Despite Scares The USA Soldiers On!
There were several scares recently, with the US women's soccer team beating Canada 4-3 in overtime.
Men's basketball has kept us on the edge of our seats too, though they tend to pull it out at the end like when they beat Argentina 126-97.
Lolo Jones won her preliminary hurdle heat, so hopefully she can continue that through the finals.
Sanya Richards-Ross had the fastest qualifying time for the 200-meter semifinals, so she should be doing well too.
Speaking of running, American Michael Tinsley won silver in the 400-meter hurdles!
Jenn Suhr, American pole vaulter, won gold over the two-time defending champion!
Sadly, Gabby Douglas finished dead last in the uneven bars final. It's not that she messed up but that the top three girls did much harder routines than she did.
We also grabbed up a shooting medal with Matthew Emmons winning bronze in the 50-meter rifle three positions.
So lots of Team USA athletes are making us proud! Keep it up guys! Your country is counting on you!
