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.
