After Biles's final floor exercise routine Thursday, the only question remaining was by how much she would defeat US teammate Aly Raisman for gold. That's an appellation that could never be applied to Raisman, who has spent her three days of competition in Rio performing at the absolute maximum of her abilities and was rewarded with a silver medal.
Efimova took silver and American teammate Katie Meili won bronze. "That's not who I am". I didn't understand what was going on. She didn't go out of her way to criticize Efimova, who was banned for 16 months for using a banned substance, then tested positive for a banned substance again earlier this year.
McKissic, an undrafted rookie from Arkansas State, stunned the Washington Redskins by returning the second-half kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown and the host Atlanta Falcons opened the preseason with a 23-17 victory on Thursday night. He's trying to allow me to make plays in camp so that I can get on the field". In receiving, Juluis Jones led with 1,871 yards and eight touchdowns while Jacob Tamme had 657 yards in 59 catches.
Medals certainly, probably at least one gold. How much has Lochte pushed Phelps? "It's been a hell of a career". The amazingness of this race was how Phelps was able to surprise us once more, even being as great as he is. Murphy extended American dominance of the backstroke events, which goes back to 1992. The Barcelona Games were the last time the United States lost a men's final in those events.
The German, who became International Olympic Committee president in 2013, claimed that by allowing Russian athletes to compete at the Games they would act as an example to others. That means US-based long-jumper Darya Klishina will be the only Russian athletics participant in Rio after she met the IAAF's "exceptional eligibility criteria".
Lochte had a rough race, finishing fifth and failing to earn a spot on the podium. Phelps said he was retiring after the London Olympics. While Phelps has never lost the 200 IM Olympic race dating back to Athens 2004, Lochte has won every World Championship since 2009 - although it should be noted, in that time Phelps only swam once (2011) at the Worlds.
Trey Flowers has been one of the most consistent backup edge players in training camp, and he has carried it over into the first preseason game. Drew Brees threw for 4,870 yards, 32 touchdowns and 11 interceptions by making 68.3 percent of his passes.
Seattle handed Porcello his first loss since May 17, snapping a streak of eight straight wins by the Boston right-hander. The newly acquired bullpen arm Abad didn't help either as his debut was giving up a 3 run homer to Robinson Cano. It's doubtful that O'Malley would have had time to get Holt at first, but had he kept the ball in the infield, he certainly would have prevented Travis Shaw from rounding third and scoring.
Ecuador says it will let Swedish officials interview Julian Assange at its embassy in London , where the WikiLeaks founder has been sheltering for the past four years. Ecuador has maintained it would allow Sweden to take custody of Assange if Stockholm guarantees that he would not be sent to the United States for prosecution over WikiLeaks' release of 500,000 USA diplomatic cables in 2010.
Moeen's innings of 108 against Pakistan at the Oval allowed England to reach 328 all out after they were wobbling at 110-5. "But we have to be dead certain he can come into our top six and get runs, because we'll be asking for runs first and bowling second".
Pieter Timmers of Belgium claimed the silver in 47.80, while Adrian made it onto the medal podium with the bronze in 47.85. Franklin, who led the United States to victory in the relay at the London Games, also earned a gold medal as a participant.
This time, he didn't even make the podium. He led at the midway point but faded to fifth. Phelps told the Los Angeles Times that they "bring each other to a different level". But he already said he will likely continue swimming past these Olympics. Lochte, 32, thought Rio might finally be the Games when it was "my turn" to shine in the spotlight Phelps has monopolized since 2004.
As a big league first baseman, he now sports a career.271 batting average with 51 home runs, 200 RBI and a.314 on-base percentage across 432 regular season outings. With runners on first and third, Suarez grounded Oh's first pitch to third, scoring a run, but starting a double play.

Russell Knox of Scotland held on for a one-stroke victory at 14-under-par 266 on Sunday to claim the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. Furyk, who finished tied for fifth, described his closing round as a grinding, mental struggle.
A Coachella Valley woman has tested positive for the Zika virus, which health officials said she contracted while traveling to Guatemala. Additionally, there are 21 new travel-related cases in Florida, including 17 in Broward County, according to the Florida Department of Health.
It was initially thought she had contracted a virus while playing overseas, but after spending four days in intensive care, doctors eventually diagnosed a rare strain of Leptospirois, a bacteria that can be transmitted through rat urine . No arrests have been made, and police are awaiting medical information about what, if any, poison was involved, the AP reported. But Professor Elizabeth Wellington, an environmental microbiologist at the University of Warwick, said: "If she has the ...
Her 14 world championships medals are the most in US history, and her 10 golds are the most won by any gymnast. On Thursday afternoon in Rio, Simone Biles and Aly Raisman represented Team USA in the women's gymnastics all-around finals against the best in the world.
So I'm happy for him. Froome's medal came after Team GB claimed two more silver medals in the pool, thanks to Siobhan-Marie O'Connor in the 200 metres individual medley and the men's 4x200m freestyle relay team. Froome had taken the sole British place, until Geraint Thomas' late inclusion following a spate of crashes in last Saturday's road race prompted the withdrawals of Australia's Richie Porte and Vincenzo Nibali of Italy.
The Rangers slugger wept Wednesday as he said health issues were forcing him to end his 12-season major league career. Fielder , 32, recently underwent his second neck surgery in a span of just over 26 months. Ironically, he'll finished tied with his father - Cecil Fielder . "They've still got work to do, I've still got some cheerleading to do". There will be a lot of words written about Fielder and his career in the coming days if he does end up retiring, but one quick note on his ...
It's clear that the Eagles will have to get pressure on the quarterback to have a chance. Wentz was certainly intriguing to watch during the Eagles' 17-9 win against Tampa Bay. Wentz's first drive of the second half led to a punt, but he delivered another promising moment, deftly handling a premature snap from center, scrambling to his right and evading a free rusher for a 10-yard completion on third down.
To put those scores on an even playing field, Raisman had 96.623 percent of Biles points. United States gymnast Simone Biles won the event ahead of her compatiot Alexandra Raisman and Russia's Aliya Mustafina. "No one goes in thinking they can beat Simone". The deduction for a fall in gymnastics is a point, so Biles technically could've fallen twice and walked away with gold.
Spain and the United States both won their first-round games in Group B. When a team brings the 2015 WNBA MVP (Ellena Delle Donne), a first-team 2015 All-WNBA performer ( Angel McCoughtry ) and the strong favorite to win 2016 WNBA rookie of the year (Breanna Stewart) off the bench, the other team is in trouble.
Just before Christmas 2003, Favres father, Irv, passed away. "But the most important thing is you taught us about fatherhood". When you hear a player give an acceptance speech at the HOF ceremony, it typically starts with an inductee thanking his family - followed up by those who remain an influence on them.
That left New Zealand's 2015 world championships silver medalist Lauren Boyle out in the cold after she finished ninth. "It's been a hell of a career". In 2000, in the Sydney Games, Phelps at 15 was the youngest male Olympian the United States had presented in almost 70 years. In the furious down-and-back sprint that is the 100 free, Chalmers rallied on the return lap to win with a time of 47.58.
The competitors for roster spots with the Colts and the Packers won't get the game back, though. "I don't think that's going to shock anybody", he said. Plans call for the new stadium to be completely finished before next year's Hall of Fame game, and to include all new turf and signage. Mistakes were also made in the attempt to rinse the paint from the playing surface.
Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - A luxury cruise ship called the Silver Cloud is anchored in Rio de Janeiro , serving as the temporary Olympic home of the USA basketballers, and as a reminder that the team outshines its rivals in every aspect. "Coach K wants us to pressure the ball and try to create those turnovers because we're so athletic and we can get out on the break", Durant said. After unveiling their team in NY in late June, the men reported three weeks later to training camp in Las Vegas ...
It started with a drive past Australian center David Andersen for a game-tying layup. When you have a leader like that that's just gonna leave it all out on the floor, no matter what possession is going on out there on the floor, he just stayed resilient.
But many think missing the Olympics has played a key part in her development to be the greatest female gymnast of all time . The Olympics are about more than just sports; it's a time when countries come together regardless of race or politics to root for their representatives.
Friday's ceremony lifts the curtain on a more than two-week sporting festival featuring superstars like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt.

It went on to say that Schweinsteiger is actually attracting "widespread interest", which means other teams aside from the English top division are also interested in getting his services this coming season. Guardiola disappointed City by joining Bayern Munich in 2013, but the suspense finally came to an end last February when it was announced that he would succeed Manuel Pellegrini on a three-year contract.
The champions will head to Humberside in fine spirits as they look to repeat their heroics from last season. "They lost one season and in the life of those big teams that can happen but, altogether, it only happens once in lifetime". Hull City caretaker boss Mike Phelan is braced to have just 13 senior players available for tomorrow's curtain-raiser against Leicester City at the KCOM Stadium.
The Hammers boss is also hopeful a work permit can be obtained to complete Jonathan Calleri's switch from Deportivo Maldonado when the Argentinian striker's participation in the Rio Olympics ends. Like every player he needs a pre-season but he came back very motivated". "It is the best league to work in , to play in , the most competitive one and the most covered one in the whole world", Bilic told the Daily Mail on Friday.
She won the silver in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay. Such a swim now would be considered a disappointment for Ledecky, who's well on her way to becoming the greatest freestyle swimmer ever . Canada's Santo Condorelli held the lead at the turn but faded during the final 50 meters as Adrian, Timmers and Chalmers closed in. "I think all of Kazakhstan will be drinking tonight", said Balandin, who won in 2:07.46.
Wahab Riaz lit up The Oval with another ferocious spell early on day one of the fourth Test against England , with the left-armer's return of 3-93 from 20 overs scarcely reflective of his efforts. But England had reckoned against the determination of Wahab to make an impact on the series and, after entering the attack in the 12th over, he should have struck with his 13th ball, when Iftikhar shelled a low edge at first slip off Cook - ironically the same position in which Mohammad Hafeez, ...
PEGI may have misinterpreted the nature of this unusual player-to-player interaction before manufacturing began for the limited edition, then corrected the mistake in time for the regular boxes to be made. Alongside these two indicators is a separate icon reserved for games that offer online options when players connect to the PlayStation Network. The game involves a lot of space exploration, discovering alien species as well as material farming.
