There was no bromance in the 200-m final.

The two fast men dropped the smiles and finger wags and got down to business in the 200-metre final Thursday night.

Andre De Grasse won his second medal at Rio 2016 by finishing second on a wet and windy track, but it was Usain Bolt who stole the show, striding to his third straight Olympic gold in the event.

A pair of actual brothers won the triathlon.

British brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee finished in first and second, respectively, in the swim, bike and run race at the Olympics Thursday. The result was a repeat from the London Games for Alistair, who won the gold, but Jonathan upgraded from his previous Olympic result to silver.

Elsewhere in track and field, decathletes Ashton Eaton for the U.S. and Damian Warner for Canada ran the 1,500-metre to decide who would be crowned the world's best athlete (a title unofficially bestowed on the Olympic champion in the event.)

Eaton won the prize for the second Olympics in a row while Warner took the bronze — only Canada's second-ever in the event.

Other Canadian track and field athletes competing on Thursday included the Pan Am silver medallist Tim Nedow, who  failed to make the final in the men's shot, and high jumper Alyxandria Treasure, who qualified for for Saturday evening's final with a personal best height of 1.94 metres.

Allyson Felix and English Gardner got a rare 2nd chance.

The two members of the U.S. women's 4x100 relay team ran a re-race after a botched handover in their qualifying heat was ruled not their fault. They ran a repechage-type time trial on Thursday and qualified for the final.

Erica Wiebe pinned her opponent 3 times for gold.

The 27-year-old from Stittsville, Ont., won the gold medal match against Kazakhstan's Guzel Manyurova in the 75-kilogram final 6-0. Her win is Canada's fourth gold medal at the Rio Games.

Meanwhile, Ryan Lochte and teammates allegedly lied about being robbed.

The mystery behind the claim U.S. swimmers Ryan Lochte, James Feigen, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz were robbed at gun point has become the biggest non-sporting spectacle of the Games. Here's Conger and Bentz leaving a police station in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday. The U.S. Olympic Committee apologized Thursday night.
