Team USA’s medal tally now stands at 20 The 11 medals already won by American women is their second-highest Olympic total in history, behind only the boycotted 1984 Games, when American women won 16 medals. It is one more than the 10 won in 1992. Seven medals is the biggest single-day medal haul since the U.S. won nine medals on August 6, 1992, when six finals were contested.

richards.jpgLONDON — In the showcase event of the Olympic Games, USA and Jamaica had it out in the fastest 100 meters in Olympic history, not long after Sanya Richards-Ross became only the second American to win the Olympic women’s 400m Sunday night at the Olympic Stadium.

Richards-Ross Rules
Showing the poise she has waited four years to use to her advantage, Richards-Ross (Austin, Texas), the world’s top 400 meter runner, claimed the 400m Olympic gold medal she had long coveted. With it, the 2008 bronze medalist and 2009 world champion joined Hall of Famer Valerie Brisco-Hooks (1984) as the only American to win the event at the Olympic Games.

flanagan.jpgLONDON – Team USA’s Shalane Flanagan and Kara Goucher of Portland, Ore. finished within 16 seconds of one another as they crossed the finish line in 10th and 11th place, respectively, in the Olympic women’s marathon during a rainy Sunday morning.

The race was won in an Olympic record of 2:23:07 by Ethiopia’s Tiki Gelana, who pulled ahead of runner-up Priscah Jeptoo of Kenya over the final half mile. Jeptoo finished in 2:23:12, with Tatyana Petrova Arkhipova of Russia taking third in 2:23:29.

Flanagan and Goucher positioned themselves at or near the front of the large lead pack from the start of the race, winding through the narrow, rain-soaked street of London.

rupp.jpgLONDON — Not since Billy Mills’ storied sprint to win the 1964 Olympic Games has an American man graced the podium of the men’s 10,000 meters. That changed Saturday night at Olympic Stadium when Galen Rupp made his own dash into history to take second in the 10km, highlighting a night that also saw Carmelita Jeter win a silver medal, Will Claye a bronze and the host Great Britain three golds.

Placing second in 27:30.90, Rupp (Portland, Ore.) became just the third U.S. man ever to win an Olympic medal in the event, after Mills’ gold and a silver by Lewis Tewanina in 1912. It was also the fastest time ever by an American at the Games. Rupp’s training partner, world champion Mo Farah of Great Britain, won in 27:30.42 to give coach Alberto Salazar a 1-2 punch of his own.

Can Team USA add to medal count from Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008?

By Ryan Lamppa, Running USA wire

London will host the Olympics for a record third time, and the 2012 U.S. Olympic distance team - led by two-time Olympic 1500 meter medalist Bernard Lagat, 2004 Olympic Marathon silver medalist Meb Keflezighi and 2008 Olympic 10,000m bronze medalist Shalane Flanagan - is perhaps the deepest ever for the Games. The London team has plenty of veterans, including the above, such as past Olympians Abdi Abdirahman (fourth team), Dathan Ritzenhein (third team), Galen Rupp (second team), Ryan Hall (second), Kara Goucher (second), Matt Tegenkamp (second), Jenny Simpson (second), Andrew Wheating (second), Shannon Rowbury (second), Leo Manzano (second) and Lopez Lomong (second) and rising star and new U.S. steeple record holder Evan Jager.
