Here’s where to watch ALL of the events in the 2012 Summer Olympics from London

It’s hard to believe, but the Summer Olympics opening ceremony will be on Friday (July 27). After the ceremony ends, use this guide from the L.A. Times to find the best events.

Who will win the most medals? It’s always a tough competition, but we do expect to see Great Britain win more medals than the country did at the last Olympics. (See why hosting countries win more medals.)

The U.S. Women’s Soccer team doesn’t need to wait for Friday: the squad plays its first match of the Olympics on Wednesday (July 25) against France in search of its fourth gold medal. It starts at noon EDT and will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Network.  More here.

It’s also a safe bet that Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps will tear up the pool, just like the American basketball team should be dominant on the hardcourt (LeBron James wants to add a gold medal to his NBA title).

But here is one thing we KNOW: You will be able to watch more of the Summer Olympics live this time around than ever before. That’s because you’ll be able to watch it on eight TV channels (TV listings) as well as streaming online (Streaming schedule). NBC promises you can, if you like, watch every event live. In case you are wondering, that is 5,000 hours of coverage.

Here’s a partial list of the most popular events, to help you plan your viewing (Complete schedule):

  • Friday (July 27): Opening Ceremonies
  • Saturday: Missy Franklin expected to participate in her first swim finals.
  • Monday (July 30): Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte do battle
