RIO DE JANEIRO -- Day 10 of the Rio Games features medal action in track and field, boxing, cycling, marathon swimming, wrestling and more. Here are some things to watch (all times local):TRACK AND FIELDWorld champion Allyson Felix will be going for her fifth career Olympic gold medal when she runs in the womens 400-meter final. Felix won her heat in the semifinals on Sunday in a season-best 49.67 seconds, the fastest time in the field. She is running only in the 400 after missing a chance to defend her Olympic 200-meter title by failing to make the U.S. team. The final is scheduled for 10:45 p.m.Devon Allen, the Oregon football player who is competing in Rio, will make his Olympic debut when he runs in the opening heats of the 110-meter hurdles. Allen is the first collegian to win the 110-meter hurdles at the Olympic Trials since Marylands Renaldo Nehemiah in 1980. The Ducks football team plans to take a break from practice to watch Allen, a receiver on the team, run in his heat, which is scheduled to start at 9:04 p.m.There are also medals up for grabs in mens pole vault and mens 800 meters.BEACH VOLLEYBALLThe U.S. mens beach volleyball team of Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena play their quarterfinal match on Monday (4 p.m.) against the defending world champions from Brazil, Alison and Bruno. Its the toughest test yet for Dalhausser, the 2008 gold medalist, and his rookie partner.BOXINGA thoroughly entertaining Olympic heavyweight tournament concludes with the gold-medal bout between Russian world champion Evgeny Tishchenko and Kazakhstans fearsome Vassilliy Levit. The winner joins an elite lineage of Olympic champions at the glamour weight, including George Foreman, Ray Mercer and three-time Cuban champs Felix Savon and Teofilo Stevenson. Levit beat Savons nephew, Erislandy, to reach the final. The main event of a 19-fight card is at 7:15 p.m.GYMNASTICSSimone Biles will try to make it 4 for 4 when the Olympic all-around champion makes a bid for another gold medal during the balance beam finals.The 19-year-old already has three golds from the team final, the all-around and the vault, which she won on Sunday. Her three golds are the most by an American female gymnast during one Olympics. Biles is the world champion on beam and posted the highest score during qualifying when she put up a 15.633. Biles biggest challenge will likely come from teammate Laurie Hernandez, who edged Biles during the Olympic Trials last month and scored 15.366 during qualifying.The men will hand out individual medals in vault and still rings.MENS BASKETBALLComing off a thrilling double-overtime win against rival Brazil, Argentina wraps up pool play against Spain. The Argentinians are 3-1 and have their sights set on their third Olympic medal.Spain, the two-time defending silver medalists, led by center Pau Gasol, drubbed Lithuania by 50 in their previous game . The Spaniards will earn a spot in the quarterfinals with a win or if Brazil loses to Nigeria in Mondays first game in Group B. Spain and Argentina tip off at 7 p.m.WRESTLINGCuban heavyweight Mijian Lopez will wrestle for his third Olympic title Monday at the Rio Games. But Lopez will likely have to get through Turkish strongman Riza Kayaalp to win gold. Kayaalp stunned Lopez in the 2015 world championships, and a second win over the Cuban would signify a shift in dominance between these long-time rivals.MARATHON SWIMMINGWith concerns about the quality of the water plaguing the Rio Games, the womens 10-kilometer marathon will be held at 9 a.m. The women will be swimming a course just off of Copacabana Beach, competing in an event that started in Beijing in 2008. It takes most of the swimmers about two hours to complete the 6.2-mile course, and adding to the difficulty this year is the heavily polluted water of the Atlantic Ocean just off of the coast. American Haley Anderson won silver in London, narrowly missing out on the gold.TRACK CYCLINGMark Cavendish , the winner of 30 stages in the Tour de France, tries to capture the Olympic medal that has long eluded him when he returns to the Rio velodrome for the omnium. Reigning gold medalist Lasse Norman Hansen of Denmark leads the six-discipline event at the midway point, but the British star is within striking distance. It starts at 5:23 p.m.WATER POLOAfter starting their tournament play outdoors, the women move inside for quarterfinal action. The Americans play Brazil at 2:10 p.m. They have started defense of their Olympic title by going 3-0 in group play . Australia plays Hungary, Russia plays Spain and Italy faces China in the other games.WEIGHTLIFTINGThe mens 105-kilogram class opened up in June when the world record holder Ilya Ilyin of Kazakhstan was suspended for failing retests of his drug test samples from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. With Ilyin out of the picture, gold medal contenders include fellow Kazakh Alexander Zaichikov, who is the reigning world champion, Uzbekistans Ruslan Nurudinov and Chinas Yang Zhe.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- David Johnson is a dream for those who play fantasy football -- a big, fast, agile running back and an outstanding receiver who scores a lot of touchdowns.They expect big things from the 24-year-old second-year pro. So do the Arizona Cardinals. And those expectations are enormous.David has all the tools, Cardinals running backs coach Stump Mitchell said, to be -- given longevity -- one of the best backs ever to play that game.No pressure there, right?Yet Johnson embraces that kind of praise.Hearing some of the greats I watched growing up -- you know, Marshall Faulk -- being compared to some of those guys is amazing, Johnson said. But on the other hand it makes me want to live up to those expectations. So Im trying to do as much as I can off the field, on the field, in the weight room, nutrition, training room.Six running backs were drafted in 2015 before the Cardinals selected Johnson out of Northern Iowa in the third round, the 86th player chosen overall. And as anyone who has watched the All or Nothing video series chronicling last season knows, Johnson was not Arizonas first choice as a running back. A scene shows the Cardinals about to select Nebraskas Ameer Abdullah in the second round when Detroit snatched him away one pick ahead of them.That led to the selection of Johnson.You know, God has a way of stepping in, Mitchell said, smiling.The first time the 6-foot-1, 224-pound running back touched the ball in an NFL game, in the opener against New Orleans, Johnson took a short pass and ran away from everyone on a 55-yard touchdown play.The next week against Detroit, he returned the opening kickoff 108 yards -- a franchise record -- for a score. Two touches, two touchdowns.And when Chris Johnson went down with a knee injury, David Johnson was no longer being eased into the game.The role just kept increasing and opportunities just kept coming his way, coach Bruce Arians said. When you make the best of the opportunities, Wally Pipp you know, you forget about the other guy.Johnson wound up leading the team with 13 touchhdowns, most by any rookie in the league (eight rushing, four receiving and one by kickoff return).dddddddddddd.He totaled 1,636 all-purpose yards and became only the fourth player in NFL history to reach 500 yards rushing, 400 yards receiving, 500 yards in kickoff returns and score at least 13 touchdowns.I always had confidence in myself, Johnson said. I just wanted my shot. I just wanted my chance to prove that I was capable of being able to play in this league. Of course, I got down on myself a little bit when I wasnt getting any recognition out of college from some of the scouts and some of the coaches, but I always thought I had the ability to perform with these guys.Chris Johnson is back, helping David. There is no resentment. In Arians offense, both Johnsons know, there are plenty of opportunities.And David is turning heads in camp.Theres two runs that he pulled away from everybody, quarterback Carson Palmer said, and I mean everybody on the field -- and there were starters on the field.The soft-spoken Johnson calls himself a strider. People dont realize how fast he is, he said, until they see a defender trying to catch me.And its a long run from where he began.Johnson is a triplet who grew up in Clinton, Iowa, the fifth of six children to a single mother struggling to make ends meet. He has said his mother was jailed for a time on alcohol-related offenses before she found recovery and developed a strong Christian faith.He often looks back at how far he has come.I reflect on all the sacrifices, Johnson said, everything that I `ve been through growing up, not getting too much recognition coming out of college and all the hardships I had growing up. Every day I think back and thank God for giving me the blessing of doing it.This offseason, he got married. The couple is expecting a child.I couldnt ask for a better life right now, he said.---Online:AP NFL website: and ' ' '
