Leyva lost control during the incredibly difficult spinning routine on the horse and ended up falling. He tweeted after the event, not about his disappointment, but about how he refuses to give up.
Didn’t turn out as planned but you better believe this is gonna serve as huge motivation for everything from here on out

The U.S. team appeared disappointed and emotional after the event, but they maintained their composure and kept control.
As expected, water polo team captain Brenda Villa is on the fast track to her first Olympic gold. With a win against Hungary under their belts, the womens’ water polo team is ready to take on China and Spain. The team just needs to bolster their defenses after allowing 13 goals into the goal.
And US rower Giuseppe Lanzone placed first in the Saturday heats with the team. The Ralph Lauren model is set to row this Wednesday against legends like Germany and Great Britain. As for now, the gold medal is up in the air. Can the US snag another rowing medal?
