Two of the most prominent sprinting nations meet on Wednesday as Jamaica and the U.S. clash in the women's 200-meter final.

Five of the eight competitors consist of Jamaican and American athletes, and both nations figure to win a medal in the event.

The competition kicks off at 4 p.m. eastern time, and can be seen online here.

It has already been a successful Olympics for Jamaica, as the nation boasts the fastest woman and man in the world in Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Usain Bolt. Now the Caribbean nation sets its sights on a sweep of the 100-meter and 200-meter finals.

Fraser-Pryce and compatriot Veronica Campbell-Brown are expected to challenge for the gold, as the pair posted the best sprint results in these London Games and the two previous Olympics.

Fraser-Pryce wrapped up the gold in the 100-meters on Aug. 4, and Campbell-Brown looks to be the first female Olympian ever to win the same event in three consecutive games, having won gold in the previous 200-meter finals in Beijing and Athens.

Allyson Felix represents the U.S.'s best chance of toppling the formidable Jamaican duo, placing first in each of her 200-meter preliminary races with times of 22.31 and 22.71 respectively. Although she only placed fifth in the 100-meter final in these Olympics, the 25-year-old received the silver in the 200-meter finals in 2004 and 2008.

The Americans also counter with Sanya Richards-Ross and Carmelita Jeter. Richards-Ross streaked to the gold in the 400-meter in Aug. 5, and Jeter earned the silver medal in the 100-meter final.

Prediction: Fraser-Pryce (G), Campbell-Brown (S), Felix (B)
