  • Moving indoors, the men’s volleyball squad has moved into the gold medal match after defeating Russia in 5 close sets – next up, Brazil
  • The U.S. baseball team will have to settle for a chance at bronze – Cuba won 10-2 to advance to the final against Korea
  • Improbable U.S. men will meet defending gold-medalists Hungary in water polo after a 10-5 victory over Serbia
  • American Bryan Clay now holds gold in the decathlon
  • Argentina fell to the Redeem Team 101-81 – the Finals will see the U.S. team play Spain, a team they easily crushed in prelim play
