Felix makes US Olympic history




Allyson Felix became the most decorated American track and field Olympian in history as India won their first-ever athletics gold and Kevin Durant’s USA extended their men’s basketball reign Elsewhere, with 34 golds up for grabs, Brazil beat Spain 2-1 to become men’s football champions and world number one Nelly Korda gave the Americans the women’s golf title to go with the men’s.

With just a handful of events remaining at the Games in Japan, including the men’s marathon, China lead the way on 38 golds, with the United States second on 36 and Japan on 27.
