The game was suspended with Canada leading 1-0.  BEIJING (AP) - Shocking news from the pool on the seventh day of the Olympics in Beijing: Michael Phelps finished second in something!  On the first day he wasn't chasing gold, Phelps won his semifinal heat, then saw teammate and top foe Ryan Lochte go 0.01 second faster in his.  American Jason Lezak, the anchor-leg star of Phelps' dramatic 400 free relay gold, added a bronze to his collection in the 100 free. Katie Hoff, Natalie Coughlin and their U.S.  The swimmers weren't the only ones to get soaked Thursday as drenching rain returned to Beijing.  Beach volleyball, archery and shooting were among those to play through it.

Os pais do campeão olímpico de taekwondo Steven López são imigrantes nicaragüenses que sonhavam com melhores oportunidades econômicas. Outros, como o atleta Lopez Lomong, deixaram um campo de refugiados no Sudão para ganhar a vida nos EUA.Um exemplo ilustrativo da profusão de cores e nações da sociedade norte-americana atual está no prova dos 1500 m.Lagat, Lopez Lomong e o mexicano Leonel Manzano, os três representantes 'ianques'...

Carly%2520PattersonThe U.S. women's gymnastics team, including Parker's Nastia Liukin, is in California today getting ready to depart tomorrow for Beijing.  Liukin has a special understanding as to what an all-around gold can mean. One of her best friends won it four years ago.  She witnessed Patterson, her former WOGA teammate, experience the hugeness and whirlwind of it all. They're still close now as Liukin attempts to become WOGA's second-straight Olympic gold medalist.  Later that month, Patterson attended the Olympic trials in Philadelphia, giving Liukin a thumbs up before the competition.  We've always been close, but this last year she's really been there for me," Liukin said.  But it's not like all they talk about is gymnastics.  Thanks!  Good luck Nastia!  Comments limited to 30 words or less are preferred.

Because you can't get enough gymnastics...  China tops U.S.  BEIJING-The most memorable image of Nastia Liukin from Sunday's qualifying round at the Beijing Olympics will be the Parker gymnast falling flat on her back after her somersaulting dismount from her signature event, the uneven bars.  After I fell, I was sitting there like 'what am I doing on the floor?'" Liukin said. "'I'm not supposed to be here.' ...  True, rival and host China topped the U.S. in qualifying 248.275 to 246.8.  But the nations competed in different subdivisions, not head-to-head, and the numbers will be thrown out moving forward.  Two Americans finished atop the all-around standings. Iowan Shawn Johnson, the reigning world all-around champion, and Liukin were 1-2. Just like usual, no matter that this is the Olympics.  In addition to team finals, where the U.S. will try to win Olympic team gold on foreign soil for the first time, Liukin qualified for the all-around finals and individual finals on  balance beam...

Her son was dying, she had no insurance, so she couldn't stop.  Gymnastics once saved Oksana Chusovitina.  If I don't compete, then my son won't live," Chusovitina said shortly after her son Alisher was diagnosed with cancer before his third birthday.

oly_a_liukin_195JsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?  The Olympic flame finishes its long journey to the opening ceremony of the Beijing Games on Friday, marking the start of 16 days of competition involving thousands of athletes. With all the action, keeping track of what to watch for can be tough. This guide provides a brief summary of each major sport.___ARCHERY:The men's and women's individual archery tournaments are single-elimination, with 64 archers each. If anyone is planning on starting an office pool, here is some friendly advice: South Korea is the dominant nation in Olympic archery. That's not to say nobody else has a chance. Italy's Marco Galiazzo is back after winning gold in 2004, and countrywoman Natalia Valeeva also figures to contend. The top American hopeful is probably Jennifer Nichols, and here's an added bonus for those who enjoy political intrigue. Taiwan has one of the world's top men's teams. The target includes 10 rings, each with a score between 1 and 10. Dur...
