Men's 200 Meter Gold Medal Final: Start Time, TV Schedule And More

Wallace Spearmon will race in the final of the men's 200 meter sprint on Thursday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Unfortunately for the Chicago native Spearmon, so will Jamaica's Usain Bolt.

Bolt already took gold in the 100 meter sprint on Sunday and will be the heavy favorite in the 200. He's the world record with a time of 19:19 and also the reigning Olympic champion in the event after taking home gold in 2008 in Beijing.

Spearmon is the only American in the final heat and will race out of lane six. Bolt will race out of lane seven, with his fellow countryman Yohan Blake racing out of lane four.

Time: 1:10 p.m. CT

TV: NBC Sports Network
