Chinas Xu Jiayu surged to the silver in 52.31, while another American, David Plummer, stretched for the bronze in 52.40 -- just three-hundredths of a second ahead of a fading Larkin.It was quite a moment for Plummer, who finally made his first Olympic team at age 30.

He built a body-length lead over the entire field and tried to hang on. It nearly worked.But Yang surged to the front, and Le Clos took silver in 1:45.20.Dwyer claimed the bronze in 1:45.23.---11:05 p.m.MEDAL ALERT: Lilly King of the United States has won gold in the womens 100-meter breaststroke at the Rio Olympics.

After he and Serbian teammate Nenad Zimonjic fell 6-4, 6-4 to third-seeded Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares in the second round, Djokovic confirmed that he wont play mixed doubles.The worlds top-ranked player is still seeking his first Olympic gold. Hell be 33 at the 2020 Games, and he said Monday that I really hope I will have another shot at the medal.Djokovic left the court in tears Sunday night after losing to a resurgent del Potro, whose ranking has fallen to 145th after three left wrist surgeries.Djokovics only Olympic medal is a bronze in 2008 in singles.---10:45 p.m.MEDAL ALERT: Ryan Murphy of the United States has won gold in the mens 100-meter backstroke at the Rio Olympics.---10:35 p.m.MEDAL ALERT: Katinka Hosszu of Hungary has won the gold medal in the womens 100-meter backstroke, her second gold medal of the Rio Olympics.

But shes endured a mystifying loss of form since turning pro last summer, struggling just to qualify for two individual events and a relay at the U.S. trials.In 2012, Franklin competed in seven Olympic events. Now, all shes got left is the 200 backstroke and a likely spot on the 4x200 free relay team.---10:15 p.m.FAILED TO QUALIFY: Missy Franklin has failed to qualify for the final of the womens 200-meter freestyle at the Rio Olympics.---10:05 p.m.Australian cyclist Melissa Hoskins was released from the hospital hours after a terrifying crash in training, and she still hopes to compete in the team pursuit competition later this week.The team of Hoskins, Ashlee Ankudinoff, Georgia Baker, Amy Cure and Annette Edmondson were at race speed of nearly 60 kph (37 mph) when they clipped wheels Monday at the end of the back straight.

During that troublesome stretch, Williams reacted to losing two games in a row by mangling her equipment, slamming it against the back of her sideline chair.Later, she was forced to erase a pair of set points for Cornet, who had won four of their previous seven matchups.But Williams claimed the last three points of the tiebreaker, raced to a 3-0 lead in the second set and was on her way.No tennis player ever has won two Olympic singles golds -- let alone two in a row.---8:45 p.m.Theres another Savon in the boxing tournament with the hope of fighting for Olympic gold.Erislandy Savon, the nephew of three-time Olympic gold medalist Felix Savon, opened with a unanimous decision victory in a heavyweight bout.Felix Savon won gold medals in 1992, 1996 and 2000, one of only three fighters to accomplish the feat.

In an email, judos governing body said that if there were to be sanctions leveled against Kelmendi -- who won her countrys first ever Olympic medal on Sunday -- they would only apply in France.The Kosovo Olympic team could not immediately be reached for comment.---7:35 p.m.MEDAL ALERT: Australia has won the first gold medal for rugby sevens at the Olympics, beating archrival New Zealand 24-17 in the womens final Monday night.The womens world series champions conceded an early try to Kayla McAlister but rallied with two tries before halftime and another two after the break to take a 24-5 lead.Emma Tonegatos early equalizer for Australia was contentious after she appeared to fumble as she crashed over in the corner but referee Alhambra Nievas awarded it after checking with both assistant referees.Evania Pelite scored in the corner on the stroke of halftime, moments after New Zealand star Portia Woodman was sin-binned for a deliberate knock-on.Ellia Green and Charlotte Caslick scored for the Australians before New Zealand cut the margin with late tries from McAlister and Woodman.Ghislaine Landry led Canada to the bronze medal, scoring two tries and landing four conversions in a 33-10 win over Britain.---7:30 p.m.Japan is off to its best start in womens basketball in 20 years after routing host Brazil 82-66 Monday night for a second straight victory.The Japanese didnt qualify in 2008 or 2012 and won only once in 2004. Now they are a win from matching their three victories in Atlanta when Japan went 3-5 and finished seventh.Japan led 47-33 at halftime. The Japanese built that lead to as much as 27 in the third before Brazil went on a 12-4 run to get within 66-47, giving the home fans a reason to roar and stomp their feet. Mika Kurihara ended the run with her 3 with 1:15 left in the quarter.Brazil never got closer than 16 the rest of the way, though fans stuck around and cheered to the final seconds.Ramu Tokashiki, who plays for the WNBAs Seattle Storm, led Japan with 23.---7:20 p.m.Beach volleyball has been one of the top tickets at the Olympics, but the venue at Copacabana beach has been sprinkled liberally with empty seats.With four matches per session, fans are apparently coming to see their favorite team and then leaving. Never was that more clear than Monday, following Brazils three-set loss to Austria. With fans streaming out of the 12,000-seat venue, the public address announcer invited those staying behind to move down to better seats.Another problem has been the late matches. Saturdays match featuring defending champion Kerri Walsh Jennings and her partner April Ross began at 12:34 a.m. Sunday morning. The times are set to draw maximum viewership in the United States, but the empty white seats look bad on TV.A day after getting stuck for 40 minutes in an athletes village elevator before upsetting No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the Rio de Janeiro Games tournaments first round, del Potro was back on court Monday and produced a 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 victory over Portugals Joao Sousa with the help of 16 forehand winners.That match started 15 1/2 hours after del Potro finished beating Djokovic in straight sets Sunday night. Earlier that day, the 6-foot-6 Argentine found himself trapped while trying to get from one floor to another -- until getting rescued by countrymen competing in handball in Brazil.Asked if he took an elevator before facing Sousa, del Potro replied with a laugh: Not today.---AP Summer Games website: Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys. - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Pettersen, winner of last years Evian Championships, had nine birdies and three bogeys, holding off a series of challengers led by Marion Ricordeau of France. The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- In recent months, Colin Kaepernick has become comfortable with people getting to know him as more than a laser-focused football player the way he had always preferred it.He sparked a nationwide debate with his anthem protest and emerged as an outspoken activist for minorities, and Kaepernick has seemingly improved his image in the process. This might even be where he leaves his legacy, off the field and not as a strong-armed quarterback and dual threat with his speedy legs -- though Kaepernick certainly hopes to return to the dynamic playmaker he once was. And soon.Yeah, I think people know a little bit more about me, Kaepernick said Tuesday. Ive been a little bit more open with where I stand and my views. For me, theres nothing to hide, theres nothing that Im afraid to say about my opinion and my stance and what I believe in, because I know why I believe those things and I have knowledge to back that up.He just took his message a step further to reach underprivileged youth. Kaepernick hosted a Know Your Rights camp in Oakland for more than 100 kids Saturday, when his San Francisco 49ers (1-6) were on their bye week. They came from organizations throughout the Bay Area.Its exciting to see the youth that have that strength, have that courage, have that intelligence to say, `Our situation might not be the best, might not be ideal but we can succeed through it regardless, he said. ... There were a lot of different topics that we covered, a lot of different areas that we wanted to share with them. Ultimately, they have the right to be great. They have the right for their freedom. They have the right to be treated as human beings.Kaepernick was benched last November by former coach Jim Tomsula in favor of Blaine Gabbert. The 2011 second-round pick, less heralded than other QBs in his draft class, went on season-ending injured reserve and needed a trio of surgeries: his non-throwing left shoulder, left knee and right thumb. He hardly disappeared as a backup, instead taking his old job back last month.And he made international headlines when he stopped standing for the national anthem in what he said was a protest against racial oppression. First he sat, then he kneeled. Others joined him.As his team struggles, the 28-year-old Kaepernick appears as collected as any losing quarterback in the league. This is the same guy who led San Francisco to a runner-up Super Bowl finish following the 2012 season.Hes definitely been tested, going through his surgeries, losing the starting job,, battling through rehab, 49ers safety Antoine Bethea said.dddddddddddd. All the things hes been doing, I think hes really grown. From the outside looking in, not getting too personal, I think hes come to a place where hes very comfortable within himself. At the end of the day, thats what its all about.From the NBA and WNBA to high school sports, college football and the U.S. womens national soccer team to college basketball, Kaepernicks stance has become a major talking point.Coaches are speaking about it to their players, bosses or athletic directors. The Golden State Warriors are trying to improve communication with civic leaders in diverse downtown Oakland.Kaepernicks reputation within his team might be better than ever, too.Its not an image thing. What does the typical quarterback look like? Thats the main question, wide receiver Quinton Patton said. People try to put him in this quarterback category or that quarterback category, but what is a typical quarterback category? Why judge a person or look at him a different kind of way just because hes different. God made everybody different, right? So everybody cant be the same.Kaepernick, his girlfriend and some others developed the curriculum for the camp, which dealt with everything from cultural and social challenges to college options and preparation.Its an event we wanted to put on to help give them the opportunity to succeed, give them some resources, some knowledge that can help progress them, help them understand the current state of things as well as how to handle different situations and how to succeed in different situations, Kaepernick said. We wanted to make sure it was something that was very grassroots, that was true to what we believed and the message wasnt skewed or misrepresented or manipulated by a corporation that we had to stand behind.Game notes WR Torrey Smith knew the Niners were shopping him before the trade deadline, noting the selfish side of you, you think sometimes a change of scenery would be a good thing but I know Im very committed to everybody in this locker room and playing well. ... RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) returned to practice, wearing a blue non-contact jersey. He missed the teams 34-17 loss to Tampa Bay on Oct. 23. ...
