After a delay of one year, the Tokyo Olympics are finally ongoing. The United States used the upsurge of fourteen medals in Tokyo Olympics award leader board over three days of award events and are second behind Japan, who are the tournament hosts.

The Americans picked up the first six medals of the games in the swimming competition. The only gold champion of the team was Chase Kalisz.

Over the four trials in swimming, the United States got three bronzes and two silvers. The American gold medal drag thanked Anastasija Zolotic, who participated in taekwondo, Will Shaner who took part in men’s shooting, and Lee Kiefer who played her part in the fencing event for women.

The United States won ten medals across the four sports. Anastasija and Lee Kiefer were added to the American Olympic books of records for their great achievements in the world of sports.

Anastasija set history for becoming the first American woman to gain Olympic gold in the game, while Kiefer became the first American winner in the women’s fencing single foil occasion.

Kiefer also became the first American woman to win an award of any kind on occasion. The other two individuals who won during the swimming competition were Hali Flickinger and Emma Weyant who took bronze and silver medals.

A lady named Maggie took the first gold medal for the United States at the swimming competition with a win in the hundred meters butterfly for women.


The United States women have secured all six of their games over the first three days of basketball’s first appearance at the Olympics. Kelsey Plum closed out the achievement of the day for the U.S people by spotting up behind the curve for the sport winning 2-indicator in a 21-19 win over China. 

On the first day of the Tokyo Olympics, United States did not get any medal. But on the second and third days, swimmers got two more medals. The first was a gold medal in the 400 meters freestyle relay for men, and the second award was silver from Katie Ledecky in the 400 meters race for women.

The organizers of the Olympics decided to run both the finals for men and women one day rather than running them on different days. Nevertheless, the United States women defeated Italy in basketball. The U.S. had won six games in three consecutive days.

Every day of the last two versions of the Tokyo Olympics, the men’s group from the United States won Silver medals. Ellison said that walking away without a prize was not a reality for their team. It would be like gymnast Simone Biles failing to cut the all-inclusive, Ellison added.


After a grand lightweight final alongside Georgia’s Lasha Shavdatuashvili, Judo star Shohei Ono has gained his second Olympic gold award.

Shohei has not lost any judo game since 2015, but that did not put Shavdatuashvilli off; he came into the match with no fear.

Another gold medal winner of judo at the Tokyo Olympics is Nora Gjakova, who achieved a great win over Sarah Leonie Cysique from France in the women’s fifty-seven-kilogram division.

Distria Krasniqi was joined by Gjakova, who won gold as the 2nd and 3rd gold winners in Olympics history. Gjakova became the first judo contestant to defeat the home nation’s competitor before the final. She got the final with an outrageous game win over Japan’s Tsukasa Yoshida.

However, Yoshida united in claiming a bronze medal. The person who won the other bronze went by the name Jessica Klimkait.


The first skeet shooter to win three Olympic gold medals was Vincent Hancock. Vincent gave the Americans a swish after Amber English accomplished the women’s event.

Slovenia’s Benjamin Savsek has attained the canoe slalom for men ahead of the German’s Sideris Tasiadis and Czech Republic’s Lukas Rohan on Monday.

Benjamin is ranked position seven in the whole world. He saw his victory coming after a fresh run with no interval penalties. Sideris, ranked position one globally and awarded silver in 2012, was a distant slower than Benjamin.

Lukas was off the lead because his run encompassed a gate touch and a penalty of two seconds.

At the Tokyo Aquatics Centre, Matty Lee and Britain’s Tom Daley won gold in ten meters matched diving for men. Tom and Matty closed their victory with a vivid last dive and received one perfect ten from the judges. Tom had claimed a pair of bronze medals earlier, but this was his first Olympic gold win. 


The 1,500 meters freestyle for women has made its Olympic first appearance at the Centre of Tokyo Aquatics.

For instance, individuals who swim long distances, such as Katie Ledecky, have been given another opportunity to claim an award because an event for women has been added to the Tokyo Olympics.

Dresel Caeleb led off an American win in the 400 meters freestyle relay for men. Dresel won six medals for swimming at the Tokyo Games. It was a big surprise for the U.S. people since they got a lead they never expected. The United States won the third-fastest relay in history for three minutes.

Vincent Hancock made an Olympic record by winning a gold medal in the skeet final for men at the Shooting Range of Asaka. Hancock also added a third award to his collection of honours.

He finished the game with fifty-nine hits and missed only one, getting at the top of Jesper Hansen from Denmark, who had fifty-five hits and Kuwait’s Abdullah, who had forty-six hits.
