Anthony scored America's first nine points and when the Boomers took a 72 - 70 lead early in the fourth he put the U.S. on his back, levelling the score with a layup before pouring in four triples. The Americans trailed at halftime by five marking the first time the U.S. national team trailed at halftime in an Olympic game since 2004. An eventual double-digit win didn't tell the full story for Team USA, which needed to overcome an early struggle against a talented Australian team that never ...
Biles nodded her head and smiled at her own personal cheering section of Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian and Gabby Douglas. Biles held the lead in her group after her opening on the vault with a score of 15.866. If she can leave Rio with five golds, then it's hard to imagine anyone coming close to her level of dominance for quite a long time. The 19-year-old from Spring, Texas, was her typically brilliant self here Thursday, cementing what has been clear for years now that she is the best ...
One day before the doubles loss, a virus cost Venus her first-round singles match, leaving her with cramping, dehydration and stomach pain.

J.A. Happ won his ninth consecutive decision, Edwin Encarnacion reached 30 home runs for the fifth straight season en route to their eighth victory in 11 games. He then got five more outs before Marwin Gonzalez and Jose Altuve hit back-to-back doubles to cut Torontos lead to 3-1. The Astros almost capitalized in the eighth inning.
It's going to be very interesting competing against him. There was always that aura about Old Trafford and playing in front of the fans in a massive stadium, which I used to think about. 2014/15 Premier League champions, Chelsea, have appointed former Italy and Juventus coach, Antonio Conte, as their new manager. Instead, it may just be more of the same.
They lost one season - and in the life of those big teams that can happen but altogether it only happens once in lifetime. While this game might not be the most anticipated game we will see in the coming weeks, it will surely be a game that will show us how this season will look for the reigning champions.
The Chicago Bears have some new pieces this year as well, but one big question is the status of Kevin White , the 2015 first-round pick that missed all of last season with an injury. In receiving, Demaryius Thomas had 1,304 yards and six touchdowns in 105 receptions while Emmanuel Sanders added 1,135 yards and six touchdowns in 76 receptions.
After his first innings 113, he picked up a seven-for in the second innings to spin India to an innings win.

Machado connected again for a two-run homer in the third off Matt Albers to become the second player in baseball history, per STATS, to homer in each of the first three innings and the first to hit all three over the fence. I know he was upset with the first one Manny hit that came back over the plate. You can't do that to this team - they're too good of a team and I've got to do a better job today overall.
They've every reason to celebrate after securing a UEFA Super Cup triumph over Spanish rivals Sevilla - and Real Madrid certainly did so in style, Daily Mail reports. He's grown as a player, too. Real Madrid head into the match without Gareth Bale, who has been given a longer holiday after his heroics with the Welsh national team at Euro 2016.
When Matt Jones followed world No.1 Day, No.7 Scott and No.46 Marc Leishman in pulling out of Olympic selection one month ago, the 38-year-old and his kids were elated. "It felt like I needed to get off to a fast start", Fraser said. "It would have been a great trick to play on me if my ball ended up 20 yards over the back".
So I dedicate it to him and to my seven players who didn't play today. Leicester talisman Jamie Vardy had earlier punished an error by Marouane Fellaini to cancel out FA Cup match-winner Jesse Lingard's first-half solo goal for United, who claimed a record-extending 21st Community Shield.
Canada took the bronze in 7:45.39. She missed the 200 free final in her only other individual event in Rio. "This has all been in my training plan since January, and I qualified with the top result", Hovorov said. Ledecky added the relay gold to her individual triumphs in the 200m and 400m free. Hosszu won her third gold medal with victory in the women's 200 individual medley.
Australia's Emma McKeon took the bronze. In the women's freestyle race that kicked off the medal events in the late-night session at Rio's aquatic center, Ledecky edged Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom by 0.35 seconds with a finishing time of 1:53.73.
Silver: Aly Raisman (gymnastics ) - Raisman captained the USA women's gymnastics team to back-to-back Olympic gold medals in Tuesday's team competition. "That was fun", - Ledecky said after her win in the women's 200 metre freestyle. She's still got the 800 free to go. Victor of three golds and five medals overall in London four years ago, she battled depression and didn't qualify for an individual event in Rio .
Arsenal became an nearly unstoppable force under Wenger; the French manager has been at the helm for nearly 20 years now and contributed to the club's success by guiding them to three Premier League titles, including an unbeaten season - a feat yet to be matched by any other club in the league.
Sjostrom finished fourth in the 100 fly at the London Games four years ago, missing out on the bronze by just 23-hundredths of a second.

Katie Ledecky, 19, won her third gold of the Rio Olympics (fourth career gold) as the anchor in the USA women's 4X200-meter freestyle relay Wednesday night. RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Katie Ledecky was the fastest swimmer in the pool, and she brought her American teammates along for the ride. Phelps is already up to three gold medals in the Rio Olympics: 200m butterfly and freestyle relays 4x100m and 4x200m.
Cate holds the world record, but her sister, Bronte, is the current world title holder. If she wins the final on Friday, Ledecky will become the first swimmer since Debbie Meyer in 1968 to sweep the 200, 400 and 800 freestyles. Medals will also be awarded in fencing, judo, archery, canoe slalom and shooting. In total, 19 gold medals will be decided. The 31-year-old won his 21st Olympic gold medal in the early hours of Wednesday morning, when he won the 200-metre butterfly final.
Except she never does and rarely is. Ellie Black earned Canada's best ever Olympic finish in the women's individual all-around gymnastics, finishing in fifth place.

And has a chance to control some of the momentum from her somersault.
She earned her third gold of the Rio games on Wednesday in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay. As she approached the first wall, Ledecky was closing in on the lead, and by the time she emerged from the water after one of her now-trademark power turns, she had pushed to the front.
Unlike Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky , who continue to add to their medal collection, Ryan Lochte has only one shot at an individual award at the Rio Olympics . "But I screwed up, '" he said. Lochte cultivated a persona of "relaxed partying frat bro" and made headlines doing stuff like wearing a grill, injuring himself while breakdancing so he couldn't swim for six months and publicly joining Tinder before the Rio Olympics (I assume he thought it'd be hard to meet people at the ...
If Phelps wins, it will be his fourth straight individual medley title at the Olympics . Phelps made a tactical error, though, in the 100 fly heats. By the time Ledecky got in the pool for her leg, the Americans were.89 behind the Aussies. "I was just going out and giving my best to give them the lead".
James was originally selected with the No. 1 overall pick by the Cavaliers all the way back in 2003, and he remained in Cleveland through the 2009-2010 season before infamously taking his talents to the Miami Heat. I just can't wait to get the group back together - the team, the franchise, more importantly, get everybody together, the fans. He'll earn $31M in the 2016-17 season, making him the league's highest paid player for the first time in his career.
The Cavaliers and their star have agreed to terms on a new three-year contract that will make the NBA's biggest star its highest-paid player with a $31million salary next season.

Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera, 26, seems just as excited at playing with Ibrahimovic, who has won titles in Holland, Spain, Italy and France during his illustrious career. "We're in a very good spot now, we think we can challenge for the Premier League, and we want to put a marker down, in the Community Shield with Leicester".
Ibrahimovic became the Red Devils' second summer signing last month as new manager Jose Mourinho moved quickly to bolster his attacking options at Old Trafford ahead of his first season in charge. "There was one game, Cagliari v Inter, during which nothing was working - we were so bad it wasn't easy to see that we were actually playing football".
The water polo pool at the same venue is also slowly undergoing a similar transformation as the diving pool. But they took a couple of days to explain what had turned the once Mediterranean-blue water in the diving pool into a murky pea-soup green.
Maybe not stunned, but the US men's basketball team, widely perceived to be invincible until Wednesday night's scare at Carioca Arena 1, at least appeared a bit shaken. United States coach Mike Krzyzewski was full of praise for the Australians, describing them as genuine gold medal contenders. "DeAndre (Jordan) and DeMarcus (Cousins) were great on the boards".
He told proudly, that he was going to meet Mr. Trump personally, that was his aim. Believe me, if my goal was not significant, I would not risk my life pursuing it. When that didn't work, they lowered a scaffold containing NYPD officers in another attempt to block his progress. The climber continued eluding the police, climbing toward angled corners of the building.
The extent to which the U.S.is playing a different game is reflected in the combination of skills and physical gifts of all three players. Lisa Leslie holds the mark for an entire Olympics with 14. The United States women improve to 2-0 at the Rio Olympics with a 103-63 win over Spain on Monday. We just pulled it through, played together, aggressive, got transition buckets.
Ranieri continued in the same vein by insisting that bookmakers should price his side at even longer for the title than the now infamous 5,000/1 that was offered this time previous year. Although he might not get as much acclaim as his peers, we, for one, believe the diminutive Dane can be a menace for the opposing defenders as he goes about his duties, with defenders realising what has hit them only after the move has been completed.
With India in a spot of bother at 126/5, Ashwin and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha steered the innings back on track as they amassed an unbeaten 108-run partnership before stumps was called. There was a good chance that you might be nicked off or you might get a good ball any time. After lunch, the 19-year-old snared Rohit caught behind, while allrounder Roston Chase continued his excellent series by picking up two wickets with his off-spin.
