Description

Throwing heavy objects and splashing around in a pool were the keys to Team USA success at the Summer Olympics on Friday, adding to their medal count and keeping the slimmest of leads over China. After three more gold medals in swimming -- including yet another won by Michael Phelps in the 100m fly, his last-ever individual event -- the United States has 21 golds, more medals than all but four countries have total. Meanwhile, Ethiopia got on the board with its first medal, a gold in women's 10,000m. At the bottom, there's Uzbekistan, which has one bronze medal, in men's Judo -60kg. It was one of two bronzes awarded in the event, which kinda makes it seem like Uzbekistan was giving a participation award. "Thanks for trying your best, Uzbeky!"
