In the final hours of the Tokyo Olympics, the United States rallied to overtake China for the most gold medals, topping the rest of the world in gold for the third consecutive Summer Games.

With the U.S. Women’s Volleyball team capturing its first-ever gold medal, Team USA clinched the gold-medal count with 39. That is lower than the 46 golds it took home in the Rio de Janeiro and London games respectively but still is something to show off.

The U.S. also had 41 silver and 33 bronze medals. 

The Americans also claimed the top spot in the overall count in Tokyo with 113 medals, the second-most since the 1988 Games in Rio. The U.S. has not lost the overall medal count since the 1992 Games in Barcelona.

China finished second in the overall count with 88 medals and host Japan was third with 58, including 27 gold medals.
