RIO DE JANEIRO -- Its promoted as a party, the loud music and dancing in the crowd as synonymous with rugby sevens as the free-running attacking movements and copious tries.A dozen womens teams made a dent on the Olympics in the debut of the abbreviated rugby format on Saturday, showing they could tackle just about anything.After the first day of Olympic rugby competition in 92 years, leading contenders New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Britain had ensured qualification for the quarterfinals, each with a game to spare.Portia Woodman scored a hat trick of tries in New Zealands opening 52-0 win against Kenya and added another in the 31-5 win over Spain. Her teammate Kayla McAlister celebrated her birthday with two tries in each game.Charlotte Caslick matched Woodmans hat trick, scoring three tries in Australias 53-0 win over Colombia, and added another solo effort in the 36-0 win over Fiji, which capped off the first day of competition. Bianca Farella had two tries in each of Canadas victories -- 45-0 against Japan and 38-0 against Brazil -- to move into a share of the try-scoring standings. The Canadians will play Britain on Sunday to determine the top spot in Pool C.Woodman scored in the first minute three times in four halves, missing a fourth try when she dropped the ball only meters from the tryline.That little fumble there doesnt happen very often, said Woodman, the leading tryscorer in the womens world series, but just got to scratch that and get on with it again.Fiji opened with a 12-7 win against the United States and produced the biggest hit of the day when Lavenia Tinais big tackle completely shut down a promising American counter-attack in the last minute. The U.S. rallied with 48-0 win over Colombia to keep its chances of progressing alive ahead of a daunting last group match against world series champion Australia.There was no doubt among the players about womens rugby belonging at the Olympics. Woodman pointed to the kiwi flags in the crowd and said the experience was awesome.U.S. forward Kathryn Johnson said the feeling is pretty insane.Its kind of unreal how much this could help grow the game -- especially womens sports, Johnson said. Having a full-contact game in the Olympics is pretty amazing.The crowd grew for Brazils games in both sessions, but not even the singing, samba-dancing fans could lift the host team. A dropped goal just before halftime triggered celebrations in the 29-3 opening loss to Britain -- Brazils only points of the day.When Karen Paquin scored for Canada in the first minute of the second game, it was greeted by loud boos from yellow-clad Brazilian fans behind the goalposts. When Paquin reached over to score in the corner just before halftime, the crowd reaction was more subdued.France advanced with two wins, posting some early historic marks. Camille Grassineau crossing for the first try and the French team registering the first win in Olympic rugby sevens -- 24-7 against Spain.World Rugby chief executive Brett Gosper said it was a good start for Olympic sevens, and ticket sales were expected to average around 70 percent across the six days of the womens and mens tournaments.Everything is working very well. The players have turned up and are playing a great brand of rugby, Gosper said.

Nico Rosberg says his victory at the Belgian Grand Prix was made a little easier without having to battle recovering Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.With Hamilton starting from the back row of the grid after incurring a huge grid penalty for a series of power unit changes throughout the weekend, Rosberg was left relatively unchallenged throughout as he led from start to finish on his way to claiming his sixth win of the season and his first victory in Belgium, ahead of Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo and Hamilton.I just had an awesome car out there and Lewis was not there to battle it out so that made it a less-difficult weekend, Rosberg said.Its been great of course to get the win today and its a special track, but Lewis starting at the back made it a little easier this weekend. Im sure hes going to be back in Monza and its going to be a big battle as always.Rosberg believes other than the start, a red-flag period to repair barrier damage after a hefty shunt for Renaults Kevin Magnussen at Eau Rouge and subsequent safety car restart, he had the race under control.It wasnt the toughest race of course because Lewis wasnt there, thatts for sure.dddddddddddd Of course everything still needs to come together. The start is critical and with the red flag and everything it becomes a bit more complicated and messy.But once I got ahead I got a little bit of pressure from Daniel [Ricciardo] in the second stint, because he was on the soft tyre, but after that I really had good control on everything.The German had hoped to make the most of his opportunity to eek into Hamiltons championship lead, which was 19 points heading into the grand prix. While Rosberg did everything he needed to do by winning in Spa, Hamiltons third place finish means the gap between both drivers stands at nine points ahead of next weekends Italian Grand Prix.Asked whether he was disappointed not to have made a bigger indent into Hamiltons points advantage, Rosberg says he sees no reason to feel disheartened.Its not disappointing, Im happy with today. Im happy to have won the race, its been a great weekend for me, thats it, and fair play to Lewis he did a good job. ' ' '
