The most decorated woman in United States Olympic track and field history went for one more Saturday in Rio.

Here are our 4 to Watch for Saturday:

1. Felix's Last Dash

Southern California sprint star Allyson Felix, who led the 4x100 relay team to gold, ended her Olympics (and probably her Olympic career) with gold in the 4x400 relay. With Friday night’s 4x100 victory, Felix can now stake claim to having more gold medals than any woman in track and field history. Felix, who now lives in Santa Clarita, added one more as she and Team USA siezed the country's sixth consecutive gold in the 4x400.

2. Hoop Dreams Come True

The United States has won gold in women's basketball in the last five Olympics. This year's Olympians have put on a teamwork clinic, bulldozing through the field on the way to the gold medal game.

The team includes Chino Hill's Diana Taurasi, who is playing in her fourth Olympics. 

The U.S. women's basketball team won a sixth consecutive Olympic gold medal Saturday, trouncing Spain 101-72 in Rio.

3. Men's Soccer Final

There were some group stage questions, but most of those have been put to rest after some strong performances by the Brazilians. They throttled Honduras 6-0 in the semifinal.

There was added incentive for Brazil to play well considering the opponent — Germany. Although the lineups are vastly different, the Germans shocked Brazil with a 7-1 thrashing at the 2014 World Cup.

Brazil won its first gold medal in men's soccer on home turf Saturday, edging Germany in a tense penalty shootout after the game ended tied 1-1.

Brazil's captain and star player Neymar scored the winning penalty, booting the ball into right corner as the German goalkeeper dove the wrong way. He broke into tears as his teammates swarmed him in a rapturous Maracana Stadium in Rio.

4. Women's Volleyball Bronze Medal Match

Karch Kiraly and the U.S. women’s volleyball team rebounded from a semifinal shocker. The Anaheim-based squad came away with bronze when it defeated the Netherlands. The U.S. beat them in a tight, five-setter 12 days ago.
