Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, watch as U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps competes in the men's 200-meter freestyle semi-finals at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing on Sunday. They were sitting one row below President Bush and his family.


Ana Ivanovic gave away her No. 1 seed at the Olympics, withdrawing because of inflammation in her right thumb that has bothered her for several weeks. Her decision was announced after play was called for the day with only nine of 45 scheduled matches completed.


Americans went 1-1 in the ring, with Demetrius Andrade beating Georgia's Kakhaber Juania 11-9 and Javier Molina getting clobbered 14-1 by Bulgaria's Boris Georgiev.


David Kostelecky of the Czech Republic hit all 25 trapshooting targets to take gold. Giovanni Pellielo of Italy won the silver, and Alexey Alipov of Russia won a shoot-off for bronze. World record-holder Karsten Bindrich of Germany was seventh. Bret Erickson, the top American, finished 22nd.


Men's basketball

Andrei Kirilenko scored 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting — including one 3-pointer — and 4-of-5 from the line, with the Utah Jazz forward adding five rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal in Russia's 71-49 rout of Iran in Sunday's preliminary-pool opener for both teams.

• Former Jazz guard Raul Lopez saw four minutes of playing time and missed his only FG attempt in Spain's 81-66 victory over Greece.

• Former U. standout Andrew Bogut made all of his shots — but only took three — and added a rebound and two assists in Australia's 97-82 loss to Croatia.

Deron Williams scored nine points and Carlos Boozer added five points in the United States' 101-70 victory over host China in the late-night Olympic opener for both teams.

Men's volleyball

• Former BYU teammates Ryan Millar (middle blocker) and Rich Lambourne (libero) played in all five sets of the United States' 25-18, 25-18, 22-25, 21-25, 15-10 victory over Venezuela. Millar finished with nine kills, three blocks and a service ace for the Americans, while Lambourne led the U.S. with nine digs and 33 service receptions.

• In the same USA-Venezuela match, BYU's Joel Silva played all five sets as the Venezuelan libero, posting a half-dozen digs and 16 service receptions.

Cyclist sent home

In the first official doping case of the Beijing Olympics, Spanish cyclist Maria Isabel Moreno was kicked out of the games Monday after testing positive for EPO.

Moreno, who was due to compete in the women's individual time trial, was tested in the athletes' village on July 31 and left China later the same day before learning the result, the International Olympic Committee said.

IOC spokeswoman Giselle Davies said Moreno's sample came back positive for EPO, a blood-boosting hormone that enhances endurance and has been at the center of numerous doping scandals in cycling in recent years.

The 27-year-old Moreno is the first athlete caught under the IOC's Beijing drug-testing program, which began with the opening of the Olympic village on July 27 and runs through the end of the games on Aug. 24.

Record performance

Kosuke Kitajima of Japan has defended his 100-meter breaststroke title at the Beijing Olympics, smashing the world record by 0.22 seconds. Kitajima rallied from third after 50 meters to win in 58.91 seconds Monday, bettering the old mark of 59.13 set by American Brendan Hansen two years ago. Alexander Dale Oen of Norway took the silver in 59.20. Hugues Dugoscq of France earned the bronze in 59.37. Hansen was second halfway through the race, but faded to fourth. Six of the eight finalists swam under 1 minute.
