USWNT leave with bronze, US men’s relay disappoints | USA TODAY


USWNT leave Tokyo with bronze and the U.S. men broke a gold medal drought in track and field. Friday features gold medal match in beach volleyball.

Wednesday was filled with glory for Team USA at the track, and Thursday marked the first gold medal in track and field at the Tokyo Olympics for U.S. men. Ryan Crouser set an Olympic record in winning the men's shot put, with teammate Joe Kovacs taking silver.

However, there was disappointment as well when the men's 4×100 relay team finished sixth in their semifinal heat and did not qualify for the final. In addition, the favorite in the men's 110-meter hurdles — American Grant Holloway — was upset in the final. He hung on for the silver.

  1. Even when they have the best runners they don’t seems to practice batton changing, this performance is to be expected of them anyway, look like some big ego in camp.

  2. Carl Lewis need to shut his clap.What,Americans not supposed to loose. Why not give credit to the other teams for running a great race. If you don’t practice and execute, then that’s the result you’re going to get. These guys are extremely disappointed they let themselves and others down.Bottom line, like many sports , other teams have gotten better. Carl, if you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything. Why don’t you coach the team. Negativity breads negativity.

    1. Bapbapbap bapbapbap bapbapbap bapbapbap well said I can delete my post.
      Carl Lewis is like the cheerleaders who kill for position on the team. It takes a special quality to make the USA team Carl is such an embarrassment…as a sports mom do you know how painful it is for mom to hear all these degrading comments about our sons 🇯🇲❤️❤️

    2. Obviously it needed to be said if the outcome was America not qualifying for the finals also it’s spelt lose not that hard

  3. Carl Lewis needs to be quiet they selected the best…
    FYI:🇯🇲❤️❤️😁400m winners Jamaican gold and silver

    🤔Felix who?
    Those rivals won’t even medal so they’ll be even.
    Love Jamaica bad 🇯🇲🇯🇲🎊❤️❤️😁

  4. Take a look at all the jamaican relays from Marlene ottey time until now and , tell me, what year date and time Jamaica as ever drop the baton get your facts straight before you open your big mouth. The year when Jamaica did not finish the last ancor leg they did not drop the baton. Veronica did not receive the baton into her hand.

  5. Holloway did not narrowly lose the gold, he narrowly won the silver. Parchment was the clear gold medalist but you need a microscope to see who really won the silver 😂🤪

  6. He narrowly won the silver. The gold medalist was clear as day light 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲🥇🥇
