07/30 20:23 CDT Olympics Latest: Britain wins gold in mixed triathlon Olympics Latest: Britain wins gold in mixed triathlon TOKYO (AP) --- The Latest on the Tokyo Olympics, which are taking place under heavy restrictions after a year's delay because of the coronavirus pandemic: ___ Great Britain has won gold in the triathlon mixed relay, making it the winningest national team in the history of the sport. The U.S. took silver and France claimed bronze in the mixed relay at Odaiba Marine Park. Georgia Taylor-Brown, Jessica Learmonth, Alex Yee and Jonathan Brownlee made up the team that gave Great Britain its third triathlon gold and eighth overall medal, besting Switzerland's record. Taylor-Brown and Yee both also medaled in the individual contests earlier in the week, bringing home silver in the women's and men's events, respectively. ___ Hong Kong's rising star Siobhn Haughey has withdrawn from the semifinals of the 50-meter freestyle at the Olympics because of a hip injury. The 23-year-old swimmer earned a silver medal in the 100-meter freestyle on Friday, to go with the silver she won in the 200 free two days earlier. They are the first swimming medals won by Hong Kong. Her coach, Rick Bishop, said the injury first bothered her during the 100 free, but she kept going. She finished 15th in the 50 free preliminaries. Hong Kong was cheering her on, excited to see success for the first time at the Olympic pool. Her two silvers are among six medals won by the country since it first competed in the Summer Games in 1952. ___ Nigerian sprinter Blessing Okagbare has been provisionally suspended after a positive test for human growth hormone. She was due to run in the semifinals of the women's 100 meters at the Olympics on Saturday. The Athletics Integrity Unit said Okagbare tested positive in an out-of-competition test on July 19. The AIU says it was only informed of the finding on Friday, after Okagbare had already run in the 100-meter heats at the Tokyo Games. The AIU informed Okagbare of the finding and her provisional suspension on Saturday morning. Okagbare won her heat in 11.05 seconds at the Olympic Stadium to progress to the semis. __ --- More AP Olympics: https://apnews.com/hub/2020-tokyo-olympics and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
