RIO DE JANEIRO -- Three golds in four days. The Iron Lady sure has made up for her previous Olympic disappointments.Katinka Hosszu won the 200-meter individual medley Tuesday to complete a sweep of the IMs.Amazing, said Hosszu, whose nickname comes from her grueling schedule. I honestly cant believe I have three golds.The 27-year-old Hungarian came to Rio de Janeiro with five golds and nine medals overall at the world championships. But she had never won an Olympic medal, her closest call a fourth-place showing in the 400 IM four years ago in London.I would have been OK grabbing any color, she said.Her fourth games have been a triumph for Hosszu, who is coached by her American-born husband, Shane Tusup. The couple met as students at the University of Southern California.Hosszu shattered the world record in the 400 IM, also claimed gold in the 100 backstroke, and held off Britains Siobhan-Marie OConnor to take the 200 IM. The winning time was an Olympic-record 2 minutes, 6.58 seconds.I dont think I had my best race, but this is what weve been working for the last four years, she said.At the 2012 London Games, Hosszu was expected to shine. Instead, she struggled on swimmings biggest stage.I was so nervous, so afraid, what if I dont win a medal? she recalled. Coming into Rio, I wanted to take it like any other meet. Im really able to just be myself.Hosszu dropped out of the 200 butterfly during the afternoon preliminaries, wanting to put her full energy into a race that encompasses all three strokes.It worked.Having just one gold would have been unbelievable for me, Hosszu said. Having three is really just a bonus.And shes not done yet.Hosszu still has the 200 back and 200 butterfly on her schedule.Katinka is having a fantastic meet, said American rival Katie Ledecky, winner of three medals, including two golds. She has such a wide range of events that shes been continually improving on the last couple of years.

The 1.83-meter (6-foot) Leapai defeated the previously unbeaten Denis Boytsov in November to become the WBOs mandatory challenger. After a pair of 1,000-yard seasons, Baylor career rushing leader Shock Linwood still has to earn his carries for the Bears. They have two other runners with 100-yard games this season.The Big 12 has long had a reputation for big-play passing offenses, but there are also some impressive running combos. Besides No. 11 Baylor, No. 19 Oklahoma and Texas havent been single-handed in piling up more than 200 yards a game.While an injured right knee has Chris Warren III out for Texas, the Longhorns still have Big 12 rushing leader DOnta Foreman, who is also second nationally with 149 yards rushing per game. Oklahoma has Samaje Perine, the Big 12s leading rusher as a freshman two seasons ago, and all-around standout Joe Mixon.Here is more on the dual threats:SHOCK FACTORIn the game after Linwood broke Baylors career rushing record that had stood for 35 years, he had only two carries for 4 yards against Oklahoma State on Sept. 24. The senior likely re-established himself as the Bears top runner among their trio with a career-high 237 yards at Iowa State before an open date.This is the guy that everybody was talking about, and I hadnt really seen that guy early, acting head coach Jim Grobe said. When he got challenged, when he didnt play a lot, he had a great week of practice.Linwood said he was motivated by what happened in the last home game, and admitted being pretty upset after barely touching the ball against Oklahoma State. But he clearly took to heart the message about practicing better.The Bears lead the Big 12 with 290 yards rushing per game -- 12 yards more than their passing average. Linwood is fourth in the league with 90.8 yards rushing per game, while sophomore Terence Williams is sixth with 82 yards per game.Baylor also has redshirt freshman JaMycal Hasty, who had 105 yards against Rice but only one carry in Linwoods breakout game in which Williams also had 126 yards and two touuchdowns.ddddddddddddLONGHORN LEGSEven with a pulled abdominal muscle, Foreman ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against Oklahoma, when the Longhorns were without the injured Warren for the first time.Hes a guy that we are definitely excited about, offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert said of Foreman, the deceptively quick 249-pound junior. He was not 100 percent healthy, and the kid went out there and was determined. He fought, he battled to the yards that he got.Both Foreman and Warren got banged up in the Oct. 1 game at Oklahoma State. Warren, still third in the Big 12 with 91.5 yards per game, is out 6-8 weeks after running 10 times for 106 yards before halftime against the Cowboys. Foreman had 148 yards in that game.BOOMER SOONERPerine ran for a season-high 214 yards in the Red River Rivalry game against Texas, on 35 carries without negative yards on any of those. It was Perines 12th career 100-yard game , trailing only Linwoods 15 for the most by an active Big 12 player.Mixon had been the Sooners leading rusher -- at least stats-wise -- before then. Mixon averages 77.6 yards rushing per game (eighth in the Big 12), and 6.5 yards per carry. Hes also second on the Sooners with 15 catches, and is their primary kick returner.After missing spring practice following left ankle surgery to repair torn ligaments, Perines rushing total has increased each game this season. He is now second in the Big 12 with 92.2 yards per game.Hes getting his rhythm back, coach Bob Stoops said. I think a lot of people can take it for granted hes the same old guy as soon as hes out there. Thats a fine art, those guys, in the way they run, and split-second reactions. Hes just getting his grove back.---Online: AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
