    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.

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.
