Simone Biles gets third gold medal.

This time for vault. Simone Biles is now in the not-actually-enviable position of knowing that, should she merely get four out of five gold medals this Olympics, people will be wondering if she cracked a little under the pressure. That scenario looks kind of unlikely – at this point, Ms. Biles is getting scored virtually on the exact placement of her outermost molecules on the mat – but it’s weird how expectations can shift, no?

In other news: we’re comfortably ahead on medals, but Usain Bolt beat us on the 100m. …I can live with that.
