Olympics Highlights: The U.S. Won Four More Medals Yesterday

The U.S. snagged four more medals at the Tokyo Olympics on Monday, and three were gold.

Skeet shooters Amber English and Vincent Hancock won two of those golds . . . and the men’s swim team won the 4-by-100-meter freestyle relay.  Meanwhile, Katie Ledecky was hoping for gold in the women’s 400-meter freestyle, but had to settle for silver.  Ariarne Titmus of Australia beat her by less than a second.

After day three, we’re still in second place in the overall medal count.  Here’s where things stand heading into Tuesday . . .
