At the Games Friday

Men's soccer

Argentina successfully defended its men's Olympic soccer championship on Angel di Maria's second-half score to beat Nigeria 1-0 in the gold medal match early this morning.

Cycling

The U.S. was hoping for a little better showing in the BMX event but will have to settle for one silver and two bronze medals. On the men's side, Maris Strombergs of Latvia finished just ahead of U.S. teammates Mike Day and Donny Robinson. Anne-Caroline Chausson of France won the women's gold. The bronze went to Jill Kintner of the U.S.

Water polo

A very good day for the U.S. men's team, as it easily beat Serbia, 10-5, to find itself in the gold-medal game on Sunday against Hungary. Tony Azevedo led the U.S. with three goals. It's the first time since 1988 that the U.S. is in a position to win gold.

Men's volleyball

Ryan Millar logged 12 kills and two blocks and Rich Lambourne added seven digs as the United States jumped out to a two-set lead and then held on for a five-set semifinal victory over Russia, 25-22, 25-21, 25-27, 22-25, 15-13. The win assures the Americans of their first men's volleyball medal since 1992.

Women's volleyball

Logan Tom and the United States take on Brazil in the gold-medal match, with the Americans guaranteed at least a silver — their first medal since a bronze in 1992. But what they'd really like is their first-ever gold.
