🥎Softball: Hey google, play “deja vu” by Olivia Rodrigo. Thirteen years later, Team USA softball couldn’t flip the script, falling 2–0 to Japan today, a repeat result from the 2008 gold medal game. Thirty-nine-year-old Japanese pitcher Yukiko Ueno tossed a gem, following up her 2008 gold medal–winning performance.

  • The biggest heartbreaker? Softball won’t be returning to the Games in 2024, marking the end of the Olympic road for legend Cat Osterman. What a career.

🏄‍♀️Surfing: American Carissa Moore shredded her way to history, winning the first-ever women’s Olympic surfing gold in the sport’s debut Games. The four-time world champion capitalized on the bigger waves, scoring a 14.93 in the gold medal heat. We’re stoked.

🏊‍♀️Swimming: Another night, another epic watch-party celebration. In the 100m breaststroke, 17-year-old Lydia Jacoby beat out teammate Lilly King (the world record holder) to win gold.

  • And Regan Smith added to Team USA’s double-digit medal count in swimming, grabbing her first Olympic medal with a third-place finish in the 100m backstroke. Down here all the fish are happy.
