Day Withdraws

Golf back in the Olympics after 112 years, but for how long?

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — For the longest time, golf's biggest headache in preparing for a return to the Olympics was getting a new course built in Rio de Janeiro.

That seems like a nuisance compared with its next major hurdle.

Who's going to play?

Ten eligible players over the last two months have pulled out of the Olympics, six of the specifically citing concerns about the Zika virus. The last week alone was particularly devastating to a sport wanting to make a good impression after being gone from the games for 112 years.

Ryan Lochte

Franklin, Lochte struggle against rising stars at US trials

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — One by one, some of America's biggest swimming stars are going down at the Olympic trials.

First, Ryan Lochte. Then, Missy Franklin.

Lochte, an 11-time Olympic medalist but slowed by a groin injury, missed out on his second chance to make the team in an individual event with a fourth-place finish in the 200-meter freestyle. There was some consolation: Lochte at least clinched a spot in the 4x200 relay, so he'll be in Rio.
