LONDON -- Rogers High School graduate Erik Kynard will continue his quest toward a men's high jump medal today at Olympic Stadium.

To view his competition, it will only be shown live online at NBCOlympics.com.

Kynard, who attends Kansas State, is seeded third among the remaining 14 competitors after clearing heights of 2.16, 2.21, and 2.26 meters cleanly on first attempts while making his second attempt count at 2.29 (7 feet, 6 inches).

The finals begin at 2:05 p.m., and NBCOlympics.com will begin an online broadcast at 1:55 p.m.

Great Britain's Robert Grabarz leads the field after qualifying, making all of his attempts without a miss while the top qualifier heading into the Games -- Ivan Ukhov of Russia -- missed just once at 2.26m before clearing 2.29m.

The event will be shown as an edited tape-delay broadcast on NBC at some point during their primetime show which starts at 8 p.m.
