Rio Recap: Day Seven

MWhew! A week into the Olympics and the U.S. is still crushing things and has a comfortable lead in the medal standings. Here’s what happened on Friday:

Kim Rhode became the first female Olympian to medal in an event for six straight Olympics and the first Summer Olympian to accomplish this feat. She earned the bronze medal in skeet shooting. Rhode previously won gold in the 1996 and 2004 games and bronze in 2000 in double trap, silver in 2008 in skeet, and gold in 2012 in skeet.

Anthony Ervin was the 2000 Olympic champion in the 50m freestyle–and last night he managed to regain his title by out-touching Florent Manaudou of France and fellow American Nathan Adrian. Ervin, at age 35, is now the oldest individual gold medalist in men’s swimming. Ervin also won gold in the 4×100 freestyle relay.
