Aly Raisman knew she slayed and the tears in her eyes proved it. Raisman entered the final rotation of the women's individual gymnastics all-around in third place Thursday, but a marvelous floor exercise flipped the 22-year-old gymnast to a silver medal. With a look of confidence and determination, Raisman entered her final tumbling pass and landed with precision.
Bow down to the G.O.A.T. Sports commentators have called Simone Biles the greatest gymnast of all-time, and now she has the hardware to shut down anyone left in doubt.

If you come at the king (of gold medals), you best not miss. Chad le Clos should have heeded the advice of The Wire's Omar Little when he goaded Michael Phelps before the men's 200m butterfly final.
Warning: Olympic spoilers ahead that would make George Washington proud. U-S-A! U-S-A! The Magnificent Seven in 1996. The Fierce Five in 2012. The Final Five in 2016. The American women's gymnastics team took home gold during the team competition at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday.
Michael Phelps is sick of your sh*t, Chad le Clos. The long-time rivalry between the swimmers continued Monday at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the men's 200-meter butterfly. Before Phelps and le Clos splashed it out in the pool, the pair sat in the ready room and had very different preparation approaches.
Ryan Lochte's grandmother couldn't make the trip to Rio, but the 95-year-old's support still burns bright. The five-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer shared a video of his grandma rolling through her nursing home carrying a DIY Olympic torch. Lochte swims his first race on Wednesday in the men's 200 meter individual medley.
The Olympics bring the world together in the spirit of competition ... for the best dab, obviously. The Rio 2016 Games kicked off Friday with a dazzling opening ceremony, but nothing could outshine the dabbing prowess of elite athletes. Sorry, Gisele.
Warning: Spoilers. And funny stuff. But also spoilers. "Hold the laughter," Hodor's brother, Holaug (probably). The Game of Thrones Season 6 blooper reel landed Friday in the lead-up to the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Daenerys Targaryen stumbles over Dothraki words while riding a piece of green screen and Sansa finally has something to laugh about (other than Ramsay Bolton's tasty demise).
A weather balloon lifted a high-flying iPad to the edges of space and then dropped the Apple gadget 100,000 feet onto a rocky Nevada hillside.

U-S-A! U-S-A! Mental Floss brings the Fourth of July holiday spirit Monday with 26 facts dripping with red, white and blue patriotism. By the way, there's nothing interesting on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Sorry, Nic Cage.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
