The men’s four failed to win a medal in an event they have dominated this century.
Jerry Tuwai’s Fijians are within one victory of back-to-back Olympic gold medals in a sport that is intrinsically part of life in their Pacific island nation. Trying to stop them will be a New Zealand team already assured of winning its first men’s rugby sevens medal of any kind. Fiji beat Argentina 26-14 in the semifinals on Wednesday to set up a night final against a New Zealand lineup that overpowered 2016 silver medalist Britain 29-7 with captain Scott Curry and Regan Ware scoring two tries apiece.

Trea Turner singled in the first inning and scored on Josh Bell's three-run homer that put the Washington Nationals ahead to stay, but their shortstop was then pulled from the game because of a positive COVID-19 test and never played defense in a 6-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Juan Soto hit another three-run homer for the Nationals in the second. After Turner got his one-out hit, he moved to third on a single by Soto before Bell hit his 16th homer.

The Justice Department declined a request from Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., Tuesday night to intervene for him in a lawsuit brought by a Democratic lawmaker suing him for his role in allegedly inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. In a new filing, the DOJ said it has determined it does not believe Brooks was acting within the scope of the duties of his office when he spoke in front of a pro-Trump rally just before rioters stormed the building, telling the crowd, "today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking a**." Brooks had asked for the Justice Department to replace him as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., providing him legal immunity under a law known as the Westfall Act that former President Donald Trump similarly has sought to use to shield him from an effort by columnist E. Jean Carroll to sue him for defamation over his denial of her rape allegation.

A two-decade long dynasty came to an end at the Tokyo Olympics as Britain’s men’s coxless four failed to win gold for the first time since 1996. In the event they have habitually dominated for five Olympic Games, Ollie Cook, Matt Rossiter, Rory Gibbs and Sholto Carnegie completely fell apart in the dying moments of the race. It marked a sorry end to a remarkable hegemony under the tutelage of the revered coach Jurgen Grobler, who departed the GB set-up in the long build-up to Tokyo and into retirement.
