Team USA took home more golds in swimming on the eighth day of the Tokyo Olympics, with swimming powerhouse Katie Ledecky wrapping up her second gold – and fourth medal – at the Tokyo Olympics. She is now one medal away from tying the all-time medal count for a U.S. female swimmer.

Kevin Durant surpassed Carmelo Anthony to become the all-time leading scorer for a U.S. basketball team at the Olympics. Durant surpassed Anthony’s 336 points record, adding to the 119-84 point game win against the Czech Republic.

Jamaica swept the Women’s 100m for gold, silver and bronze, with gold medalist Elaine Thompson-Herah surpassing silver medalist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce’s title as the fastest woman alive.
