Ashton Eaton Wins Back-to-Back Gold for U.S. in Decathlon

Do you think this is really what it's like to have two Olympians in the house? What more could the now two-time Olympic champion Eaton do Thursday night to get just a little sliver of the limelight that beams so brightly on Usain Bolt?

Srour said Brazilian judges are notorious for pursuing cases such as Lochte's if charges are filed and that Brazilian authorities could use Interpol and other worldwide organizations to complicate his overseas travel. While the Brazilian government denied any truth to his story, Ryan continued to defend it , and even appeared on the Today Show earlier in the week, telling Matt Lauer, "The guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and said 'get down.'
