In case you missed it
- Winners and losers from day 3 of the Olympics.
- On Monday, the future officially arrived when U.S. swimming phenom Missy Franklin earned her first individual Olympic gold medal by conquering the competition in the 100-meter backstroke in London. If Franklin's rapid ascent up the global swimming step ladder is any indication, it’s the first of many Olympic awards that will eventually hang from the bright-eyed superstar's neck.
- France's Yannick Agnel has been Ryan Lochte's demon at these Olympics. After catching the American to capture France's first Olympic gold medal in the 4x100 free relay, Agnel outswam the field in the 200 free, winning by nearly two seconds.
- Also in swimming, Matt Grevers of the U.S. won gold in the men's 100-meter back. Fellow American Nick Thoman won silver.
- Everything seemed perfect for the U.S. Olympic men's gymnastics team not long ago. But then all that anticipation turned into disappointment during Monday's team finals. China blew the U.S. gymnasts out of the water. Great Britain, Japan and Ukraine were left fighting for the final two podium spots, while Team USA finished fifth. What exactly went wrong for Team USA that left them off the podium? Here's a look at the 10 things that went wrong for the U.S. men's gymnastics team. - Another day, another beach volleyball win for Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh. In their second match of Olympic group play, the duo that is actually only ranked third in the world rolled to a straight-set win over Kristyna Kolocova and Marketa Slukova of the Czech Republic.
- In one of the strangest moments of the 2012 London Olympics, South Korean fencer Shin A Lam lost a highly controversial decision in the semifinals and then refused to leave the arena as her team scrambled to make an appeal. Shin was tied with German Britta Heidemann in the semifinal match of the women's individual épée when a clock error occurred. Details here.
