total to 100 medals, including ashton eaton, the world's greatest athlete times two. winning the decathlon yesterday. >> by the way, that's a beautiful sight. very nice. >> don't get me wrong. i'm looking forward to going home, but i'm going miss it here. >> i've got two words for you. wah. a major developments overnight in the robbiery scandal involving four swimmers including ryan lochte. two of the swimmers heading home overnight after speaking with police. we still haven't heard from ryan lochte. what does this mean for his future and endorsements. we're going to look back at what an incredible two weeks it has been at the venues and here on our set. right? >> really has been great. now let's go back to new york
this friday morning. >> i'm all at some point and times because you guys are coming back. we'll get you caught up on politics. a surprising shift from donald trump as he does something he never does on a campaign trail. expressed regret for making statements that caused some people pain. we'll hear from him in just a bit. >> savannah, thank you very much. let's talk about the scandal that continues to evolve. it involves the u.s. swimmers, including ryan lochte. have been debunked by rio officials. the usc apologizing. at the gas station where it all happened. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning thchlt is the gas station you're about to see in security foot j. what stunning this morning is an altercation here could turn into an international incident. as you can see, there are security cameras surrounding this gas station. there was never any chance that
come out. overnight a broken deal with brazil. jimmy feigen's attorney saying the swimmer has agreed to donate nearly $11,000 to a brazilian charity to resolve the case. >> anything you want to say to your supporters? >> reporter: hours earlier, jack conger and bentz leave brazil. after giving statements to police, brazilian lawyer taking a shot at ryan speak with any journalists or lie to any journalists. they were just quiet and didn't know what was happening. the u.s. oc now confirming the police version of events. investigators saying the gold medallists were never robbed. the evidence security video from early sunday. at 5:47 a.m. swimmers ryan lochte and jimmy feigen are seen leaving a party with bentz and conger. took a taxi back towards the
at 6:07 a.m. you can see one head toward the back of the gas station near the bathroom. a minute later the four emerge followed by a gas station employee, concerned police say because the swimmers had vandalized the bathroom that's one of the security cameras that filmed the footage. the swimmers walk through here. and further down as you can see, an advertisement appears to be been pulled from the road. badly damaged. testimony swimmers returned to cab. at 6:09 driver gets in. a security guard approaches reaching out. it's unclear if he has something in his hand. at 6:12 after a discussion the swimmers exit the taxi. at 6:14 we see a p different angle. you can see the swimmers put hands up and sit down. a guard approaches with a hand on the hip. one guard told investigators he did draw the weapon to get
with four large athletes. one who of whom was getting aggressive. police let them go after handing over $50 to pay for the bathroom damage. this a very different story. >> we got pulled over in our taxi and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge. no lights, no nothing. just a police badge. pulled us over. pulled out their guns guy pulled out his gun. he cocked it. put it to my forehead. >> in the days since that interview, lochte changed some details, but sticking to his story that they were robbed. the american embarrassment forcing u.s. oc to apologize to the people of brazil. the behavior of these athletes is not acceptable nor does it remit the values of team usa or the conduct of the vast majority
occurred not here at the gas station, but beside it at the car wash. this is where you can see in the security foot j sitting at the curb side. having a conversation with gas station officials. what the swimmers say is no one there who spoke english. brazilian officials say there was a translator. the swimmers perhaps didn't understand why they were being asked for money. the brazilians say they were making it perfectly clear. all of this was lost in guys. >> thank you very much. we can confirm that gunnar bentz and jack conger have landed back in the united states. they arrived just before we went on air this morning. also we have spoke on the jimmy feigen this morning. he confirmed he has revised the statement he originally gave to police. he agreed to pay $11,000 in restitution. that will apparently get him his passport back. he's not in possession of his passport right now.
leave brazil tonight. >> no word from ryan lochte yet. >> not yet. bring bob costas, prime time host. so many incredibly great stories over the last couple of weeks, but this is dominating the headlines over the last three days. in the future will this be seen as a footnote to these games or something more. >> i think it might be more than a footnote, but it's not going to be a dominant story. so many historic things sports wise happened here. although we have our fingers crossed and s left, there have been a few glitches. by and large none of the things we feared about an olympics in rio have come to pass. they have done a good job hoetsing. the people have been wonder. . we had a good experience. we come away with dozens and dozens of memories and great sports events and people we met and interacted with it. i'm not trying to minimize it. i don't think this in the end will be something that is, you know, at the top of the list or
sensitive spot in rio. the fact there was these robbers with badges and things like that. how much bigger could it get because of this. >> they are rightly concerned with the image of rio as a place that leaves security you associate with olympics and terrorism i aside. they have a litigate issue with street crime. no one denies that. if this had been true, they want the wd have pursued whoever responsible: if it turns out not true, they don't want this to smudge the reputation when they've done a good job hosting the olympics. >> what's in the future for the swimmers. in particular ryan lochte who is the most well known in terms of endorsements, in terms of his future in the sport. >> he's an old face name. the others get a pass they were ynger, not a big deal. and swimmers make most of their
he's probably cost himselves millions and millions of dollars. >> all right. stick around. going to be back in the next half hour. talk about the question, are we seeing the best athletes. is this the best u.s. team ever here in rio. >> speaking of competition, usain bolt was back on the track last night as team usa reached a special milestone. here with the highlights. >> really great number. our athletes now the fourth straight summer games. seven coming on thursday while usain bolt struck gold again. >> reporter: the fastest man alive, usain bolt, rushing the competition in the 200 meters. >> he makes it look easy. >> winning the sprint in three consecutive olympics. bolt's parents looking on as their son makes history. prior to the race.
home. in the race, the olympic champ breaking out early and never looking back, but despite another gold, bolt was disappointed he did not break 19 seconds. >> i'm always happy for the win, but i wanted the fastest time. >> reporter: bolt has said rio will be his last olympics. going for a triple, triple. medals in the 200 and relay in three straight olympics. >> that's the heart of a champion. >> day and night for team usa wracking up five gold medals. american ashton eaton maintaining the title of the world's greatest athlete. >> everybody behind me for all those years, this is for them. >> back to back olympic gold in the decathlon. >> muhammad is out fast. >> reporter: in the 400 meter hurdles, delie la muhammad the

and finally,a relay redo for the american women initially failing to qualify in the 4 by 100 meter relay after allyson felix made contact with a brazilian runner. >> they dropped the stick. >> causing this botched baton handoff, but the americans were allowed to run again alone. >> she has the baton. >> in take two, the americans managed to qualify for tonight's final. >> so the standings in the medal count remain unchanged. usa, china, great britain with a commanding lead there. take a look, 100 through thursday. fourth straight summer games of 100 medals or more. how much do we love that? coming up today, the men's and women's 4 by 100 relay. the gold medal match women's soccer.
>> you mentioned that gold for ashton eaton in the decath lon. the world's greatest athlete is on with us in copa cabana beach. the world's greatest athlete times two. how does it feel the second time around? >> i'm a little bit more sore now, but it feels good. >> this goes over two days. you're known for building up a lead. how were you feeling going into theec lead? >> i have to admit they were times i was doubtful, but it was a good thing because there's young kids coming up really pushing me and that challenge me and i drive on and rose to the challenge and i'm glad i did. >> thursday during the poll vault, you had that amazing pass. the emotion you showed after that kind of said it all. describe what that was like for you. >> at that point, i was
if this is in the bag. and i think at that moment, i knew that all my training, not just for the last four years, but really my whole life, physical and mental led up to that point. >> all comes down to the 1500 meter. how much pressure were you feeling standing at the beginning of that race. >> you know what, normally i'm very nervous and feel a lot of pressure. i thought i'm willing to run myself into the hospital if i have to. i was in a cold shower going to step up and be able to do this ashton, and i made a pact with myself. >> you got some ridiculous criticism for we'ring a canadian cap. you were cheering her on. >> yes. >> competed, you won bronze as well. how do you split the focus? concentrate on your own event

beach, however we have been informed that cases are being investigated and the mayor says the battle on the beach is now a full on war. >> we have all hands on deck. this has been going on since january. i wouldn't want to be a mosquito on miami beach. that's for sure. >> to try to get an understanding of how important this is here, not only $24 billion, but since zika was discovered in south florida, tourism, advanced booking in hotels has dropped 72%, but of course we need to factor into that that it's the end of summer. people are getting back getting ready to go to school. getting their kids ready. may not be directly linked to zika, but certainly something they're watching closely here. >> tourism so important where you're standing. thank you. now we move to the presidential race. a rare admission from donald trump. the republican nominee expressing regret for the first
