    Diving update

    Before his final bounce off the board, Xie Siyi felt like he was in a movie.

    The scenes of his life flashed before him.

    Then, he pulled off the dive of his life.

    Xie led another 1-2 finish for China in Olympic diving, claiming gold in men's 3-meter springboard Tuesday. Teammate Wang Zongyuan held off Jack Laugher of Britain for the silver.

    Sailing update

    Sailor Giles Scott won a bittersweet gold medal at the Enoshima Yacht Harbour on Tuesday as he continued Britain's dominance in the Finn class, but unfortunately for him and his nation, the category won't be back in 2024.

    Originally included at the Helsinki Games in 1952, Britain has enjoyed two decades of Olympic dominance in the one-person heavyweight dinghy that is set to be replaced by a mixed two-person keel-boat craft at the next Olympics in Paris.

    Zsombor Berecz of Hungary took the silver medal, with Spain's Joan Cardona Mendez collecting the final bronze.

    Cycling track update

    Germany broke the women's team pursuit world record for the second time in two days on Tuesday to set up a blockbuster final against Great Britain for the gold medal at the Izu Velodrome.

    Germany's Franziska Brausse, Lisa Brennauer, Lisa Klein and Mieke Kroeger posted a time of 4min 06.159sec, which was even quicker than the mark of 4:07.307 they set on Monday.

    Britain had briefly reclaimed the record on Tuesday with a blistering time of 4:06.748 but it stood for a matter of minutes before Germany went faster again.

    Basketball update

    Back and forth they went, the reigning Olympic champions from the U.S. on one side, the reigning Basketball World Cup champions from Spain on the other.

    The difference: The Americans had Kevin Durant.

    He’s never gone to the Olympics and not won gold — and clearly, doesn’t plan on that changing. Durant scored 29 points to keep his quest for a third Olympic title alive, and the Americans are headed to the medal round after ousting Spain 95-81 on Tuesday in a quarterfinal matchup at the Tokyo Games.

    Jayson Tatum scored 13 and Jrue Holiday added 12 for the U.S., which will play either Australia or Argentina in the semifinals on Thursday. The Americans also gave themselves the chance of extending a streak like none other in Olympic basketball history — in all 18 of their previous Olympic men’s basketball appearances, they’ve gone home with a medal.

    Latest-Warholm dazzles in 400m hurdles as Biles makes dramatic Olympic return

    Karsten Warholm smashed his own world record as he streaked to victory in the Olympic 400m hurdles on Tuesday while Simone Biles prepared for a dramatic return to action after a Games dogged by mental health struggles.

    Norway's Warholm lit up the Olympic Stadium in the final event of the morning session, clocking a remarkable 45.94 seconds to destroy his previous world best by nearly 0.8sec.

    The 25-year-old dominated the race, with long-time rival Rai Benjamin taking silver and Brazil's Alison dos Santos claiming bronze.

    Warholm roared in apparent disbelief as he spotted his winning time, dropping to his knees.

    "Man it's so crazy, said the Norwegian, already a two-time world champion. "It's by far the biggest moment of my life. It defines everything, all the hours I put in, everything that my coach has been working for.

    "I dream about it like a maniac, I tell you. I sleep all night on it. I spend all my time thinking about this, so just getting this last medal into my collection, it's complete."
