Today was another great day for Team USA. It was the 2nd day of Track and Field competition and swimming competition came to a close.

Women's Singles

Congrads to Serena Williams for bring home the Gold Medal in this event. She is well deserved to earn this medal and a well-accomplished tennis player. She played an excellent match against another great tennis player.

Men's Tennis - Pairs

The Bryan brothers played very well and earned their Gold medals in this event. It was a very close match and well deserved.

Swimming

This is the last post where I will be mentioning anything about swimming for another 4 years. Michael Phelps went out on top with 22 medals overall when he added another Gold medal for the Men's 4x100-meter relay. The Women's team earned another Gold medal as well and broke a world record in the same event.

Cycling

Team USA brought home a Silver medal in the Cycling - Team Pursuit event. They competed against Great Britain, who brought home the Gold medal and set a new World Record for the event. Team USA did very well and were only 0:05 behind GB.

Track and Field

Team USA brought home several medals for several events. Will Claye brought home the Bronze medal in the Men's Long Jump coming behind GBR and AUS. He was only 0.04 meters behind the Silver medalist. Galan Rupp brought home the Silver medal in the 10K coming behind only less than 0:01 behind the Gold medalist. It was an amazing finish to watch. Carmelita Jeter brought home the Silver Medal in the 100-meter Dash in an outstanding performance finishing behind Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce from Jamaica.

Tomorrow's expected to a very exciting day with the Women's Marathon and other Track and Field events taking place including the Men's 100-meter Dash.

Until tomorrow....
