Chris, Kyle and Dana celebrate Molly Seidel winning a bronze medal in the women’s Olympic Marathon behind Kenya’s Peres Jepchirchir and Brigid Kosgei. Seidel becomes just the third American woman to medal in the women’s Olympic marathon after Joan Benoit in 1984 and Deena Kastor in 2004. We also managed to get Molly’s sister, Izzy, on a quick call to share with us a little bit more about the atmosphere at the Seidel family watch party in Wisconsin.

More discussed in this episode:

– Faith Kipyegon puts an end to Sifan Hassan’s triple gold medal hopes with a brilliant victory

– Laura Muir with the Magical Performance of the Day

– Joshua Cheptegei gets his moment in the 5,000 meters but the race is highlighted by a mean lean by Paul Chelimo at the finish line

– Italy adds another medal with a win in the men’s 4x100m

– Jamaica had to sweat it out after the results in the women’s 4x100m relay as Team USA took silver

– Shaunae Miller Uibo completes a Bahamian sweep of the 400m gold medals, Allyson Felix gets medal No. 10 to tie Carl Lewis for the most medals by a U.S. track and field athlete. She has a chance to break the tie with the women’s 4x400m relay
