Out of the 69 medals, 32 are gold, 21 silver, and 16 bronze. Interestingly, Chinese athletes defeated USA’s Simone Biles in artistic gymnastics to bag the gold and silver medal. Whereas they also had a medal rush in diving and canoe sprint.

With just four days left USA has 73 medals in account

While the USA might not have the most golds in their tally, their total is above all. American athletes have clinched 73 medals out of which 24 are gold, 28 silver, and 21 bronze.

Team USA has been consistent in winning medals across the board. On the eleventh day, the USA had a gold medal rush only in the wrestling event. Albeit, they also won in artistic gymnastics, cycling, and athletics.
