The 2012 London Olympics will span 19 days, 36 athletic disciplines, and 302 events. How you handle that deluge of sport is a matter of personal preference. But unless you plan to forgo sleep for the better part of a month, we suggest you pace yourself. To help you do just that, we've ranked the top 10 days of Olympic competition based on scheduled events and anticipated showdowns.

Happy watching!

(Note: Unless otherwise stated, all "highlight" events are event finals.)
