    History was made on Day 3 of the the 2016 Olympics as Ibtihaj Muhammad became the first American athlete to wear a hijab before falling to defeat; it took under a minute to score the first judo win, and the first medal was going to be awarded in rugby in nearly 100 years. 

    Here are some notable statistics from Monday's competitions in Rio:

    1: Ibtihaj Muhammad became the first American to wear a hijab in the Olympics, but the New Jersey native but failed to advance to the quarterfinals. Two other Americans were also eliminated. Read more.

    5: The place the United States men's gymnastics team finished, for the second straight Olympics. The lackluster end came despite a strong rally on the parallel bars. Japan took the gold.

    28: Aruna Quadri, who will celebrate his 28th birthday tomorrow, celebrated early by becoming the first player representing an African nation to make it into an Olympic table tennis quarterfinal, a historic accomplishment that came with his defeat of fan favorite (and Germany’s flag bearer) Timo Boll. Tomorrow at 9:30pm, Quadri will take on No. 1 Ma Long (CHN) for a chance at the semifinals.

    46: The number of seconds it took for Brazil's Rafaela Silva to score the first judo win on Monday. In a first-round match against Germany's Miryam Roper, Silva went out quickly on the offensive and within 15 seconds flipped Roper once to score.

    103: Total points scored by the U.S. women's basketball team, the second time in as many games they've passed the century mark. The women beat Spain, 103-63, on Monday, one day after beating Senegal 121-56. Read more.
