Olympic Women's Triple Jump: Caterine Ibarguen Looks to Cap A Dominant Four Years with the One Title She Doesn't Have -- Olympic Champion

The best shot for a South American to win T&F gold in the first Olympics on South American soil comes in the women's triple jump, where there are not one, but two candidates. Ibarguen has won 36 of her 37 competitions since taking silver four years ago, while Venezuela's 20-year-old World Indoor champ Yulimar Rojas has improved markedly in 2016 and should push Ibarguen.

Day 6 Recap: Bolt Beats Gatlin (Again) in 200, Christian Taylor Scares the World Record and Allyson Felix Reigns Supreme

Team USA has struggled at these championships but Thursday night went very well for the Americans as Taylor (triple jump) and Felix (400) earned the U.S.'s 2nd and 3rd golds of the championships in impressive fashion -- an 18.21 jump (#2 all-time) by Taylor and a 49.26-second run for Felix (PB). Justin Gatlin couldn't complete a perfect night, which is understandable as he once again lost to the incomparable Usain Bolt (19.55 to 19.74) and had to settle for silver.
