Wednesday’s A.M. Hot Clicks: USA’s Golden Night; Chloe Goodman
Katie Ledecky continued her unbeaten streak in major event finals with a win in the 200m freestyle at the Rio Games on Tuesday. Not to be outdone, Michael Phelps ran his lifetime medal count up to a ridiculous 21 golds with wins in the 200m butterfly and the 4x200m freestyle relay, despite ripping his cap moments before hitting the water. Their countrywomen on the gymnastics team (see gallery above) also had a big day, with Team USA continuing its dominance on the way to a women’s team all-around gold. Rio Galleries: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3| Day 4.

Sports Never Looked So Good
You should really be following Sports Illustrated’s Instagram account, especially with the new story addition that has featured a stream of beautiful Olympic images since the games began. They didn’t even ask me to say that. I just think it's really, really great.
Odds & Ends
It turns out more people follow through on their job-quitting fantasies than you would think ... Michael Phelps explained why he found the National Anthem so funny ... Have fans figured out the Frank Ocean album release date? (probably not) ... Is the Olympic pool designed to help break records? ... A history of the most modern of art forms, the GIF.
