>> A day of firsts in Rio Thursday. Fiji's rugby Sevens team raising the roof with a breathtaking performance, crushing Britain 43-7 in the final and winning the Pacific island nation its first ever medal in the games. It's the first time Sevens has made an appearance at the Olympics and has been a runaway hit with spectators, bringing with it the carnival atmosphere found at Sevens tournaments around the world.
Another record set on the golf course, Britain's Justin Rose acing the par 3 fourth hole for the first ever Olympic hole-in-one, although that's a feat that may need some context. Until Rio, there hasn't been a golf event at the games for more than 100 years. Making history at the pool, Simone Manuel, becoming the first black female swimmer to win an Olympic medal for Team USA, when she tied for first place in the 100 meter freestyle.
And the Michael Phelps juggernaut continues, the American winning the 200 meters individual medley to grab his 22nd gold medal. He's now the first swimmer to win the same event at four games in a row. Rio now shifts focus to track and field, just as its first doping scandal rears its ugly head.
Bulgarian runner, Silvia Danekova, testing positive for a bad blood booster. She was due to compete in the women's 3,000 meter steeple chase on Monday, but is now suspended pending the result of another test.
