The United States now lead all countries in the 2012 London Olympics with 37 medals, thanks to the efforts of Team USA's gymnastics and swimming teams Thursday night.
Gabby Douglas won the gold medal in the all-around gymnastics competition, while teammate and Needham native Aly Raisman lost a tiebreaker at third place to see a bronze medal slip away.
Michael Phelps continued his dominance in the pool, this time beating out Team USA rival Ryan Lochte in the 200-meter individual medley. Phelps' 20th medal on Thursday made him the first person to win gold in the same event in three straight Olympic games.
