RIO DE JANEIRO -- China is golden again, winning its fifth diving title of the Rio Olympics. Adolis Garcia Jersey .Cao Yuan led throughout to win mens 3-meter springboard with 547.60 points on Thursday. He climbed out of the water after his last dive and pumped both fists in celebration.Jack Laugher of Britain earned silver with 523.85 for his countrys first medal in the event and his second in Rio de Janeiro. He and Chris Mears won synchronized 3-meter to give Britain its first gold in diving, spoiling Chinas bid to sweep all eight golds in Brazil.Patrick Hausding of Germany rallied from 10th after the semifinals to take bronze at 498.50.The water in the diving pool was back to its usual blue color a week after turning a murky green in one of the biggest embarrassments of the games for local organizers.With four-time Olympic champion Greg Louganis looking on, Cao led all six rounds in the final. The 21-year-old Chinese finished off his performance by scoring 96.90 on his last dive, a forward 4+ somersault tuck.Hes incredible, American Kristian Ipsen said. Hes so athletic, just really, really quick. Hes fun to watch.In the fifth round, Laugher performed the same dive that Cao saved for last and received the same 96.90 total.But it was Hausding who did the difficult dive the best of anyone. He earned 98.80, the highest score of anyone in the 12-man final.Why am I not first? Hausding said, laughing. But Im totally fine with third place.The 27-year-old German overcame knee and shoulder injuries to make it to Rio. He had surgery on his knee and is taking painkillers for his shoulder.Ive had a rough season with less training. I started very badly into this competition, Hausding said. But I kept myself mentally strong. Didnt watch the scores. Just did my thing. It was the right decision in the end.Cao added gold to the bronze he won earlier in synchro 3-meter. His teammate, He Chao, didnt make it out of the preliminaries on Monday, when strong winds and cold wreaked havoc on the competition. World champion He balked on his second and third dives and scored just 27.75 on his third attempt -- the lowest score given to a Chinese diver so far in Rio.Competing in the finals by myself added a lot of pressure, Cao said through a translator. I was able to let go and really focus on putting on my performance and putting up a show.Defending Olympic champion Ilya Zakharov of Russia failed to advance out of the semifinals. He hit his feet on the board on his first dive in the prelims and then he barely topped 50 points in the next two rounds.Laugher had his own problems, barely grabbing the last spot for the final earlier in the day.Its actually my personal worst score since London, where I actually failed a dive, he said, laughing. For me, it was a bit of a shocker, literally 60 points less than what Ive scored in ages. I realized if I just did a good dive to finish, I might make the final. I had luck on my side today.Ipsen finished fifth and teammate Mike Hixon was 10th.The semifinals were held in sunny and hot conditions; the nighttime finals were in cooler weather.I actually knew going into it that it was going to be an interesting Olympics, it was going to be different than some of the others just because its an outdoor facility, Ipsen said. There are a lot more variables that you have to deal with compared to an Olympics thats indoors. Jack Flaherty Jersey . Nathan MacKinnon, Jamie McGinn and Jan Hejda also scored for the Avalanche, who won despite being outshot 38-23. MacKinnons goal, also on the power play, came with just over a minute remaining. Bruce Sutter Jersey . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. https:///...ersey-cardinals.html . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. The New York Giants defense took a hit Tuesday with news that starting safety Darian Thompson will miss the remainder of the season.Thompson is having surgery on his foot and was placed on injured reserve. He missed the Giants past six games with a sprained foot.Offensive lineman Adam Gettis was elevated from the practice squad to take Thompsons spot on the roster.Its a disappointing end to a promising rookie season for Thompson. The Giants had high hopes for him after he blew them away this spring and summer, when he almost immediately worked his way to the top of the depth chart thanks to his ball skills and ability to grasp the defense.Thompson was expected to start opposite Landon Collins, but he was hampered by a string of injuries. He hurt his shoulder this summer and had his foot stepped on by a teammate late in a Week 2 victory over the New Orleans Saints. Thompson suffered a setback at practice last Wednesday that ultimately ended his season.Undrafted rookie free agent Andrew Adams has started the past five games at free safety. Hes expected to keep the role. Nat BBerhe also returned last week after missing four games with a concussion. Junior Fernandez Cardinals Jersey. Last Wednesday, Thompson felt pain when he tried to plant his foot and was forced to shut it down. He went to North Carolina on Tuesday to meet with renowned foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, who recommended surgery.Thompson split time with Berhe in the opener and made his first career start in Week 2 against the Saints. He shined in the first two games of the season -- making seven tackles -- and looked like a potential difference-making player on the defense.The Giants were excited about the possibilities of adding a natural center fielder to their defense. The free safety was supposed to be an ideal complement to Collins, who thrives closer to the line of scrimmage.Thompson set the Mountain West Conference record with 19 career interceptions, and he impressed the Giants this spring and summer with his ability to command the defense and ball-hawking skills.
