US men's swimming takes gold, Ledecky settles for silver

American swimmer Caeleb Dressel led the men's team to a gold medal in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay on Monday, marking Team USA's second gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Dressel is on a quest to win six gold medals at the Games and is often referred to as the successor to Michael Phelps, the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time with 28 medals.

Katie Ledecky on the U.S. women's swimming team, another decorated champion, was bested in the 400-meter freestyle by Australia's Ariarne Titmus, nicknamed "The Terminator." Ledecky's silver increased U.S. swimming's current medal total at the Tokyo Olympics to 8.

Osaka and Djokovic a step closer to special goals

Naomi Osaka is hoping to bring home the gold in women’s singles for host country Japan and is on her way after defeating Viktorija Golubic 6-3, 6-2. Novak Djokovic is also closer to something remarkable after defeating Jan-Lennard Struff: a Golden Slam. A Golden Slam is achieved by winning all four Grand Slams and an Olympic gold in the same year, a feat only accomplished by Steffi Graf in 1988.
