WRESTLING (GRECO-ROMAN)

PRELIMINARIES AND CLASSIFICATION
Three-time Olympic superheavyweight champion Aleksandr Karelin
of Russia opened defense of his title by manhandling all three
of his opponents. But his countrymen and fellow gold medal
favorites 136.5-pound Sergei Martinov and 198-pound Gogi
Kogouachvilla both suffered upsets. U.S. superheavyweight and
silver medal hopeful Matt Ghaffari easily advanced toward a
showdown with Karelin.

YACHTING

PRELIMINARIES
Lightning and severe-thunderstorm warnings off the coast of
Savannah canceled all but three events. Defending Olympic
champion Jose van der Ploeg Garcia of Spain finished first in
the Finn race, and the U.S. edged out Russia to take the lead in
the Soling competition. The Canadian combo of Ross Macdonald and
Eric Jaspersen rounded out the day with a win in the Star.
