olympics. athletes are preparing this morning for the third day of competition. team usa leads all countries with 12 overall medals. three are gold. china is in second place for all medals. italy and japan are tied in third. ben tracy is outside of olympic park in rio with the american accomplishments so far. ben, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, bon gia so far, these games have been very good to team usa. last night, the action was obviously in the pool and that's when we saw katie la decky not only win the freestyle but beat herself. topped her own world record time by nearly two seconds and that's huge in swimming. michael fephelps helped beat reigning champs trance in the
8:04 am
michael pehelps has 23 and 19 ae gold. curious about the markings on phelps' back, what's known as cupping. it's a recovery method used to relieve tension in the muscles and increase blood flow but looks kind of strange. in gymnastics, the fierce five back in action and headed for the final but gabbie douglas did not make the cut for the individual all around. she was hoping to become the first to repeat as olympic champion gets under way in guana bara bay. if that rings a bell, it's for the wrong reasons. polluted, smells nasty and going to put helicopters in the air to spot for trash before the sailors hit it. good times here in rio, gayle. >> thank you very much, ben tracey. donald trump and hillary clinton are focusing on the economy as they each campaign
8:05 am
friday. she answered questions from preselected reporters at the national association of black and hispanic convention in washington. >> last formal news conference was last december in iowa more than 240 days ago. clinton said on friday, she might have short circuited it, her public answers about her private e-mail servers but said she never lied. the fbi director james coe mee e-mails marked the presence of classified information. >> he said there were three e-mails marked classified at the time. is that an inconsistency? >> well, here are the facts behind that as well. you know that i preside, i sent over 30,000 e-mails to the state department that were work-related e-mails.
8:06 am
out of 30,000 had anything resembling classified markers. the three e-mails out of the 30,000 did not have the appropriate markings. and it was therefore reasonable to conclude that anyone including myself would have not suspected that they were classified. >> "the washington post," thank you for being here and on behalf of all of us, we encourage you reporters across the country. [ applause ] especially those news organizations that travel the country with you everywhere you go. a majority of voters consistently say, frankly, they don't like you and they don't trust you. how would you lead a nation where a majority of americans mistrust you? >> i take this seriously. don't doubt that. i take it seriously. it doesn't make me feel good
8:07 am
i recognize that i have work to do. but when i started running for the senate in new york, a lot of the same things were said. i won. i worked hard for the people of new york. and i was reelected with 67% of the vote. >> cbs news contributor bob schieffer, a former chief correspondent and the host of "face the nation." good morning. >> hey. >> speak to this question about e-mails. she still hasn't, in a sense, cleared that issue >> you know, i think she has to somehow or another stop these, "yes, but" apologies. why doesn't she just say, i made a mistake, i regret it. i would never put the nation's national security at risk. but to try to go through all these fine points and things. >> the "yes, but" continues the story.
8:08 am
this case. she made a mistake. she has said she made a mistake and if she would let it go with that, maybe it would put this to rest. it's not going to bury it forever because republicans are going to keep bringing it up. >> is it that simple? i made a mistake, i learned, i moved on. >> that would be -- i'm not here to advise campaigns on allow to run their business, would help her. >> she also failed to respond, i think i've seen this little conference she had there on how limited it was. she failed to respond to the idea of adding more press conferences too. she sat there and smiled but did not respond. >> i think more press conferences would be good for her. i think it's better for everybody. >> donald trump going to reset his campaign today. in detroit giving a speech on his economic agenda but you've been talking to republicans who
8:09 am
what concerns them most? >> well, i mean, first, he says, the title of donald trump's speeches, not always what donald trump's speeches are about. he could announce he's going to talk about galileo's telescope or something and then a baby would cry. and he has a way of topping his own stories. but i think, in this case, we'll have to wait and see what he has to say. his advisors are desperately trying to get him back onck than some of these ad lib remarks he keeps getting deeper and deeper in trouble and this is now beginning to be reflected in these polls. >> what about this on the other side? a new "washington post" abc news poll shows trump with a 4 point lead among independent voters. those are the voters to help decide the elections. >> that is the one bright spot because every other thing in that poll seems to favor hillary clinton.
8:10 am
everywhere. you heard major garrett talking about it's very close in arizona. you know, how long has it been since a democrat has carried arizona? 1948, maybe. >> barry goldwater and others. >> what's the gop worried about? >> they're worried about now. and i mean, this is very real. i spent a lot of time last week toward the end of last week and over the weekend talking to insiders, unquote. they're not so worried now about whether he's going to win or lose, but whether, if he loses by a large enough margin in some of these key states that he takes down their senate candidates. for example, ohio. michigan. new hampshire. pennsylvania. they're saying to me, look, if he wins by 8 or 10 points, it will take down the republican. >> if she wins by 8 or 10 points
8:11 am
it will take down the senate candidates with them. they are more worried about losing the senate now, i think, than whether or not they win the white house. they're really worried. here's how serious it is. i had a former cabinet officer in a republican administration tell me last week he was calming around and trying to trump not it would be best if you resigned from the ticket. that's not going to happen. we know it's not going to happen but the fact people are talking that way tells you how worried they are right now about this. >> bob schieffer. always good to see you. the new star of in the studio. how javier munoz became a founding father of the musical

8:36 am
everybody is trying to get tickets. what is it? >> i think we just touched upon something that i think audiences have been waiting for so long, right? it's diversity on stage and a living history and it's something familiar to us. it's not -- it's not a fantastic story as far as something made up, right? this is our history and we are talking about something almost tangible. and that is so relevant to today, so i think all of that combined with just ln's genius in the music, there you go. >> it has everything, though. >> yes. >> including a sexy hamilton! >> oh, thank you. >> sexy hamilton! >> it has power. >> it does. >> a campaign for the presidency. >> yes. >> it has war. >> yes. >> betrayal. >> betrayal. >> yes, yes. >> but think about alexander hamilton. his dad abandoned him and his

life. >> won the olympic games. it's an enormous honor and privilege. >> gary hall and anthony irvin share the gold. >> reporter: instead it led to the most tumultuous time of his life. >> part of what led to a lot of the angst initially was doing well and performing well. the social kind of like joy that comes from others in knowing that one has done well and you kind of get hooked on that and you kind of need that to sustain yourself to move forward. >> reporter: adding to his parents are jewish, native american and african-american. >> anthony irvin the first swimmer of african-american descent to make the u.s. olympic team. >> reporter: the only problem, he never identified as a blackman. >> reporter: did it piss you off when they called you the first african-american swimmer? >> i wouldn't say piss me off. >> reporter: that added to the weight of his gold medal. at the height of it all, he
8:47 am
2003. >> the first olympic champion status was about rediscovering, rebuilding myself the way i wanted to be, not the way others were, at least the way i perceived others wanted me to be. >> reporter: over the next decade irvin sold his gold medal, donated the money to charity, then took off on a spiritual quest. he dabbled in everything from zen buddhism to the hard party lifestyle of playing in rock bands. instead of a pool, he sank into depression which at its deepest led to a suicide attempt and a death defying motorcycle accident. nearing age 30 he desperately needed a shot at redemption. >> for me getting the tattoos was a way of reclaiming my own skin, regaining control of myself. >> reporter: armed with elaborate new ink, he went back to school and started coaching at a swim camp for kids. those kids helped him remember what he loved about swimming in the first place. >> the water when i was a child
8:48 am
it was a place of expression and play, a place where everything else can kind of fallaway into this meditative state and i got that back. >> reporter: he dove back into competition and a dozen years after his last >> the most brilliant freestyle
8:49 am
ever posted. and it earned him a ticket to rio. >> it wasn't like i demanded this of myself. >> reporter: you didn't say, okay, i'm getting back in the pool and i'm making the next olympics. >> no way. >> reporter: he has no expectations of the future but more importantly, no regrets of the past. >> i avoid regret. i don't think anybody should be stuck in the past. that's a dead life if you're stuck in the past. life moves forward. >> reporter: because irvin helped the u.s. swim team win that 400 meter relay night, he now ties the record for longest gap of a u.s. swimmer between medals. 16 years set way back in 1924. gayle? >> wow, anthony irvin, remember that name. thank you, jamie. you certainly love hearing the backstory. >> the history of the olympics. >> think so, too. another person to cheer for.
