TOKYO – Sunday, August 1, 2021, 8:01 p.m.
Swimming competitions have been completed at the Olympics in Tokyo.
The top of the medal table shows the usual picture: America ranks first in swimming. However, this time the fight for the top spot is exciting because the American team eventually wins short.
Swimmers from the United States won 11 gold medals. Caleb Tressel plays a key role in this with five gold medals (3 in singles). Australia can celebrate nine gold medals and No. 2. The No. 1 medal hamster in Australia is Emma McCann with four gold medals with seven medals!
With a total of 30 medals, the United States is clearly the No. 1 in terms of numbers.
Ten nations have won at least one gold medal in 35 results and at least one podium in 21. Felix Abeck was 0.13 seconds short of 400m, otherwise Austria would have been included.
The United States is ranked No. 1 for the eighth time in a row
This is the eighth victory of the United States in the medal classification, the last time US troops were intercepted by the GDR in Seoul in 1988. However, three decisions were made twice in London in 2012 and twice in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, 16 times less than US gold.
This time the Americans missed the long crawl relay. The women still had silver, but the men who finished fourth for the first time in the Olympic relay did not have an American medal.
