Silver for USA in volleyball, and they hadn't lost a match in the whole tournament. Won the first set 25-11. Seeing that 2016 Olympics are in Rio, I'd say Brazil will three-peat.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Great surprise World Junior and now Olympic champ Walcott. This was as surprising as Thorkildsen in 2004

They played like crap. They should be ashamed of themselves. They deserve to be booed off the court.

Brazil really up'd their level of play in the second set, and USA slowly started falling apart. Lost at least 4 service points in the second set. Brazil got hotter and hotter as the match went on.

Believe me, this will be a match they will be watching over and over again in the years to come. They had a great tournament, but the final three sets shouldn't even earn them a Bronze.

Chicherova 2.05 too classy in the women's jump and Barrett's reaction to the silver was great as well.

germany up 1-0 v. holland in the hockey final, halftime. pretty interesting match, the dutch had a few chances but blew them, mainly because weinhold, the goalie, reigns supreme and manages to kill everything the dutch bring along.

this will be a nail biter in the second half.

4x100 next

Near same times in the SF.

Jamaica adds Bolt for Bailey-Cole
US adds Gay and Bailey for Demps and Patton.

At this point, 3 exchanges without dropping the baton would be great, but maybe we can pip them somehow.

Field hockey has always seemed weird to me, the rule that you can play the ball only with one side of the stick seems a bit weird and unnatural. But good luck to your team
