabre agrees wholeheartedly, as the advice he has received from Regal and Brookside has made his trip to the States 100 percent worth it.To have that validation, support and advice, their outlook ... Who better to inspire you? Sabre told ESPN. Robbie had such an incredible, long career. Regal has taken over America. Hes such an incredible wrestler but he was able to create such a great character for himself, he transcended both approaches to pro wrestling. Hes a big idol of mine.The WWE Cruiserweight Classic represents a seismic shift in the way the WWE presents content. The vast majority of talent brought in for this event is not under a WWE contract, and wrestlers have been brought in from all over the world in an effort to fully represent as many different styles as possible in the ring.Its served as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all involved -- especially Dar, Sabre and Gallagher.Now is the time for international presence to be felt in WWE, said Dar. The UK scene would be one of the first ports of call to show off. The UK scene back here wrestlingwise is fantastic. Hopefully me, Zack and Jack can be a good advertisement for it, and represent the UK in WWE.Its the first Cruiserweight Classic, Sabre added. There are three Brits in there, and I feel were all showcasing British wrestling in a positive light -- modern British wrestling, but were all indebted to our history. I feel very proud to be part of that team.
