Felix sprints to silver; Rodriguez kicks for gold

Allyson Felix, the 2007 world champion in the 200-meter event, ran to a silver medal on Thursday in a time of 21.93. Felix’s time was sandwiched between two Jamaicans, Veronica Campbell-Brown who won gold, and Kerron Stewart who won silver. The Jamaicans continue to display their track and field dominance, now combining with Jamaican men to win all 4 sprint events in Beijing.

Amy Rodriguez goes from NCAA champion to Olympic champion in women’s soccer. The U.S. women’s soccer team defeated Brazil 1-0 in an overtime period to win the gold medal for the third time in four Olympics. With women’s water polo and softball being upset in gold medal rounds on Thursday, the soccer team denied the triplet.

Rodriguez and her Lady Trojans are the defending NCAA soccer champions.
