RIO DE JANEIRO — The Latest on the Olympics being held in Rio de Janeiro (all times local):

11:45 p.m.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica showed off a spectacular new hairdo during track and field 100 meters heats and ended up the only woman to beat 11 seconds.

The yellow-and-green-haired Fraser-Pryce will be trying to become the first woman to win the same individual track event at three Olympics in a row.

Two others weren’t able to accomplish the feat Friday. Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia took bronze in the 10,000 meters and Valerie Adams of New Zealand finished with silver in the shot put.

In the outside lane late Friday, Fraser-Pryce crossed in 10.96 seconds, with Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago setting the second best time of 11.00. All of the favorites advanced, with Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands, Elaine Thompson of Jamaica and Americans Tianna Bartoletta, English Gardner and Tori Bowie also winning their heats.

11:25 p.m.

Over halfway home, and Britain’s Jessica Ennis-Hill is where she wants to be – leading the heptathlon after four of seven events.

With a blistering 200 meters, the defending champion overtook surprise early leader Nafissatou Thiam of Belgium to regain the momentum going into the final day.

With a time of 23.49, Ennis-Hill pushed up her total to 4,057 points, the only woman to break the 4,000-mark. Thiam only set the 24th best time over the 200 meters and fell back to second with 3,985.

Akela Jones of Barbados was third with 3,964.

The heptathlon was supposed to be a battle between Ennis-Hill and Brianne Theisen-Eaton but the Canadian was disappointing throughout the day and was in sixth position with 3,871 points.

11:20 p.m.

Switzerland’s Martina Hingis and Timea Bacsinszky will face Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina for the tennis gold medal in women’s doubles Sunday. Two Czech teams will play for bronze Saturday.

Hingis and Bacsinszky, seeded fifth, beat sixth-seeded Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 5-7, 7-6 (3), 6-2 on Friday, while the seventh-seeded Russians defeated Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova 7-6 (7), 6-4.

11:05 p.m.

Sixteen years after winning his first individual gold medal at the Olympics, Anthony Ervin picked up his second with a furious dash from one end of the pool to the other.

Completing a remarkable journey in the blink of an eye, the oldest member of the U.S. swimming team touched first in the 50-meter freestyle, edging the defending Olympic champion, Florent Manaudou of France, by a mere hundredth of a second.

Another American, Nathan Adrian, took the bronze.

Ervin, 35, won his first gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, tying teammate Gary Hall Jr. for the top spot. Then, Ervin walked away from swimming, skipping the next two Olympics while he embarked on a journey to find his purpose in life.

Turns out, it was swimming all along. He returned to make the American team in 2012, but failed to win a medal in London. Now, improbably, he’s back on the top of the podium again.

11:05 p.m.

MEDAL ALERT: Michelle Carter of the United States upset favorite Valerie Adams in women’s shot put with a throw of 20.63 meters. Adams had been trying to win the event for the third straight Olympics.

10:45 p.m.

Britain’s track and field Super Saturday is still on – barely.

Defending long jump champion Greg Rutherford was a jump away from elimination after two fouls, but he scraped through on his last attempt with a mark of 7.90 meters for 10th position as only a dozen were allowed into Saturday’s final.

Rutherford won the long jump in London, within that crazy hour of athletics when fellow-Britons Mo Farah won the 10,000 meters and Jessica Ennis-Hill the heptathlon for one of the greatest moments in British sporting history.

All three could do it again on Saturday.

Ennis-Hill is leading the heptathlon after four of seven events. And Farah is a strong favorite to extend his title.

10:45 p.m.

LaShawn Merritt, Kirani James and Wayde van Niekerk all came through their track and field heats comfortably in the 400 meters, an event that’s shaping up to be a titanic battle between those three.

Merritt, the 2008 Olympic champion, looked good in winning his heat in 45.28 seconds from lane eight.

The American didn’t seem to mind the sparse crowd at Rio de Janeiro’s Olympic Stadium, saying “45.2, not too much energy put out. Great track, nice atmosphere. I feel good.”

Defending Olympic champion Kirani James ran the fastest time of the heats with 44.93. Van Niekerk, the South African who surprised those two to win the world championships last year, won heat two in 45.26 and was relieved. He said he was a little nervous before his Olympic debut.

9:45 p.m.

MEDAL ALERT: Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez of Spain won the first tennis gold medal of the Rio Olympics tennis competition, beating Florin Mergea and Horia Tecau of Romania 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 in the men’s doubles final.

Nadal and Lopez won the last three games Friday night after trailing 4-3 in the third set.

It’s the second Olympic gold of Nadal’s career. He was the singles champion at Beijing in 2008. It’s the first medal for Lopez.

Steve Johnson and Jack Sock won the bronze for the United States.

9:40 p.m.

Venus Williams is one victory away from her record-tying fifth Olympic tennis medal – and she got there by beating the woman who halted her sister’s bid for a calendar-year Grand Slam.

The 36-year-old American and Rajeev Ram reached the Rio Games mixed doubles semifinals with a 6-3, 7-5 victory Friday against Roberta Vinci and Fabio Fognini of Italy.

It was Vinci who pulled off one of the biggest upsets in tennis history by defeating Serena Williams in the 2015 U.S. Open semifinals.

Venus Williams owns one singles gold and three doubles golds.

Kathleen McKane won five Olympic tennis medals – one gold – in the 1920s.

Williams and Ram face Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna of India on Saturday for a berth in the mixed doubles final.

9:25 p.m.

Kyrie Irving scored 15 points and the U.S. men’s basketball team survived its second straight strong challenge in the Rio Games, edging Serbia 94-91.

The Americans won their 48th consecutive international tournament game, but it was anything but easy.

Serbia’s Bogdan Bogdanovic missed a 3-pointer from the left wing with 2 seconds left that would have tied it, and Kevin Durant grabbed the rebound to keep the Americans unbeaten. They barely escaped against Australia on Wednesday.

Seeking their third straight gold medal, the Americans built an early 18-point lead on Friday but couldn’t put away the Serbians, who lost by 29 to the U.S. in the 2014 Basketball World Cup final.

DeAndre Jordan scored 13 and Carmelo Anthony 12 for the U.S., which will close pool play on Sunday against France.

Nikola Jokic scored 25 and Miroslav Raduljica 18 before fouling out for Serbia.

9:25 p.m.

Sophie Schmidt scored in the 56th minute and Canada advanced to the women’s soccer semifinals at the Rio Games with a 1-0 upset of France on Friday night.

The tenth-ranked Canadians, who won the bronze medal at the London Olympics, had not dropped a match in Brazil but faced a tough quarterfinal against No. 3 France.

Canada will play Germany on Tuesday in Belo Horizonte.

Canada also defeated France in the bronze medal match in London.
