Other highlights from Wednesday's action include:

Beach volleyball: Americans Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh defeated fellow countrywomen Jen Kessy and April Ross in the finals of the beach volleyball tournament at the Horse Guards Parade to win their third consecutive Olympic gold medal.

Decathlon: After the first five events in the men’s decathlon at the 2012 Summer Olympics, American Ashton Eaton is the surefire favorite to win a gold medal. He blew out the competition in three of the first five events held Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium. To kick it off in the 100-meter dash, Eaton ran 10.35 seconds. The time was an Olympic record for the decathlon and seven one-hundredths of a second better than teammate Trey Hardee’s second-place run.

Basketball: The Spanish national basketball team needed late-game heroics to defeat France 66-59 and advance to the semifinals. Spain went on a run to pull away at the end of the quarterfinal match and left France frustrated. Small forward Nicolas Batum lashed out with seconds remaining in the game and ended up punching Juan Carlos Navarro in the groin.
