On Monday, U.S.A. women’s soccer beat Canada in a come-from-behind thriller with a goal in the last minute of extra time. Gabby Douglas was up against a tough field, and didn’t medal on the uneven bars (she came in last). And the U.S.A.’s Jennifer Suhr won the women’s pole vault gold. That brings us to day 11.
So let’s get to it: Here’s what to catch tonight!
