Olympics roundup: Is Phelps the best Olympian ever? Plus Team USA gymnasts win gold and badminton teams allegedly throwing games

Everyone still talking about the magical night for the US women's gymnastics team. They routed the Russians and everyone else on their way to the gold medal in the team competition.

Also, Team USA swimmer Michael Phelps is cementing his legacy, now the most decorated Olympian of all time. He won his record-breaking 19th medal, adding another gold to his haul.

And eight Olympic women's badminton players from China, South Korea and Indonesia face a disciplinary hearing after being accused of "not using one's best efforts to win a match" in doubles contests that drew boos from spectators. In other words, they're accused of 'throwing the game."

This morning on "Early Start," Amanda Davies recaps the big Olympic stories of the last day.
