Team USA medal count: Full list of every United States medal at the Tokyo Olympics

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are underway and the United States is looking to add more hardware to an already extensive collection. The U.S. is the all-time leader in Olympic medals with nearly 3,000 — more than double the next closest country — but a few more medals never hurt.

While the United States was projected to dominate the competition in Tokyo, some of the events slipped out of reach, with medals going to other countries.

Softball hoped to avenge its loss to Japan in the Olympic gold-medal game from 13 years ago but had to settle for silver. Nyjah Huston, regarded as the best skateboarder in the world and favored gold medalist, finished seventh out of eight athletes in the men’s street finals.

Still, the United States hascollected a handful of memorable medals. Team USA has three medals (2 gold, 1 bronze) in three of the newest Olympic events: 3×3 basketball, skateboarding and surfing. Jessica Parratto and Delaney Schnell won the United States’ first-ever medal in women’s synchronized diving, and Katie Ledecky won two gold medals, winning the inaugural women’s 1,500-meter freestyle race and capping her Olympics with victory in the 800-meter freestyle.
