Tokyo Olympics live updates: Simone Biles out of team final with apparent injury. Reigning Olympic gymnastics champion Simone Biles is out of the team finals after apparently suffering an injury during the vault. The 24-year-old U.S. star, considered to be the greatest gymnast of all time, huddled with a trainer after landing her vault. She then exited the competition floor with the team doctor. Biles returned several minutes later with her right leg wrapped. She took off her bar grips, and hugged teammates Grace McCallum, Sunisa Lee and Jordan Chiles before putting on a jacket and sweatpants. The Americans will be forced to finish the rest of the competition without her, severely hampering their bid to claim a third straight Olympic title. Biles arrived in Tokyo as the unquestioned star of the Games but struggled, at least by her high standards, during qualifying.
Tokyo Olympics 2020 Live Updates: Another judo gold for hosts Japan. It seems somewhat fitting that the hosts Japan are doing well at the traditional, storied home of judo, the Nippon Budokan. NAGASE Takanori has just won men's -81kg gold against Saeid Mollaei representing Mongolia, with a waza-ari in golden score. Bronzes went to Shamil Borchashvili (AUT) and Matthias Casse (BEL).
Fiji, Britain into semifinals, Argentina upsets South Africa - The Olympic rugby sevens podium will feature at least one new team in Tokyo after Argentina upset 2016 bronze medalist South Africa in the quarterfinals Tuesday immediately after silver medalist Britain rallied from a 21-point deficit to edge the United States. Defending champion Fiji capped Day 2 of competition with a 19-0 win over Australia to continue its unbeaten run in Olympic competition since rugby sevens made its debut in Rio de Janeiro. The Fijians will next play Argentina, which rebounded to beat South Africa 19-14, and Britain will have to contend with top-ranked New Zealand.
Tokyo Olympics 20202 Live Updates: Biles error on vault! What has happened here? Simone Biles seems to lose her way in the air on vault – like she did in warmups (she only did 1.5 twists instead of 2.5 in warmup) – and lands off balance with a big correction forward. She has done exactly the same here. 13.766 for her, leaving the USA on 42.732 after one rotation. They are rotating with fellow favourites ROC, who scored 43.799. Simone Biles 🇺🇸 earns 13.766 on Vault for a Yurchenko 5/2 twist that normally would have been an Amanar. Biles opened up early out of the twist and took a large hop forward on landing.
Fencing - South Korea tops China to reach women's team epee final -- South Korea trounced China in the women's team epee fencing event on Tuesday, robbing the world number one of an opportunity to claim a gold or silver medal. With strong individual fencers including Sun Yiwen, who won gold for the individual epee event just three days ago, the Chinese team, which had taken gold in the 2012 London Olympics and silver in the 2016 Rio Games, was a strong medal contender.
Chinese teens win Olympic diving gold to keep perfect record: China stretched their remarkable 100 percent Olympic record in women's synchronised 10m platform diving thanks to two fearless teenagers on Tuesday. China came into the pandemic-delayed Tokyo Games hoping for a clean sweep of diving golds, but they were stunned by British duo Tom Daley and Matty Lee on Monday. Normal service was resumed however as Chen Yuxi, who is just 15, and 17-year-old diving partner Zhang Jiaqi romped to a comfortable gold with 363.78 points at Tokyo Aquatics Centre. The Chinese have won the women's synchronised 10m platform gold at every Olympics since its debut at Sydney in 2000. Tuesday's gold was number six in the event. Jessica Parratto and Delaney Schnell of the United States won silver in a distant second (310.80 points), with bronze going to Mexico's Gabriela Agundez and Alejandra Orozco (299.70).
Shooters Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Saurabh Chaudhary finished seventh in the 10M Air Pistol Mixed Team finals at Tokyo 2020.
Sharath Thinking of Paris 2024
Sharath Kamal's performance against Chinese legend Ma Long in the round of 32 has further convinced him to take him part in the Paris Olympics, which will be his fifth and are “only” three years away.
“I played the best game possible and that has been my best Olympic Games, simple because of the way I played. The only thing I would like to change here is the draw. If I had anybody else in this situation (other than Ma) and I had a real good shot at reaching the quarterfinals,” he said.
The youngest athletes in modern Olympic history are participating in Tokyo this summer, and despite their young ages, they are here to play.
Stefanos Tsitsipas Gets Revenge on Frances Tiafoe to Make Third Round
Stefanos Tsitsipas advanced to the third round of the Olympics men’s tennis tournament on Tuesday as he avenged last month’s Wimbledon loss to Frances Tiafoe. The Greek third seed downed American Tiafoe 6-3, 6-4 under the centre court roof at Ariake Tennis Park, where all play on outside courts was delayed an hour by morning drizzle.

Review of Marijuana on Doping List
The president of World Athletics says a review is now sensible and “it should be” done.
Coe was at the U.S. Olympic trials last month when the 21-year-old Richardson won the 100 meters in 10.86 seconds. Her result was disqualified and she accepted a 30-day ban after she tested positive for a chemical found in marijuana.
Richardson said she had smoked to help cope with her mother’s recent death.
Coe says “I am sorry for her that we have lost an outstanding talent” from the Tokyo Games but adds the existing rules were interpreted correctly.
He says he has asked the independent Athletics Integrity Unit to work with the World Anti-Doping Agency on reassessing marijuana’s place on the prohibited list.
Coe says Richardson’s absence is “a loss to the competition” but he predicts “she will bounce back.”
