    A night to remember for swimmer Erika Fairweather at the Tokyo Olympics

    A night to remember for swimmer Erika Fairweather at the Tokyo Olympics


    The 17-year-old has qualified for this afternoon's 400m freestyle final, with the fourth best time and a New Zealand record.



    The OlyWhites have lost 3-2 to Honduras in their second football group match.

    Libby Cacace and Chris Wood scored goals early in each half, but goalkeeping blunders eventually helped Honduras to victory.



    The Black Sticks men have beaten Spain 4-3 in their second hockey match.

    Momentum was traded regularly, but two final quarter goals sealed the win for New Zealand.



    Luuka Jones has qualified third for tomorrow's semi-finals in the K1 canoe slalom.



    For the first time since Athens in 2004, the US men's basketball team has lost at the Olympics.

    France, who knocked the Americans out of contention in the World Cup two years ago, won 83-76 in the opening game for both teams at Tokyo.

    Until then, the US had won 25 consecutive matches.



    Sailor Sam Meech has finished 19th in his opening Laser race and now faces a potential three races tomorrow after his second one was delayed.



    Michael Venus and Marcus Daniell have won their opening doubles tennis match in straight sets over a Belarusian combination and will face a Dutch pair next.



    Four-time Olympic champion Simone Biles' campaign has had some early struggles.

    Biles and her United States team finished second behind the Russian contingent in qualifying for the artistic gymnastics.

    It's the first time since 2010 the US women failed to post the top score of the day at a world championships or Olympics.



    Golfer Lydia Ko has finished tied for sixth, five shots behind Australian winner Minjee Lee at the Evian Championship major in France.

    Ko finished at 13-under par, having gone into the final round tied for third.



    The Tactix have fallen 63-59 to the Mystics in their last ANZ Premiership netball round robin match.

    The Tactix now play next week's elimination final against the Steel in Invercargill.



    The Wallabies have returned to the services of playmaker Quade Cooper.

    He's joined the Australian training camp in Queensland, after most recently playing in Japan.



    Wellington may miss hosting a Bledisloe Cup rugby test, as the implications of a paused Trans-Tasman bubble are worked through.

    Australia was due to take on the All Blacks in Auckland on August 7, then in Perth two weeks later before the third scheduled test in Wellington on August 28.

    However, AAP reports tests could be played in New Zealand on August 7 and 14, before flying to Perth for match three a week later.

    Wellington's Sky Stadium is booked for the Beervana festival on August 14, meaning another venue may need to be found.



    The Sharks have outscored the Bulldogs seven tries to four for a 44-24 NRL league victory on the Gold Coast.

    The Titans beat the Dragons 32-10.
