Olympics Schedule for Wednesday Includes All-U.S. Beach Volleyball Final as Misty May-Treanor, Kerri Walsh Jennings Go for Gold


Tuesday was a day for women’s gymnastics, especially Aly Raisman.

The Needham, Mass., native’s gold medal-winning routine on the floor exercise and bronze medal on the balance beam was the perfect way to end her first Olympics.

The U.S. track team also did well, taking silver and bronze in the 100-meter hurdles, although Lolo Jones failed to medal in the long-anticipated event.

Going into Wednesday’s events, China has 73 medals, 34 of them gold. The United States is right behind with 71 total medals, 30 of them gold.
