The Olympic Gymnastics and Track & Field trials ended recently. Gymnastics and Track & Field are two areas where the USA could sweep through with various medals.

In athletics, Usain Bolt’s retirement has opened up a huge space for the next big sprinter to emerge. And the USA has teenagers like Erriyon Knighton, who are really fast and are smashing Bolt’s records.

Moreover, there are many medal prospects in other areas as well. In gymnastics, the USA already had a strong team before and now it is even more potent despite its relatively young age and is being led by Simone Biles.
