The medals race has come to a close.

Team USA got off to a slow start during the Tokyo Summer Olympics, competing in five of the seven available events on the first day, but winning zero medals. It marked the United States' worst start to the Summer Games since the 1972 Munich Games.

After the unusual start, things turned the following morning, with America picking up its first medals early on day two thanks to swimmers Chase Kalisz and Jay Litherland — who won gold and silver, respectively, in the men's 400m individual medley.

The U.S. has a long history of winning big at the Summer Games, and this year was no exception.

As the Olympics came to a close on Sunday, the U.S. finished with a total of 113 medals, more than any other country, as well as 39 golds, just narrowly beating out China's 38 gold medals. China trailed not too far behind in the overall medal count with a total of 88. The Russian Olympic Committee followed in third with 71 medals, and host country Japan has 58.

Team USA previously made history in 2016, picking up a record-breaking 121 medals — and finishing at the top of the overall medal chart for the sixth consecutive Games.
