    TOKYO — Canada's Andre De Grasse cruised into the semifinals of the men's 100 metres, winning his heat in a season-best time of 9.91 seconds. Wearing sunglasses and looking relaxed in the blocks, the 26-year-old from Markham, Ont., turned on the jets over the final 50 metres to book his spot in the next round. The sprinters had to overcome a nervy start to the race after two false starts, the second of which led to the disqualification of Nigeria's Divine Oduduru. Gavin Smellie of Brampton, Ont.

    TOKYO — Thirty minutes after her failed final dive, Pamela Ware was still in shock.

    TOKYO (AP) — Age isn't weighing Lyu Xiaojun down. The 37-year-old Chinese weightlifter became the oldest man to win an Olympic gold medal in the sport on Saturday after a tense finish in the men's 81-kilogram category.

    Even with no fans, penalty pressure causes best to miss

    TOKYO (AP) — Just what is it about penalties that even the most prolific of scorers, like Netherlands striker Vivianne Miedema, cannot get the ball in the net? A blunt expletive was her agonizing initial response through the raw pain minutes after the Olympic quarterfinal shootout loss to the United States on Friday. “I’m just gutted to be honest,” Miedema said, gathering her thoughts despite having scored 10 goals in this year's Olympic soccer tournament. “It doesn’t help me whatsoever. It does

    Trying Olympic year ends in disappointment for Simone Manuel

    TOKYO (AP) — A most trying Olympic year for Simone Manuel came to a disappointing end. The American sprinter failed to advance to the 50-meter freestyle final in Tokyo. She finished tied for 11th in the semifinals on Saturday. The top eight made Sunday’s final. “It’s hard to work so hard for something and not see the results pay off,” she said. “The swim I had was my best today, but it’s not representative of my potential.” The chaotic single-lap race was Manuel's only individual event in Tokyo,

    Perfectly Impossible; Gymnasts wrestle with the imperfect

    TOKYO (AP) — Sunisa Lee's gymnastics are stunning. They're just not “perfect.” Not technically, anyway. Thousands of hours of practice. Dozens upon dozens of competitions. And not once has a judge watched the new Olympic all-around champion do her thing — not even on uneven bars, where the 45-second set she plans doing in Sunday's event finals is a free-flowing series of connections and releases that make it seem as if she is floating — and thought “that's flawless.” Lee is not alone. No elite g

    YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Now an Olympian representing the country, Ian Kinsler traveled to Israel for the first time last year with his wife Tess, just before the coronavirus pandemic became widespread. “I think we were on one of the last flights to leave Tel Aviv, to come back to Newark,” he said. “We want to get our kids over there. I know my dad wants to go. So we definitely want to get back soon.” A four-time big league All-Star, the 39-year-old Kinsler is playing for Israel's baseball team in

    Croatia beats Serbia 14-12 in rematch of Rio final

    TOKYO (AP) — Marko Bijac is playing in his second Olympics with Croatia's water polo team, so the goalkeeper wasn't about to make too much of the team's victory over Serbia. Or any part of group play, really. “We need to be focused on our game and try to play each game better than the last one,” Bijac said. “That's the only right way that we need to think.” Croatia did just that in a matchup of past two Olympic champions, outslugging Serbia 14-12 behind four-goal performances by Maro Jokovic and
