Sports: Olympic Update



American Sweetheart Shawn Johnson ended her runner-up streak with a beam routine Tuesday night that blew away the field, including all-around champ Nastia Liukin, behind whom Johnson got one of her three silvers.

Sergio Aguero scored two second-half goals in seven minutes Tuesday and later set up another to lead Argentina to a 3-0 win over rival Brazil and into its second straight Olympic final, this time against Nigeria.

Medal Count:
USA 79
China 76
Rus 42
