Now that Swimming is over at Rio 2016, there are significantly fewer active Calympians on a daily basis. Nevertheless, there are still a few strong contenders in team competitions for Golden Bears to pick up additional medals here and there.
All time listed are in PT.
Calympic Medal at Stake
Byeong-Hun (Ben) An (South Korea) is right at the peripheral of contention heading into the final round on Sunday.
An finishes at -6, which puts him in a tie for 11. The Gold went to Justin Rose (Great Britain) at -16. Henrik Stenson (Sweden) won Silver with -14. Matt Kucher (USA) took Bronze with -13.
Through 3 rounds, An is at -3 (Tie for 14th), 6 shots out of Bronze and 9 shots out of Gold.
Other Calympians in action:
Carli Lloyd and USA Women’s indoor volleyball vs. China - USA defeated China in 4 sets
USA will play Japan in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night at 6:15 PM
It’s the last group match for the undefeated USA before the quarterfinals on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, Montenegro’s draw with Spain before the USA game allow them to clinch the last berth to the knockout round. Cupido scored a goal against his native country.
USA men’s water polo (1-2) desperately need a win in their final group match to keep the hope of making it to the quarterfinals round alive.
