    Background: LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA

    Joe Fargis got the United States off to their gold medal winning performance in the equestrian competition on August 8, completing the fifteen-obstacle course on "Touch of Class" without a fault. That ride helped the U.S. take the gold with only twelve faults, with Britain getting the silver with 36.75 points.

    Italy won its first Olympic weightlifting medal since 1924 when Norberto Oberburger won the 110 kilogram class. Oberburger, 24, lifted a total of 390 kgs.

    In the women's basketball finals, the United States had a decisive 85-55 victory over South Korea with China beating Canada for the bronze. Instrumental in the U.S. win was Cheryl Miller, who has led the University of Southern California to U.S. women's collegiate titles, scoring sixteen points. Janice Lawrence added twelve points, and Cindy Noble ten.

    The quarter-final of the men's light-welterweight boxing bout between the United States and South Korea was won on points by Jim Page over Dong-Kil Kim. The South Korean, the second-ranked fighter in the world in his weight class, appeared to have won the fight with a strong finish in the third round, and a knockdown in the second. But the ringside judges favoured the U.S. boxer by four to one. The decision sparked a protest by Soc-In Oh, vice-president of the Korean Amateur Boxing Federation saying that judges favoured U.S. fighters in bouts that went to decisions. The judges voted for Page where from Uganda, New Zealand, Colombia and Nigeria, with the Italian judge voting for Kim.
