On Day 4 of the Olympics, the U.S. was tied with Italy, China and Australia for the lead with three gold medals. A Sports Illustrated Olympic Games preview forecasted that the U.S. and China would each finish with an Olympic-best Gold Medal count of 45. SI experts also predicted the U.S. as the overall winner with 118 medals.
Team USA is poised to make a clean sweep of the 2016 Olympics. They are winning gold medal after gold medal in event after event. The US spends a lot of money to support their best athletes and this clearly pays off when we enter athletic competitions and win a lot of awards.
The US is usually at least close to the top in gold medals, if not the winner. I think we will win the most gold medals this year, and if not we will win the most medals overall. Since there are also silver and bronze medals there are a lot of chances to win!
No, I do not believe that the USA will finish with the most gold medals in the 2016 Olympics. Other countries such as china and Japan always have great athletes. The fact that one Olympian has won his first gold medal does not mean that the USA will win the most gold medals in the Olympics.
