As a group, they resembled the Tennis Super Friends, gathered at the Baseline Hall of Justice-a comic book-like tableau of legends, a little too surreal to absorb all at once. They assembled on the 20th floor of New York's St. Regis Hotel on Wednesday morning, dressed not in shorts and headbands, but in immaculate shirts and jackets.
It's time for everyone to crank out an Olympic wrap-up list, and let me assure you: this will be a Ryan Lochte-free experience. I've had my fill of Ryan Lochte, and the debates over Ryan Lochte, and all exclusive interviews with Ryan Lochte, and I'm assuming you have, too.
RIO DE JANEIRO-There have been lots of mesmerizing shows at these Summer Olympics in Rio, among them the gold medal performances of Simone Biles, Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky, and, of course, Ryan Lochte's Gas Station Adventure Company.

Rio de Janeiro Yes: I very much want to give Andy Murray full credit for his splendid and historic victory in Olympic men's singles Sunday-he's the first men's tennis player to win back-to-back singles golds, or two singles golds, period, and it's become another rollicking Olympics for mighty Great Britain-but before we do all that, can we talk for a quick second about Juan Martin del Potro?
The last time Juan Martin del Potro was in this spot, it ended in tears-an emotional undoing after an unforgettable, near-endless afternoon. Inside Centre Court at Wimbledon's All England Lawn Tennis Club, del Potro fell to Roger Federer 19-17 in the decisive and epic third set of an Olympic semifinal that left both men withered, and del Potro overcome.
It's shaping up to be another spectacular middle weekend for Great Britain at the Olympics, with Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Andy Murray and the track cycling team aiming to repeat their 2012 triumphs It's the second week of the Olympics, which can only mean one thing: Here comes Team GB.
Here's an obvious but overlooked truth about athletes at the Olympics: Before anything else, they're athletes. There are astonishing stories of individual perseverance, and obstacles overcome both personal and political, but at each athlete's core is an undeniable drive to...well, only a lucky few will win, or medal, but every last one of them wants to do something indelible and memorable that makes the experience worth it.
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'

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

Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For

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
