Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings finished off their spectacular Olympic run as a team by winning their third consecutive gold medal.
The United States has 82 medals, 34 gold. Although the Americans have more medals than China (77), the U.S. is second in the standings because China has two more gold medals (36).
The men's basketball team continued to dominate in their quest for the gold medal by cruising to victory over Australia, while Allyson Felix took home the gold in the women's 200-meter final.
