As the Olympics continue, it’s time to take a look at what’s happening in the games. The U.S. and Canada have been facing off in soccer for the semifinals, while gymnastics has continued with Simone Biles taking home a gold medal.
The soccer is in the olympics is a question that many people may be asking. So far, we know that gymnastics and swimming are in the games.
Tokyo time is 1:45 p.m. on August 2nd.
Here’s what you should be aware of:

TOKYO, JAPAN — In the quarterfinals, the United States women’s soccer team lost one game, tied another, and required penalties to defeat the Netherlands. The squad, though, is still alive and will play Canada in the semifinals on Monday at 5 p.m. Tokyo time, 4 a.m. Eastern.
Three additional gymnastics event finals will take place at the same time, with Jade Carey of the United States competing in the women’s floor exercise.
Men compete in the long jump and steeplechase, while women compete in the discus, 100-meter hurdles, and 5,000 meters. The long jump and hurdles will take place on Sunday night, US time, with the other events taking place in the early hours of Monday.
On Sunday night, April Ross and Alix Klineman of the United States compete in a round of 16 match against Lidianny Echevarria Benitez and Leila Consuelo Martinez Ortega of Cuba, who are still unbeaten in Tokyo.
At 6 a.m. Eastern, the US men’s baseball team will play Japan; the loser will not be eliminated, but will have a significantly narrower road to the gold medal.
The date has been changed to August 1, 2023.
An previous version of this article’s title misstated the soccer team that the US women would face due to an editing mistake. Canada, not the Netherlands, is the country in question.

Gianmarco Tamberi of Italy and Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar matched each other all evening in the men’s high jump until they both failed to reach 7 feet 10 inches on three consecutive attempts. They were in the midst of sudden-death overtime when one of the referees asked if they wanted to settle for a tie instead, citing an obscure regulation.
“Do you mind if we have two golds?” He was questioned by Barshim.
Tamberi and Barshim hugged, their bromance on show, assuring themselves that they could.
Barshim described him as “one of my dearest pals.” “We’re constantly together,” says the narrator.
Barshim was so ecstatic that he shattered his sunglasses.
He replied, “It’s OK.” “I have around 50 pairs.”
Tamberi retained her cast after missing the 2016 Olympics due to a leg injury and inscribed “Road to Tokyo 2023” on it. He wiped off “2020” and scribbled “2021” after the Games were postponed last year. He wore the cast to the stadium on Sunday as a reminder of his dedication.
Tamberi won gold in the men’s 100-meter dash only minutes before his countryman Lamont Marcell Jacobs did. Jacobs said that he was inspired. Only then, he said, did the prospect of winning his race seem realistic.
“Olympic champions for us and for Italy,” Jacobs added.

TOKYO, JAPAN — Raven Saunders of the United States won silver in the shot put earlier in the day.
After collecting her medal late at night, Saunders lifted her arms and crossed them in the form of a “X” on the podium, setting the scene for a confrontation between the International Olympic Committee and US Olympic officials.
The organizations have differing regulations and viewpoints on how free speech should be exercised during the Olympics.
When asked about the significance of the gesture after the award ceremony as she went into a phalanx of television cameras, Saunders replied it was “for oppressed people.”
After the United States won bronze in foil, Race Imboden, an American fencer, walked to the podium at a separate location a few minutes later. On his hand, he had a circular “X” inscribed on it. Imboden knelt at the Pan Am Games in 2019 during the playing of the national anthem.
Imboden did not have the sign on his hand during Sunday’s bronze medal match, according to photos taken during the tournament. The significance of the symbol was unknown, but American Olympic officials said they had started to hear of athletes organizing demonstrations in recent days.
The I.O.C. and its American equivalents immediately said that the issue will be handled by the opposite side.
Saunders’ gesture seemed to the I.O.C. to be a clear breach of the organization’s ban on political protests on the podium or during contests, despite the I.O.C. relaxing its regulations against demonstrations in other areas under its control in recent months.
The United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee has a distinct set of regulations and has said that athletes who use their free speech rights without expressing hatred will no longer be punished.

After her country’s Olympic Committee attempted and failed to forcefully deport her after she criticized her coaches for enrolling her for the incorrect event, a Belarusian sprinter claimed on Sunday that she was under the protection of Japanese police.
Kristina Timanovskaya, a Russian sprinter, said on Instagram on Sunday night that she had sought refuge in Japan because she worried for her safety in Belarus, where strongman leader Aleksandr G. Lukashenko, who has been in power for 27 years, has tried to suppress any opposition.
Ms. Timanovskaya told the independent Belarusian news site Zerkalo.io, “I’m scared they may throw me in prison in Belarus.” “I’m not concerned about being sacked or booted off the national team; I’m concerned about my safety. And I believe that it is now unsafe for me to be in Belarus.”
After consulting with a doctor, the Belarusian National Olympic Committee, which is led by Mr. Lukashenko’s oldest son Victor Lukashenko, said on Sunday that Ms. Timanovskaya had been removed from the Games due to her “emotional and psychological condition.”
Ms. Timanovskaya said she had never been checked by a doctor and that she was in excellent physical and mental condition. She said she was kicked from her country’s squad because she “talked on my Instagram about our coaches’ carelessness.”
She requested assistance from the International Olympic Committee in a video shot at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. The I.O.C. stated in a statement that it was looking into the matter.
“The I.O.C. has seen the media claims and is looking into it,” the statement stated.
Ms. Timanovskaya, 24, was set to compete in the 200-meter sprint in the Olympic Games for the first time this summer. She was told, however, that she would be competing in the 4×400-meter relay since several members of the squad had not completed enough antidoping tests to qualify for the event.

TOKYO — The world’s fastest man has a new rival.
Lamont On Sunday, Italy’s Marcell Jacobs raced to Olympic gold in the men’s 100-meter dash, with a time of 9.80 seconds. Jacobs, 26, was born in El Paso and moved to Italy as a kid with his mother.
In 9.84 seconds, Fred Kerley of the United States came in second, while Andre De Grasse of Canada came in third (9.89).
Usain Bolt, who retired after the 2017 world championships after winning the 100- and 200-meter races at three consecutive Olympics from 2008 to 2016, has long dominated the sport.
Surprisingly, Trayvon Bromell of the United States was not among the semifinalists, despite having the quickest career best among the semifinalists: 9.77 seconds, which he ran in June.
He finished third in the second of three semifinals on Sunday, losing out on an automatic berth in the final by a thousandth of a second after finishing fourth in his opening-round heat on Saturday. Bromell was knocked out of the final because the top four runners in the third semifinal were all quicker than him.

Another prominent American was missing from the field: reigning world champion Christian Coleman, who is serving a ban following a series of failed drug tests.
There was no obvious favorite, and none appeared capable of filling the gap left by Bolt, a brilliant and captivating figure on the track who transcended the sport. The final on Sunday, however, was full with suspense, owing to the fact that no one knew who would win.

Noodle businesses, skewer shops, and sushi counters abound throughout Tokyo. On sluggish bus journeys from one Olympic site to another, those of us covering the Games look at it all through tinted glass.
There’s a solid explanation behind this. Japan is in an emergency situation. The number of people infected with the Coronavirus is on the increase. Thousands of outsiders, such as me, an American journalist, being let into a city — into its restaurants, bars, and shops — would be a bad idea. However, we must eat.
Enter the Olympics’ saving grace, the glue that holds it all together: Tokyo’s 24-hour convenience shops, or conbini as they’re called in Japan. For many visitors navigating one of the weirdest Games in history, they have rapidly become a major source of nourishment — and, more unexpectedly, gastronomic pleasure.
Athletes, team staff members, officials, and media are all restricted from leaving our accommodations and visiting the Olympic sites. Trips outside of this “bubble” are limited to 15 minutes.
Outside of the Olympic boundaries, we can’t travel the galaxy of food, but a conbini is a gastronomic universe unto itself, with bento boxes, fried meats, sushi, noodles aplenty, and all sorts of complex plastic-wrapped dinners and unusual snacks.
Every day, a Lawson store in the foyer of the main press building is packed with international shoppers looking for their next meal.
People returning from late events gaze, frozen by choice, upon unending rows of ready-to-eat foodstuffs, looking to match component parts into a perfectly bespoke meal. The 7-Eleven outside my hotel hums with activity long after midnight, as people returning from late events gaze, frozen by choice, upon unending rows of ready-to-eat foodstuffs, looking to match component parts into a perfectly bespoke meal.
Even sportsmen have been seen with overloaded snack shopping bags.

Rebeca Andrade won the vault final at the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday with two high-flying vaults that made complex, gravity-defying feats seem easy, giving Brazil its first gold medal in women’s gymnastics.
Her Olympic performances continue to improve.
Andrade, 22, won silver in the all-around final last week, finishing barely behind American Sunisa Lee. She dedicated her silver medal, Brazil’s first Olympic medal in women’s gymnastics, to her nation, her coaches, and her medical team, who had helped her recover from yet another severe injury to her right knee.
Andrade came up on top with a total of 15.083 points. The silver medal went to MyKayla Skinner of the United States, who is retiring after these Olympics. Yeo Seo-jeong earned bronze for South Korea and is the country’s first female gymnastics medallist.

Andrade missed the world championships in 2019 after undergoing her third surgery in four years to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee. Her Brazilian squad could not qualify for Tokyo without her. And she just qualified for the Games as an individual in June.
Andrade’s last-minute attempt to participate in Tokyo paid off: her highest finish in her last Olympics, the 2016 Rio Games, was 11th in the all-around.
The Cheng, which consists of a roundoff onto the springboard, a half twist into the vault, and a front layout with 112 twists, was her first of two vaults. Her second routine included a roundoff onto the springboard, a back handspring onto the vault, and a back layout with 212 twists. She didn’t land on each of the landings, but her execution and height helped her get good marks.
Because Simone Biles was unable to compete due to a mental health problem, Andrade faced two American competitors in the vault: Jade Carey and Skinner.

Carey, who was second in vault qualification last week, seemed to alter her run-up to her first vault, which was intended to be a Cheng but she ended up falling out and only completing a Yurchenko tuck, which is one somersault with no twists. She managed to keep her calm long enough to execute a second vault, although the landing required one large stride. Her total score of 12.416 points was insufficient to qualify her for the medals.
Skinner was equally astounded, but in a different manner. She believed her Olympics — and her career — were gone when she finished fourth in the vault last week after qualifying. She was left out of the finals when Biles and Carey finished ahead of her in qualifying. Only two gymnasts per nation progress to the finals in the all-around and each apparatus.
Skinner, who was an alternate in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, said she was saddened by how these Olympics panned out for her in an Instagram post.
“With this, my gymnastics career comes to an end, and the only regrets I have are due to circumstances beyond my control. So there aren’t any regrets,” she wrote. “For the time being, all I can do is attempt to fill the hole in my heart.”
When Biles withdrew from the vault on Saturday, Skinner was given the opportunity to put on her competition leotard one more time and see if she could win.
“Doing this for us @Simone Biles,” she said on Instagram once again. It’s time to go, baby!”
Finally, Skinner, who Lee dubbed the squad’s “grandma” because of her extensive national team experience, will return to Arizona with a long-awaited Olympic medal around her neck.

During the uneven bars final on Sunday, Nina Derwael of Belgium took advantage of her competitors’ errors and nervousness to win the gold medal in her speciality.
Derwael, a two-time world champion on uneven bars, didn’t perform as brilliantly on bars as she did in qualifying last week, but her routine was good enough — and tough enough — to win. She flew over, beneath, and between the bars, as though gliding in the wind, and received 15.2 points for her performance. Derwael enveloped herself in the Belgian flag and flashed a big grin at her tiny cheering section in the largely empty Ariake Gymnastics Center when the speaker announced her as the winner.
On the uneven bars, Russia’s Anastasiia Iliankova finished second with 14.833 points, earning the silver medal. With 14.5 points, Sunisa Lee of the United States won bronze.
|Comite Olympique Russe|
The Belgian winner was scheduled to compete for gold with Lee, who is also an expert on uneven bars. Lee typically has the world’s toughest uneven bars routine and gets rewarded with a high mark for it.
Lee, however, had a wobbly performance on Sunday, three days after winning the gold medal in the all-around, and failed to connect many of her abilities, lowering her difficulty score. Her execution was also not as precise as normal. She started shaking her head in dissatisfaction as she completed her performance.
Lee stated the day before the competition that she felt pressured to win gold on the bars, especially after winning the all-around championship.

In the 125-year history of the Olympics, no Italian man had ever won an Olympic medal in the 100-meter dash. Lamont Marcell Jacobs is the first Italian to be named the world’s fastest man.
Jacobs won gold in the men’s 100-meter dash on Sunday, setting a European record with a time of 9.80 seconds.
Jacobs, a 26-year-old sprinter and long jumper, is the son of an Italian mother and an African-American father and was born in El Paso. When his father, a US Army soldier, was sent to South Korea, he and his mother relocated to Italy.
Jacobs’ parents divorced when he was a baby, but The Associated Press reports that he reunited with his father for the first time a year ago. He stated that discovering his father was part of his mental preparation for the Games after winning the 100-meter dash on Sunday.
Jacobs stated, “I never saw my father from that moment.” “However, it was only a year ago that I began speaking with him for the first time. This helped me come here in a positive frame of mind.”
Jacobs started participating in sports at the age of nine, leaning to sprinting and long jump, according to the Tokyo Olympics website. His Instagram account is @crazylongjumper, a nickname he has tattooed on his body with the names of his three children and his girlfriend.
While participating in the long jump, he made his first impact at the national level. With a distance of 7.89 meters, he won the Italian Athletics Championships in long jump in 2016.
He won his first 100-meter dash championship in 2018 and started to close in on the event’s elusive 10-second barrier. In May of this year, he broke the Italian 100-meter record with a time of 9.95 seconds, becoming the 150th person in history to complete the event in under 10 seconds.
Jacobs focused his eyes on the Olympics after winning the Italian record. He had aspired to be an Olympian from the first time he walked on the track, he told Corriere Della Sera.
“I had a newspaper article of the iconic Carl Lewis advertisement with him wearing stiletto heels in the starting blocks on my bedroom wall,” he said. “However, as a kid, Andrew Howe, who is mixed race and half-American, was my hero. I could relate to him.”

Simone Biles has withdrawn from her third Olympic solo apparatus final, leaving her with just one event to participate in.
Biles withdrew from the floor exercise final planned for Monday, according to a statement from USA Gymnastics. She had already said that she will not participate in the finals of the uneven bars or vault on Sunday night.
The balance beam is her last possible Tokyo Games event, and U.S.A. Gymnastics indicated she will make a choice shortly.
“In any case, Simone, we’re all behind you,” the group stated in a statement.
Another American, MyKayla Skinner, will replace Biles in the vault final. Jennifer Gadirova of the United Kingdom will take Biles’ place in the floor exercise.
Biles, the most decorated gymnast in history, was supposed to defend her all-around title, but she withdrew from both the all-around and team finals last week due to mental health concerns. She said she was not psychologically prepared to compete and that she was experiencing a typical gymnastics issue of losing her bearings when executing dangerous aerial feats.
After the vault, she left the team final and went to the stands to see her colleague Sunisa Lee win the all-around. Following Carly Patterson in 2004, Nastia Liukin in 2008, Gabby Douglas in 2012, and Simone Biles in 2016, Lee became the sixth American woman to win the event in a row.
Lee’s strongest event, the uneven bars, will have her next opportunity for a medal on Sunday.
TOKYO, JAPAN — Any Olympics’ middle weekend is usually a significant one. Swimming is over, track is starting, and the team events are nearing the knockout rounds. The flood of activities at the Tokyo Olympics seems to have peaked on Sunday.
Marcell Jacobs of Italy is the world’s quickest man. With a time of 9.80 seconds, he won gold in the 100-meter dash. The silver medal went to Fred Kerley of the United States.
In the 50-meter freestyle, Caeleb Dressel of the United States earned his fourth gold medal of the Games. In the women’s 50 free, Emma McKeon of Australia won her third gold medal. Bobby Finke of the United States won a very thrilling 1,500-meter freestyle after coming from behind in the last 50 meters.
The United States had never lost a men’s medley relay in any Olympics, and despite a British push, the Americans won it again in Tokyo, establishing a world record and giving Dressel his fifth gold medal. McKeon became just the second woman to win seven gold in one Olympics when Australia beat the United States in the women’s medley.
In golf, the United States’ Xander Schauffele earned the first gold medal for the country since 1904. (it should be noted that golf was not held at the Games between 1904 and 2016). Rory Sabbatini, a South Africa is a country in Africa. is a country in Africa. is a country in Africa.n who plays for Slovakia, his wife’s home country, came in second.
Rebeca Andrade, the all-around silver medallist, earned gold in the women’s vault in the gymnastics event finals, while MyKayla Skinner of the United States took silver. The uneven bars were won by Nina Derwael of Belgium, with Sunisa Lee of the United States coming in third. The men’s floor exercise was won by Artem Dolgopyat of Israel, while the pommel horse was won by Max Whitlock of the United Kingdom.
The BMX riders raced on Saturday; on Sunday, they performed stunts on their bikes in the freestyle category, which is new to these Games. The women’s competition was won by Charlotte Worthington of the United Kingdom, with Hannah Roberts of the United States coming in second. The men’s event was won by Logan Martin of Australia.
The women’s shot put final was the first track final of the day. Gold went to Gong Lijiao of China, while silver went to Raven Saunders of the United States.
The men’s singles was won by Alexander Zverev of Germany, who beat Karen Khachanov of Russia 6-3, 6-1. Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic is a country in Central Europe. is a country in Central Europe. is a country in Central Europe. is a country in Central Europe. beat Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic and Viktorija Golubic in the women’s doubles. An all-Russian mixed doubles final was won by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Andrey Rublev.
With a victory in his quarterfinal, featherweight Duke Ragan of the United States and super heavyweight Richard Torrez of Mexico both secured medals in men’s boxing. Katherine Nye earned a silver medal, the first for the United States in weightlifting at the Olympics.
In sailing, Australia won the men’s gold and Denmark the women’s gold in the Laser events. In women’s springboard diving, Chinese divers Shi Tingmao and Wang Han finished first and second, respectively, with American Krysta Palmer coming in third.
With a 3-2 win against Kyrgyzstan’s Aiperi Medet Kyzy, Adeline Gray of the United States progressed to the gold medal wrestling final. In men’s team foil fencing, the United States defeated Japan for a second consecutive bronze medal.
In July, a silver first-place medal from the inaugural modern Olympics, held in Athens in 1896 (gold medals were not available at the time), was reported to have sold for $180,111. RR Auction (Credit)
A silver medal in shooting from the 1900 Paris Olympics sold for $1,283 recently.
Then there was the $3,750 bronze medal from the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
On the eve of this year’s Olympics, though, a first-place silver medal from the inaugural modern Olympics in Athens in 1896 demanded six figures – there were no gold medals at the time. According to RR Auction, the Boston-based auction company that handled all three transactions, it sold for $180,111.
Olympic medals are making their way to pawn shops and auction blocks from the podium, where collectors are picking them up like rare coins, comic books, and other sports memorabilia like baseball cards, despite their emotional significance to the athletes who wear them around their necks.
Bobby Livingston, an executive vice president of RR Auction, which negotiated the sale of the three medals and 18 others on July 22, said on Sunday, “It’s a niche collectable.” “There isn’t an oversupply of the ones that have come to market in recent years.”
To win medals, one does not have to be Caeleb Dressel, the American swimmer who won five gold medals in Tokyo.
Throughout the years, many of former Olympians have sold their medals. Some have said that they were driven by financial difficulties, while others have stated that they were motivated by the desire to raise money for charity.
Bill Russell, the Boston Celtics great, will auction off his gold medal from the 1956 Olympics, when he was the captain of the United States basketball team.
Mr. Russell stated in a video on the Hunt Auctions website that he has chosen to sell the majority of his collection, which includes his medal, several of his NBA championship rings, a warm-up jacket, and other memorabilia.
Some of the profits, according to Mr. Russell, will go to MENTOR, a nonprofit he co-founded that supports young mentoring opportunities. A contribution will also be given to the Celtics’ social justice program.

Tokyo and the rest of Japan are witnessing the pandemic’s worst outbreak. Tokyo authorities recorded more than 4,000 new illnesses on Saturday, the city’s daily tally surpassing that number for the first time.
Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said on Friday that the government will extend the state of emergency to four regions outside of Tokyo, and that the capital’s restrictions would be prolonged until the end of August, far after the Olympics have finished and the Paralympic Games have begun.
The extremely infectious Delta form of the virus has taken root in Japan, with just 28% of the population completely vaccinated. According to the health ministry, the variation is now responsible for more than three-quarters of infections in Tokyo.
Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga stated that the government will extend the state of emergency to regions other than Tokyo, and that the capital’s restrictions would be prolonged until the end of August, beyond the Olympics.
