1. Gabby Douglas’ beam routine was arguably her most impressive segment of the day.
2. Here are the reactions to Russia’s Viktoria Komova’s floor routine results. She needed a 15.36 to take the gold and leave American Gabby Douglas with silver.
With Douglas’ win, she becomes the first black woman to take gold in the all-around competition as well as the first American woman to win gold in both the team and individual all-around competitions. Raisman finished fourth because even though her overall score was tied with Mustafina’s, her execution score was lower.
3. Here’s the medal awards ceremony:
- The Clinton campaign is trying to stop television stations from running a pro-Trump ad featuring Michelle Obama.
- A federal jury cleared the leaders of an Oregon standoff. The militia group took over a wildlife refuge last January.
- Countries from around the world have agreed that the Ross Sea in Antarctica will become the world's largest marine protected area.
- RIP — Vine says it's discontinuing its mobile app, effectively ending the 6-second video service 💀
