Simone Biles Clinches Her Fourth Gold
She came, she saw, she slew. The Texan took top honors on the floor exercise Tuesday, netting her fourth Rio gold — tied for the most any gymnast has won in one Games. American Kerri Walsh Jennings’ own quest for four consecutive golds was denied when she and April Ross fell to a Brazilian duo in the beach volleyball semifinal. On the track, American runner Abbey D’Agostino showed Olympic spirit by helping New Zealander Nikki Hamblin up after both fell during the 5,000-meter semis. Despite bad finishes, both will run in Friday’s final.
