2021 Olympics Live Updates – US Hoops Extend Win Series, Tatiana Schoenmaker Sets World Swimming Record, Athletics Begins


More Tokyo Olympics, more life. The action kicked off on Thursday night when we first crossed the track since the grand opening when the qualifying events began. The USA team has medal candidates in Rai Benjamin in the men’s 400m hurdles competition and Athing Mu and Ajee ’Wilson in the women’s 800m hurdles.

The Americans continued the regularly planned chase for pool hardware as two-time gold medalist Lilly King, who won a bronze medal in the women’s 100m breaststroke earlier this week, won silver in the 200m breaststroke after a record-breaking world effort by South African Tatiana Schoemaker. American Annie Lazor won bronze.

Three-time gold medalist Ryan Murphy, who won bronze in the 100-meter backstroke earlier this week, did one better in the 200-backstroke, winning silver.

Then, for the late-night audience, we had to watch A’ja Wilson, Breanna Stewart & Co. win the 51st consecutive Olympic victory of the U.S. women’s basketball team, defeating the Japanese team they led after the first quarter.

If you are looking for updates on all the Olympic actions, you have come to the right place.

Women’s hoops from the US remain perfect

The United States women’s basketball team won the 51st Olympic game in a row with a 86-69 victory over Japan. It was not easy, because Japan led 30-28 after the first quarter, but the Americans withdrew. A’ja Wilson took the lead with 20 points and added this big blocked shot in the second period in which the Americans took the lead.

Brittney Griner and Breanna Stewart had 15 points each for the USA team, which next plays France in the pool on Monday. Stewart also had another big block for the Americans.

He goes down for a quick start

Athing Mu, a 19-year-old from Trenton, New Jersey, did her part in the first women’s 800-meter race as she won and proved to be the right factor for gold.

Ruling BMX gold medalist Connor Fields of the United States was carried away on a stretcher after crashing in the third semifinal match at the Tokyo Olympics. Fields was fourth after opening two laps and landed hard with a jump that took the first turn in the third run. The 28-year-old from Las Vegas crashed into a turn and lay down on the trail while medical staff rushed to help him. The fields were worked on for a few minutes before they were taken away. He advanced to the finals, but will not be able to compete.

The trail is here!

The U.S. team had to get out on the track for the first time, and Rai Benjamin noticed that he was ready to perform in his first 400-meter hurdles race.

Suni Lee’s exit to the top

United States gymnast Suni Lee overcame circumstances that were not ideal and became the fifth consecutive gold medal in gymnastics for women in America. It was quite a ride for an 18-year-old A native of Minnesota.

American Andrew took fifth place in the 200 IM, showing a confusion from childhood

China’s Wang Shun won gold in the 200m medley in 1:55, followed by Duncan Scott of the UK and Switzerland’s Jérémy Desplanches. American Michael Andrew, who led most of the race, fell in the final lap and finished fifth. Michael Phelps was the four-time defender of the Olympic champion at this event. – Aishwarya Kumar

Despite not winning a medal, Andrew still got little time to talk to Phelps in 2008 and was viciously robbed in a way that suggested he knew he would be at the Olympic pool in the future.

Australian McKeon set an Olympic record in the women’s 100 freestyle

100 meters free was the Australian question. Emma McKeon won her first individual gold medal, while teammate Cate Campbell won bronze. Hong Kong’s Siobhan Haughey, who won silver in the 200m freestyle, won another silver in this race. – Aishwarya Kumar

Rylov finishes swinging his back, American Murphy takes the silver

Defending champion Ryan Murphy won silver in the 200-meter backstroke. Murphy, who also won bronze in the 100-meter backstroke, was just behind Russian Olympic Committee Evgeny Rylov, who finished in 1: 54.27, an Olympic record. This is the first time since 1992 that the American has not won gold in any backstroke discipline. – Kumar

After training together every day for the past three months, Americans Lilly King and Annie Lazor finished second and third in the 200-meter breaststroke for silver and bronze, respectively. South African tennis player Tatjana Schoenmaker won a gold medal with a world record of 2:18:95. – Aishwarya Kumar

Dressel does things on Dressel

After winning his first individual Olympic gold in the 100-meter freestyle on Wednesday, Caeleb Dressel won his place in the 100-meter butterfly final, finishing first in his semi-final race with a record Olympic time of 49.71. He will compete in the finals on Friday. – Aishwarya Kumar

Ross and Kleinman continue

The female duo in beach volleyball of the United States, April Ross and Alix Klineman, was for some time earned for their money by Dutch duo Madelein Meppelink and Sanne Keizer, who won the match against Team USA first team. But Ross and Kleinman joined in, scoring 15-5 in the 3rd game to finish the game at the pool undefeated.

It’s getting shredded

Olympic golf for men is deep in action on Day 2, and Chilean Mito Pereira is feeling pretty good. It went hot, shooting 3-below through six holes after this shiny chip from the bunker.

The perfect accessory for gold medals

Diving is not the only thing British Tom Daley does on a global scale. The gold medalist, who along with teammate Marty Lee won the 10-meter synchronized diving discipline, developed his knitting skills to create the ultimate medal memory.

There’s no word on whether they’ll be available to the general public, but let’s be real – you’d buy them.
