RIO DE JANEIRO — The first gold medal handed out at the Rio Olympics has gone to an American.  19-year-old shooter Virginia Thrasher won the women’s 10-meter air rifle, finishing a point ahead of two-time gold medalist Li Du of China.

In other competition:

— The U.S. men’s basketball team opened its quest for a third straight gold medal by ripping China 119-62. Kevin Durant scored 25 points and Demarcus Cousins added 17 in the Americans’ 69th consecutive victory. Durant made three 3-pointers while the U.S. was building a 29-point halftime lead.

— It was a bad start for 5th-ranked Venus Williams in Rio as she lost her opening match to 62nd-ranked Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. Competing in her record fifth Olympics, Williams was a 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 loser after holding a 4-1 lead in the third set.

— American Chase Kalisz finished second to Kosuke Hagino of Japan in the men’s 400-meter individual medley final. Hagino is the first non-American since 1992 to win the event.

— Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu sets a world record in winning the women’s 400-meter individual medley. American Maya DiRado took the silver.

— Australia set a world record to capture the gold medal in the women’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay. The United States had to settle for second after Cate Campbell pulled away from Katie Ledecky during the final leg.

— Carli Lloyd’s goal backed the solid netminding of Hope Solo as the United States topped France 1-0 in women’s soccer. Solo earned the shutout in her 200th game with the US team, making her the first goalkeeper in history to reach that milestone in international play.

— South Korea was nearly flawless in beating the United States in the men’s team archery final, scoring in the 10 range on 15 of its 18 arrows to earn a 6-0 win. South Korea has now captured five of the eight Olympic gold medals in the men’s team event. The U.S. took home silver for a second straight Olympics.

— U.S. boxers were 2-for-2 as light flyweight Nico Hernandez won a unanimous decision over two-time Olympian Manuel Cappai after lightweight Carlos Balderas won his bout.

— The top-ranked U.S. women volleyball team looked sharp in an opening 25-17, 25-22, 25-17 win over Puerto Rico.

— The United States claimed one of the biggest wins in its Olympic women’s field hockey history, defeating No. 2 Argentina 2-1. The Americans haven’t medaled since they claimed bronze in Los Angeles 32 years ago.

— Led by four-time national champion Sam Mikulak, the U.S. men’s gymnastics team has the lead in preliminary qualifying. The Americans posted a score of 270.405 to move ahead of reigning world champion Japan, which had 269.294 points.

— U.S. tennis player Jack Sock lost his opening match to Japan’s Taro Daniel 6-4, 6-4. The 14th-seeded Sock says he was diagnosed with walking pneumonia just before leaving for Rio.

— The U.S. women’s Rugby team routed Columbia 48-0 after losing its opening match 12-7 to Fiji.


RIO DE JANEIRO — A small blast shook the area near the finish line of the men’s cycling road race at the Olympics. No one was injured, and the event went on unaffected.

An officer assigned to the event says it was a controlled explosion of an unattended bag. He did not give his name because he was not authorized to speak.


RIO DE JANIERO — Rio Games organizers have apologized to the spectators enduring long lines to access the Olympic Park on the first full day of competition.  Organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada acknowledged a need to upgrade the systems and have asked authorities to speed up bag checks. Andrada also said organizers would check if drivers had sufficient training after reports of official buses getting lost.

RIO DE JANIERO – The U.S. picked up its first individual swimming gold medal of the Rio Olympics on Sunday. Fittingly, it was Katie Ledecky doing it in world record time.  Ledecky posted an easy victory in the women’s 400 free, finishing in 3 minutes, 56.46 seconds. The 19-year-old from Maryland crushed the mark of 3:58.37 that she set nearly two years ago. She finished almost five seconds ahead of her nearest opponent.  Ledecky has dominated the longer freestyle events since winning gold in the 800 free at the London Olympics as a 15-year-old.

Ledecky’s performance was followed by Michael Phelps’ 19th Olympic gold medal. Phelps was part of the American 4×100 relay team that beat France.  Ryan Held, Phelps, Caeleb Dressel and Nathan Adrian finished in 3 minutes, 9.92 seconds, more than a half-second ahead of the French team.

Also in the pool, Cody Miller of the U.S. took bronze in the men’s 100 breaststroke. Britain’s Adam Peaty won the event in world record time.

Dana Vollmer captured bronze in the women’s 100 butterfly, 17 months after having her first child.

In other results:
– Led by three-time world champion Simone Biles, the U.S. women’s gymnastics team breezed to the top of the leaderboard in preliminaries. Their total score of 185.238 was nearly 10 better than second-place China through four subdivisions. Biles’ all-around total of 62.366 was more than two points clear of teammate Aly Raisman.

– The five-time defending-champion U.S. women’s basketball opened its Olympic schedule with a 121-56 blowout over Senegal. Diane Taurasi led the way with 15 points in the largest team offensive output in U.S. team history. The Americans’ 42nd straight Olympic win also set marks for the largest margin of victory and assists with 36.

– Top-ranked American Alexander Massialas was upset in the men’s foil fencing final by Italy’s Daniele Garozzo 15-11. Massialas settled for silver after attempting to become the first American man to win at the Olympics in the modern version of the sport. He becomes the first individual Olympic medalist the U.S. has produced in men’s fencing since 1984.

– Shooter Corey Cogdell-Unrein has delivered a bronze medal for the United States in women’s trap. The 2008 bronze medalist topped Spain’s Fatima Galvez in a shoot-out. Cogdell-Unrein lost her semifinal match in a shootout.

– The United States men’s 4×100 meter relay team posted the second-fastest time of the preliminaries and will be a gold medal threat in tonight’s final. Eighteen-time gold medalist Michael Phelps is expected to be part of the relay team in the final.

– Serena Williams won her singles match and dropped her doubles match with her sister, Venus. Serena Williams opened her Olympic schedule with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Australia’s Daria Gavrilova. But the Williams sisters were 6-3, 6-4 losers to Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova after entering the tournament with a 15-0 record in Olympic competition.

– Top-ranked Novak Djokovic lost his first-round match to 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, 7-6, 7-6.

– The American tandem of Lauren Fendrick and Brooke Sweat lost their opening beach volleyball match in three sets to a duo from Poland, marking the first loss by a U.S. women’s team in Olympics beach volleyball play.

– The U.S. men’s volleyball team got off to a rough start by losing to Canada 25-23, 25-17, 25-23.

– The Americans now have three gold medals and 12 overall. They lead the overall medal count and are tied with China and Australia for the most gold medals.

NEW YORK – Alex Rodriguez will end his major league career during Friday’s game between his New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays. The 41-year-old Rodriguez has struggled this season, hitting just .204 with nine homers and 29 RBIs. The three-time American League MVP and a 14-time All-Star hit 696 home runs during a career pockmarked by admitted steroid use and other allegations of performance-enhancing drugs.
