Day two of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games saw competitions being canceled from damaging wind gusts and security concerns increase based on robberies and shootings around the venues. But the games went on, with medals awarded in such sports as women's cycling, archery, judo and more:

VAN DER BREGGEN WINS GOLD IN THE WOMEN'S ROAD RACE

Netherlands' Anna van der Breggen has won gold in the women's road race after out-sprinting Sweden's Emma Johansson at the end of the 141km race. Elisa Longo Borghini was third for Italy.

American Mara Abbott missed out on a place on the podium after she was caught by the chasing pack just 300m from the finish line, while Annemiek van Vleuten was leading up until the 10km mark, when the 33-year-old Dutchwoman suffered a horrific crash.

"It really shook me when I saw Annemiek crashed in the road. I was pretty shocked, I think she crashed hard. I realized I was at the front of the team, so I had to chase. I did it for Annemiek. To see her like that, it's a big shock," van der Breggen said.

SOUTH KOREA TAKE GOLD IN WOMEN'S TEAM ARCHERY

South Korea have won their eighth consecutive gold medal in the women's team archery after they beat Russia, who will take silver, by five set points to one. Chinese Taipei took the bronze medal after they beat Italy in the third-place play-off.

ALL ROWING CALLED OFF FOR THE DAY

The second day of the 2016 Olympic rowing regatta was called off due to problems caused by rough weather, organizers announced.
