Team USA Overtakes China In Gold Medals At Tokyo Olympics

Videos by OutKick

Team USA edged out second-place Team China in total gold medals earned at the Tokyo Olympic Games, their third consecutive Games nabbing the most golden honors. USA also beat China in total medals, 113 to 88. Japan came in third place with a total count of 58.

The 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games finally came to an end this weekend after the events faced postponement in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The summer festivities began with a lethargic effort from Team USA, which let China get out to an early lead in the gold medal count. However, a late push from Team USA — sparked by swimmer Caeleb Dressel, who earned five Olympic gold medals — secured the count.

Team USA Women’s Basketball defeated Japan, 90-75, late in the Games to win gold. The Men’s Basketball team also scored gold at the Olympics after their win against France, 87-82, on Friday night.

The United States won their pursuit for gold by only one medal over China, 39 to 38. America also earned 41 silver and 33 bronze medals in Tokyo, which makes these Games America’s second-best Summer Olympic games performance since the ’88 Games in Rio (121).

While some doubted the notion of American exceptionalism at the start of the Olympic Games, the United States of America proved the haters wrong once again. Team USA still remains a beacon of freedom and performance across the globe for runner-up regimes to look to for inspiration.

  1. Way to go Team USA 🇺🇸. While their were traders and facist rooting against America. Real Americans had your back the WHOLE TIME. You won’t find REAL AMERICANS in Hungary.

    I especially want to thank Team USA 🇺🇸 basketball for bringing home the Gold and for giving US a reason to give a GIANT MIDDLE FINGER to the ” establishment “. We wouldn’t have it all without that motivation.

    Now we get to walk around saying ” Talk that Dbap shit now”….. We won and the HATERS LOST.

  2. Nobody cares about the Olympics or bouncy-ball or the National Felon League any more. All the monkey business from the activists turned off the vast majority of America with their “look at me” antics. Just remember when you see those “racial equity” protests:

    13% of the population commits 53% of the murders and FAR exceeds 13% in EVERY category of violent crime per FBI Uniform Crime Reports Table 43a.

    bLM caused $2 billion in damages, David Dorn was murdered, they burned a police station and a Wendy’s and vandalized courthouses and numerous businesses because a supposedly racist (never any evidence of that) cop was going to get away with (he didn’t) participating in the drug-induced death of a violent felon. “Mostly peaceful” super-spreader protests in the middle of a pandemic.

    The supposedly “systemically racist” country elected, and re-elected, a black President. Systemic racism? Define it… they never can. Give 3 specific examples of it… they never can.

    They are trying to brainwash our kids into believing that White people are oppressors.

    Don’t take any shit from those brainwashed clowns.

    • So that means you and MAGA are coming to take over sports? You’re finally going to fulfill the wish of your leader who’s first batch of real men were SOUNDLY DEFEATED by Jesse REAL AMERICAN Owen’s? Like I’ve said many times over ” Jesse Owen’s didn’t prove anything we already didn’t know”… World stage tells no lies…We ALL get to see the truth….

      • The tragic part is, the more you see Black and Hispanic men and women overrepresenting their population #’s in professional athletics, the more you know there are thousands upon thousands of minority children who didn’t make the pro’s and invested way too much time in a game. You hear much about those high school stars that couldn’t cut it in D1 or D2? Didn’t think so. It’s actually a tragedy happening before our very eyes and no one will talk about it. You know that teacher who told the swimmer to focus on academics (which was probably a lie by the swimmer anyway)? The teacher was right. She was right 99.9% of the time, so good on that teacher. I recommend you start rooting to see more white people up there at wide receiver because you clearly hate white people and that would be a good indicator their priorities aren’t straight. Jackass.

        • Thanks James, but you know you are wasting your time trying to show facts to neo racists like Mason – they don’t deal in facts, they deal in personal attacks and emotional outbursts. They are afraid of the facts which is why they run from them instead of having the courage to deal with the systemic problem in their own community that begins with fatherless homes and ends with Criminal Race Theory.
