Jessica Springsteen, daughter of New Jersey rock icon Bruce Springsteen, just missed qualifying for the individual final in equestrian jumping in the Tokyo Olympics by one spot.

The Boss' 29-year-old daughter, who grew up on a farm in Colts Neck and has been riding horses since she was a little girl, finished in a tie for 31st place in her debut appearance in the quadrennial event. Only the top 30 and those ties advance to the finals.

Springsteen and her horse, Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, got hit with four penalties and clipped a pole at the end of their run.

She still has a chance to compete in the team jumping event, which begins on Thursday.

Meantime, Trenton native Athing Mu won the gold at the Tokyo Olympics this morning following her performance in the Women's 800 meters. The 19-year-old crossed the finished line in 1:55:21 to break the American record.

Mu now joins Madeline Manning-Mims as the only two American women to ever win Olympic gold in the 800 meters. Manning-Mims did it 53 years ago at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.

Sexy Pics of Olympian Swimmer, Caeleb Dressel

I am obsessed with Caeleb Dressel and I already miss seeing him on tv everyday since the Tokyo Olympics are slowly coming to a close. It's not just because he is extremely hot, it's because he is humble and a fantastic athlete.

Caeleb is a 24 year old freestyle and butterfly swimmer from Florida and is not a stranger to the Olympics or winning gold medals. He's had a successful swimming career including when he attended the University of Florida.

He's and his wife, Meghan trained together in high school and Caeleb proposed to her in 2019. In know he's a married man, and hey, I'm a married woman. So I am respectfully appreciating this handsome man and hopefully you will too.
