Full medal count for Team USA in Tokyo

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are underway, and the United States is looking to add more hardware to an already extensive collection. The U.S. is the all-time leader in Olympic medals with nearly 3,000 — more than double the following closest country — but a few more awards never hurt. While the United States was projected to dominate the competition in Tokyo, some of the events slipped out of reach, with medals going to other countries. Softball hoped to avenge its loss to Japan in the Olympic gold-medal game 13 years ago but had to settle for silver. Nyjah Huston, regarded as the best skateboarder globally and favored gold medalist, finished seventh out of eight athletes in the men’s street finals.

Still, the United States has collected a handful of memorable medals. Team USA has three medals (2 gold, one bronze) in three of the newest Olympic events: 3×3 basketball, skateboarding, and surfing. Jessica Parratto and Delaney Schnell won the United States’ first-ever medal in women’s synchronized diving. Katie Ledecky won two gold medals, winning the inaugural women’s 1,500-meter freestyle race and capping her Olympics with victory in the 800-meter freestyle.
