1972 — The Dallas Cowboys beat the College All-Stars in Chicago 20-7.

1984 — The Summer Olympics open in Los Angeles with a record 140 nations competing. The Soviet Union and 13 Communist allies, including Cuba and East Germany, boycott the games.

1987 — Angel Cordero Jr. becomes the fourth U.S. jockey to win 6,000 races when he rides Lost Kitty to victory at Monmouth Park, N.J.

1991 — Dennis Martinez pitches a perfect game as the Montreal Expos beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-0.

1992 — American Mike Barrowman sets a world record in winning the 200-meter breaststroke, and Russian Evgueni Sadovyi becomes the Summer Olympics’ first triple gold medalist, also smashing a world record in the men’s 400-meter freestyle.

1994 — On the night baseball players set an Aug. 12 strike date, Kenny Rogers of the Texas Rangers pitches a perfect game for a 4-0 victory over California.

2000 — Blaine Wilson, America’s pre-eminent gymnast, wins his fifth straight championship in St. Louis. He becomes the first gymnast to win five straight national titles since George Wheeler did it from 1937-41.

2002 — Lance Armstrong wins his fourth straight Tour de France. His final winning margin over second-place Joseba Beloki of Spain is 7 minutes, 17 seconds, making it Armstrong’s second-biggest victory. The four titles were stripped in 2012 for doping.

2005 — In Montreal at the world championships, Poland’s Otylia Jedrzejczak breaks her own world record in the 200 butterfly. Jedrzejczak’s time of 2:05.61 lowers her mark of 2:05.78 set in Berlin on Aug. 4, 2002.

Biedermann touches in 1:42.00, beating Phelps’ record of 1:42.96 set at last year’s Beijing Olympics. Phelps is a body length behind in his first loss in a major international meet since Ian Crocker beat him in the final of the 100 butterfly at the 2005 worlds.

2011 — Ryan Lochte celebrates the first world record set since high-tech bodysuits were banned 1 1/2 years ago. Lochte edges Michael Phelps in 200-meter individual medley at the world championships at Shanghai. Lochte touches the wall in 1:54.00 to lower his old mark set two years ago in Rome by a tenth of a second.

2012 — China’s Ye Shiwen sets the first world record at the Olympic pool, winning the women’s 400-meter individual medley with a dominant finishing kick. The 16-year-old Ye, trailing American teenager Elizabeth Beisel more than halfway through, pulls away to win in 4:28.43. She beat the mark of 4:29.45 set by Stephanie Rice at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

2013 — Brek Shea scores less than a minute after entering the game as a second-half substitute, giving the United States a 1-0 victory over Panama in the Gold Cup final. It’s the fifth Gold Cup title for the Americans, but their first since 2007.
