2012 London Olympics
The 2012 Summer Olympics in London has earned 46 Gold, 29 Silver, and 29 Bronze Medals for The United States. Yesterday, was the closing ceremony for the Olympics after two long weeks of competing in 302 events. We took home a gold in Boys/Girls Basketball, Girls Soccer, Swimming, Gymnastics, Wrestling, Track & Field, Cycling, Diving, Judo, Rowing, and Tennis.
Girls Beach Volleyball landed both a Gold and Silver Medals for The United States as we competed against each other in the Gold Medal Match. Jennifer Kessy/April Ross competed against Kerri Ross Jennings/ Misty May-Treanor, competed for the Gold. Misty and Kerri hoped to come home with a Gold Medal and succeeded after a very close match, which was a total of two rounds.
US Men’s Basketball team also placed with a Gold Medal after a difficult game with Spain. We played Spain four years ago in Beijing and beating 118-107 them again was a lot more difficult the second time around. The London Summer Olympics 2012 Boys Basketball Game ended 107-100.
We are proud of every athlete who competed this year and ranked the United States at Number 1. Also, a big thank you for all the athletes that competed in all the countries being represented in the Olympics.
