    Olympics-Table Tennis-Japan beat Australia to advance to men's team quarter-finals

    The Japanese men's table tennis trio of Jun Mizutani, Koki Niwa and Tomokazu Harimoto won against Australia's Hu Heming, Yan Xin and David Powell 3-0 in the first round of Monday's team event, paving the way for the host country to enter the quarter-finals. Olympic mixed doubles gold medallist Mizutani and 26-year-old Niwa, two of the trio that earned silver at the 2016 Rio Games, took a strong lead in the doubles match even as the Australian pair Hu and Yan attempted to catch up by alternating between short and long shots.

    Olympics-Athletics-Jackson out of 200m after rookie heats blunder

    Jamaica's Shericka Jackson will not be able to add to her bronze from the 100 metres after a terrible error in the heats of the 200 on Monday, where she eased up too much and was overhauled on the line to finish fourth. Jackson, third-fastest in the world over the distance this year, did not bother to glance across and almost came to a stop as Italy's Dalia Kaddari slipped four-thousandths of a second in front of her to snatch the third automatic slot. There were no such problems for her two compatriots in the 100m clean sweep as Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce advanced safely through.
