Saturday is the last day of action at the Olympics before the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, and there will be two big American names in action.

Elana Meyers Taylor and Kaillie Humphries will go for gold medals in the two-woman bobsled, each in different sleds. Meyers Taylor won the monobob silver earlier in Beijing, and Humphries won the gold.

Other notable events include the men’s cross-country skiing 50km race — that sport’s equivalent of the marathon — and the men’s ice hockey gold medal game between Finland and the Russian Olympic Committee.
