  • Team USA, whose 600-plus athletes competed in hundreds of events over 19 whirlwind days here, staged a thrilling comeback in the final hours of the 2020 Olympics to top the gold medal table for the third Summer Games in a row.
  • Excluding host countries, the U.S. has now topped both the overall medal table and the gold medal table at every Summer Olympics since it hosted the Games in Atlanta in 1996.
Lesson learned, Sporting infrastructure across the U.S. is fundamental   
    • Sporting infrastructure across the U.S. contributes to those support systems, but no broad trends explain quadrennial fluctuations in the medal count. Success, or a lack thereof, in track and field isn’t connected to success in wrestling, or archery, or swimming, or really any other sport.
                Lesson learned, A hodgepodge of disappointing results
                  • No American man won an individual gold in track events. It’s the first time they’ve been shut out in modern Olympic history.
                  • The U.S. baseball and softball teams both settled for silver in their return to the Games. Women’s soccer lost in the semifinals of their competition to Canada. The women’s rowing eight fell short.
                  • No U.S. skateboarders won gold in their sport’s Olympics debut.
                  • The U.S. topped the swimming medal table, but won 11 golds at the Tokyo Aquatics Center instead of the 14-15 that some had projected.
                  • Simone Biles had been expected to win up to five golds, and with Sunisa Lee a contender on bars, the U.S. women had a chance to sweep the six gymnastics events. Instead, Biles struggled with mental health and the “twisties,” and Americans (Lee and Jade Carey) only won two of the six.
