Messi To Leave Barcelona, Alix Klineman & April Ross Clinch Gold, Women’s and Men’s Bball Go For Gold


Lionel Messi, one of the best players in soccer history, will not be returning to his team Barcelona this year due to La Liga salary cap issues. The Club announced on its website,  Despite FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi having reached an agreement and the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today, this cannot happen because of Spanish La Liga regulations on player registration.” Messi will now be a free agent.


Americans Alix Klineman and April Ross clinched a gold medal in women’s beach volleyball. The “A Team”, as they are known, defeated Australia in straight sets becoming the first American women to win gold since the 2012 duo of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings.

In women’s basketball, the U.S. will play for the gold against either Japan or France, and in men’s basketball the U.S. will play France for the gold.
