US Triumphs at Olympics Edging out China for Most Gold Medals

The US managed to edge out arch-rival China at the last minute at the Tokyo Olympics to bring home the most gold medals.

As The Daily Wire reports:

You can put it on the board. America wins again.

Entering the final day of the Tokyo Olympics, the U.S.A was well ahead in total medals won by a country. They would finish with 113 medals total, with China a distant second at 88. It was the second-most at an Olympics since 1984 for the American squad.

And while total medals won is a nice achievement, the grand prize of any Olympiad is the gold medal count. Silver and bronze medals are incredible achievements, but being the best in the world means being at the top of the leaderboard in the most important categories.

The U.S. entered the day behind China in the gold-medal race, with China up 38-36. It set up a photo finish.

It’s nice to see that America still hasn’t entirely lost its edge against Communist regimes.

Didn’t watch as the news spread the word about the woke idiots on international display. They should all lose the right to participate in any sports at any level. Hateful turds!

How many of the US gold medals were won by those who think China is a better country than the United States of America. I could not care less about the Olympics and most of those that participate like the US Women’s soccer team, any of the POSs that turned their back on the national anthem, any of the POSs that formed Xs with their arms, any of the POSs that kneeled during the national anthem. Include their medals in the China count. They will be well welcomed in China in two years. What a joke. F the US Olympic Committee.

Agree with you completely on those who showed contempt for the country that paid to send them to represent that same country. Luckily those were the very few where most who went whether they medaled or not, represented the USA very proudly.

Subsequentially our USWNT should consider representing some other nation, i.e.., Kenya,
perhaps. It may be U.S. in name, but it is certainly anti-U.s in behavior. Rapinoe is disgusting.

How many did we win by sending men pretending to be women? (Reminiscent of the old Soviet Union’s cheating techniques.) I am not interested in winning by cheating!

I believe very strongly that we should never send athletes to the Olympics or any world sports event for that matter, to represent the US if they don’t respect and honor the US Flag that symbolize our beloved country and what all our heroes and many of our patriotic forefathers have sacrificed and died for. That should be made the first criteria for qualification. Or else, they simply don’t have any business or reason at all to wear a US uniform.

Don’t condemn all because of the few who should be stripped of medals or participating in ongoing or future Olympics. Those who disrespect the country they represent should be suspended immediately and any metals returned to the Olympic committee automatic forfeiture. For those who contended lawfully and love the best country anywhere in the world congratulations for a job well done you have the respect of the American people
