    The major U.S. Olympic trials are under way through July 2 in preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Live coverage of many events can be found on the NBC Sports Network, and selected videos will appear on NBCSports.com. Here's what you should watch Thursday June 21:

Johnston and Bryant totaled 637.80 points through the preliminaries and semifinals Sunday on opening night of the eight-day trials.

    Abby Johnston, 22, began diving in 2002 and was born in Columbus, Ohio. Previously a gymnast (she had to quit due to a back injury), Johnston is enrolled in a pre-med program and has interned in the brain tumor clinic at Duke Hospital in North Carolina.
