SPORTLIGHT

Aug. 2

1864–The first Travers Stakes at Saratoga is won by Kentucky, a horse that scores 20 consecutive victories.

1912–John McDermott wins the U.S. Open golf championship for the second straight year with a 294 total.

1952–Five American boxers win gold medals at the Olympics, marking the first time the U.S. wins the unofficial team title. The five medalists are flyweight Nate Brooks; light welterweight Charley Adkins; middleweight Floyd Patterson; light heavyweight Norvell Lee and heavyweight Eddie Sanders.

1967–The New Orleans Saints play their first preseason game and lose to the Los Angeles Rams, 77-16.

1979–New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson is killed in a plane crash practicing takeoffs and landings near his Ohio home.

1986–Jackie Joyner sets the world record in the heptathlon at the U.S. Olympic Festival in Houston with 7,158 points.

1992–Vitaly Scherbo of the Unified Team wins gold medals in the vault, rings, pommel horse and parallel bars to give him a total of six gold, the most won by a gymnast in a single Olympic Games.

1994–Algerian Noureddine Morceli sets a world record in the 3,000 meters at a meet in Monte Carlo, finishing at 7 minutes, 25.11 seconds. Morceli shaves nearly 4 seconds off the previous record set in 1992 by Kenyan Moses Kiptanui.

2005–In the largest trade in NBA history, Antoine Walker is dealt from Boston to Miami in a transaction involving five teams and 13 players.
