Coach strips to underwear to protest Olympic wrestling match

It's common for emotions to run high during the final seconds of any Olympic event. Sometimes, outcomes are contested.

But one man undressed Sunday afternoon as he contested the final scoring of a wrestling match.

In the 65kg freestyle wrestling bronze medal match, Uzbekistan’s Ikhtiyor Navaruzov beat Mongolia’s Mandakhnaran Ganzorig 8-7 in a match that ended in controversy and two Mongolian coaches taking off their clothes at the Olympic venue.

In the final seconds of the match, Ganzorig led by one and began dancing to celebrate his imminent medal. That celebration didn't last long.

According to The Associated Press, Uzbekistan challenged the scoring. Officials awarded Navaruzov a penalty point, which also gave him the bronze medal because tie matches are decided by the wrestler who last scored a point. 

Then began the unlikely turn of events.

Two Mongolian coaches stormed the mat in protest and began angrily shedding their clothes, with one getting all the way down to his blue briefs while the crowd chanted "Mongolia! Mongolia!"

That led to match officials awarding yet another penalty point.

Police eventually escorted the coaches from the mat.

What makes an Olympic swimming pool 'fast'?

The oldest Olympic swimming records are from the 2008 games in Beijing. Setting new record times has become a bit of a trend since then.

Yes, these are some of the most capable swimmers on the planet. But experts think the pools themselves might have something to do with it, too.

"It's by far the fastest pool in the world. And when I say fast, I'm talking about deep water," NBC's Rowdy Gaines told NPR in 2008.

Since the Beijing games, all the Olympic pools have been 3 meters deep, the recommended Olympic depth set by swimming's world governing body.

By accident or by design, it's deep enough that the waves the swimmers generate don't rebound off the bottom, so the water at the surface stays calmer.

Lane lines, unoccupied buffer lanes on either side and special gutters along the edges of the pool all help reduce the effect waves and turbulence have on the swimmers.

And the benefit would seem to be in the numbers. During the Rio Olympics, swimmers set more than 10 new world or Olympic records.

Simone Biles beats out Gabby Douglas, advances to represent Team USA

The U.S. women’s gymnastic team dominated the qualifying round on day 2 of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

On Sunday night, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez made their country proud, but it was Biles who truly outshone the competition. She posted top scores in three of the four rotations -- floor exercise, vault and balance beam. Biles scored 62.366 to win by more than 1.7 points.

This is somewhat sad news for Douglas, whose hope to become the first American woman to win back-to-back golds in the all-around has ended as Biles’ star continues to shine brighter and brighter.

There is a rule in the Olympics that stipulates each country can only send two athletes through to the final round of a sport, even if all of its athletes receive the top scores.

At this year’s games, those two athletes in the women’s all-around gymnastics category representing the United States will be Biles and Raisman, who edged out Douglas by just .476.

But Douglas is taking the news in stride.

"I feel like the two-per-country rule is fine," the London 2012 Olympic gold medalist said. "I'm feeling pretty confident, and I'm rejoicing now. It's been an amazing experience so far. I would have loved to go back and defend my title, but you know what? It's been an amazing ride. I can't complain."

Biles’ vault set her apart from the competition Sunday night, earning her an outstanding score of 16.050.

Apple patent blocks iPhones from recording at concerts

Apple was awarded a U.S. patent in June for a system that can force iPhones into disabling video-recording functions at concert venues.

>> Read more trending stories  

The system uses infrared signals to send messages to the smartphones to force them to shut down video recording capabilities. Apple's patent illustration shows a phone at a concert with the words "recording disabled" on screen. 

Various artists have been outspoken about fans filming their shows, with many claiming that it spoils the experience for other fans.

During a show this summer, Adele publicly told a fan who was filming the performance: "You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera ... I'd really like you to enjoy my show because there's lots of people outside that couldn't come in."

It's not known whether Apple plans to put the patent into use.

Yondr is another company with a mission to eliminate cellphone distractions at concerts.

The company creates "phone-free spaces" at events where attendees must seal their cellphones in one of the company's lockable pouches. The pouch stays locked inside the phone-free zone but unlocks once you leave it.

"If you haven't been to a phone-free show, you just don't know what you're missing. There's something about living in real life that can’t be replicated," Yondr founder Graham Dugoni told The Washington Post.

Watch: Boy's epic staredown at NCAA College World Series game

An NCAA College World Series game Saturday night between the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Texas Christian University Frogs was a normal game.

>> Read more trending stories  

The players worked for a win, fans cheered and booed at appropriate times and the cameramen panned their equipment around, capturing footage to be broadcast on television.

But then one ESPN camera landed on a very interesting subject -- a boy who immediately engaged in a staring contest, looking directly into the camera lens.

The boy's staring contest arguably became more intense and competitive than the baseball game he was attending.

ICYMI: There was an EPIC stare down last night at the CWS!Posted by NCAA Baseball on Sunday, June 26, 2016

He locked eyes with the camera and continued staring at it for nearly 30 seconds. At one point, the boy turned to look at his mother -- who was completely unaware of what was going on -- but then resumed his dedicated staredown with the camera. 

He even wiggled his eyebrows and shoulders to assert his confidence.

Coastal Carolina went on to win the championship. But the real winner is this kid.

Woman stalked by wolf for 12 hours, saved by bear

A woman wasn’t sure if she would make it out of the woods after a wolf stalked her for 12 hours. Luckily, a mother bear was nearby and the woman used that to her advantage.

Joanna Barnaby was with her friend, Tammy Caudron, and her dog, Joey, near Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories of Canada last week when the two women became separated while picking mushrooms, CBC reported. As she returned to her truck, she heard a growl and turned around to see a wolf standing near her.

"I heard this growl behind me. There was a long, tall, very, very skinny wolf. A black wolf. And his legs were spread and his hair was standing, and he was growling and baring his teeth,” she told CBC.

Barnaby said the dog, Joey, attempted to charge the animal, but it didn’t work. She told CBC that the wolf began to attempt to separate the two and work on just one of them. "I think he was weak. He didn't look healthy. He looked old to me. I don't think he wanted to take us both on,” she said.

The two would be stalked by the wolf for 12 hours until finally around 4:30 a.m. Barnaby said she heard a loud noise and recognized that it was a mother bear and her cub.

"I heard this big crashing behind me and realized that the mama bear had attacked the wolf, or maybe the other way around, I don't know, but they were fighting and I could hear the wolf yelping and I could hear the mama bear growling, and I could hear all this crashing and I just took off," she said.

Barnaby and her friend's dog were able to escape and make it back to the highway, where they were picked up by the authorities.
