Guide to the Olympics: August 13


There's some more swimming tonight on NBC (four medal events), which is good for the U.S., because they have been dominating in the pool. On land, however, things haven't gone quite as smoothly: while you were sleeping, men's soccer lost to Nigeria, 2-1, ending their Olympic Games, and the baseball team lost to Korea, 8-7. Currently, on the Today show, a specialist is on to discuss the new swimming suits with...Al Roker.
