The second day of the Sochi Olympics won't feature quite as many local athletes as Saturday, but that doesn't mean it won't be just as exciting!

Here's who to watch, and when:

5:30 a.m. CT: Michigan speed skater Jilleanne Rookard will compete in her second Olympics. She is set to skate in the women's 3,000-meter speed skating event. Rookard also qualified for the 1500m after finishing third in the distance. Despite being one of the favorites, she dropped out of the 5000m skate after qualifying for the 3000m and 1500m. Watch live here.

9:00 a.m. CT: The first figure skating Olympic medal of the Sochi Games is awarded Sunday morning. America will introduce, for the first time, U.S. darling and local skaters Gracie Gold and Jason Brown, a newcomer who became a sudden YouTube sensation after his firecracker performance at the U.S. Championships.

Brown is up first, followed by Gold and Midwest ice dance pair Meryl Davis and Charlie White. Watch it live on NBC Sports and NBCOlympics.com. Or wait until 7 p.m. and catch it on NBC.
