Tennis: Mike Bryan didn't plan a celebratory move after he and twin brother Bob won the gold medal in men's doubles for the United States on Centre Court at Wimbledon on Saturday.
But he liked the spontaneous leap into Bob's arms after defeating Michael Llodra and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 6-4, 7-6 (2).
"We've never hugged for so long," said Bob, who with his brother played at Stanford from 1996-98.
The top-seeded team, which has won 11 Grand Slam doubles titles, won a bronze medal in Beijing in 2008.
"We're a different team when we're playing for the flag," Bob Bryan said.
Richard Gasquet and Julien Benneteau of France won the bronze medal by defeating David Ferrer and Feliciano Lopez of Spain 7-6 (4), 6-2.
Basketball: Former Saint Mary's College star Patty Mills scored a tournament-high 39 points and Australia beat Britain 106-75 to earn a spot in the men's quarterfinals.
Mills, now a San Antonio Spurs guard, had 15 points in the third quarter to spark Australia's comeback. Saint Mary's guard Matthew Dellavedova scored all nine of his points by going 3 for 3 on 3-pointers in the period as Australia rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit.
Rowing: Piedmont native Scott Gault helped the U.S. men's four team to a bronze medal, marking the country's first podium finish since the Barcelona
Diving: Stanford's Cassidy Krug, rebounding from a slow start earlier in the competition, advanced to Sunday's final in the 3-meter springboard diving event. Krug ended up fifth after Saturday's semifinals round with a score of 345.600 points. American teammate Christina Loukas finished sixth with 339.750 points. China's Wu Mingxia had the top qualifying score of 394.400 in the five-round semifinals.
