    Rio 2016 - Day 10: Drama in the men’s pole vault and the women’s beam!

    Relive the competitions of Monday 15 August 2016 in Rio on olympic.org. The athletics in the evening was marked by David Rudisha’s double in the 800m, Shaunae Miller’s dive at the finish of the 400m, and the incredible win by Thiago Braz Da Silva in the pole vault. Simone Biles came to grief on the beam and handed the title to Sanne Wevers. Charlotte Dujardin’s dazzling display secured her a second consecutive dressage title; and Cuban Greco-Roman wrestler Mijain Lopez won his third.
