Team USA sprinted for the gold, in some ways literally, for the last few games of the Tokyo Olympics to catch up to China in gold medal count. Both the women and men teams won gold for the 4×400-meter relays, with the women’s relay capping Allyson Felix’s historical Olympic career as the most decorated American Olympian in track & field.

Nelly Korda ended a gold medal draught for Team USA, winning gold in women’s individual golf for the first time since 1900. The men’s basketball team bought home their 16th gold medal with their win against France.
