    Olympics-Archery-Success is in a smile for Turkey's golden Gazoz

    Turkey's newest Olympic gold medallist Mete Gazoz has a weapon even more deadly than his archer's bow - a beaming smile. Gazoz's gold was a Turkish first in archery, a sport where fierce concentration is the watchword and South Koreans usually monopolise the titles. On Saturday, Gazoz faced Italy's former team Olympic champion Mauro Nespoli in the final, unleashing his secret weapon to triumph 6-4 and become the only non-South Korean archery champion at the Tokyo Games.

    Olympics-Table Tennis-Gold medallist Mizutani stands up against online abuse

    Jun Mizutani, who has become a target of cyberbullying after scoring Japan's first Olympic gold medal in table tennis, said on Monday he will fight against the online abuse. The 32-year-old paddler and Mima Ito wowed the world in an epic battle at the mixed doubles final last week, narrowly defeating the long-invincible Chinese pair Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen. Mixed in with the flood of congratulatory comments on social media, however, Mizutani also received death threats and verbal abuse from those who felt he and Ito broke rules, and that he did not play at his best.
