- Welcome back to Beyond Gold, where we catch you up on everything you might have missed from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. And while you might be just getting your Saturday going, Team USA has been hard at work.

Let's get it started in the pool, where Caeleb Dressel broke his own world record in the one hundred meter butterfly, clocking in with a time of 49.45 seconds. The 24-year-old led throughout the entire event in capturing his third gold medal of the games.

And then there was Katie Ledecky, who closed out her time in Tokyo with a gold medal in the 800 meter freestyle, outlasting rival Ariarne Titmus of Australia, who finished a close second to pick up a silver in the event. With the win, Ledecky became the first women's swimmer to win six individual gold medals in her career. The living legend is leaving the 2020 summer games with two golds and two silvers and has already announced that she plans to compete in 2024.

Speaking of living legends, USA Gymnastics released the following statement about Simone Biles. After further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and uneven bars. She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam. We remain in awe of Simone, who continues to handle the situation with courage and grace, and all of the athletes who have stepped up during these unexpected circumstances.

In other news from around the games, Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the mixed doubles bronze match with a left shoulder injury. The announcement comes on the heels of brutal losses to Germany's Alexander Zverev in the men's singles semi-final and then to Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta in the bronze medal match. A visibly frustrated Djokovic exits the games without a medal for the third straight Olympics and with his bid for a Golden Slam spoiled as well.

Now on to the track, where Team Jamaica absolutely dominated in a clean sweep of the women's 100 meter final. It was Elaine Thompson-Herah going for gold while setting a new world record of 10.61 seconds, closely followed by teammates Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson, who earned the silver and bronze, respectively. And in the first ever 4x400 meter mixed relay event, it was Poland who shocked the world while winning gold over the Dominican Republic, who took silver, and Team USA, who took home the bronze.

As for the US men's basketball team, they finally delivered the lopsided win that many Americans have been waiting for as they trounced the Czech Republic 119:84. Although the US found themselves down seven after the first quarter, Gregg Popovich's squad blew the game out of proportion in the second half behind strong team D and incredible shooting performances from Kevin Durant and Jayson Tatum, who combined for 50 points as Durant became the top Olympic scorer in US men's basketball history.

With the win, the Americans move on to the final eight, continuing their pursuit of a fourth consecutive Olympic gold medal. With gold medals on the mind, let's take a look at the medal count standings.

As you can see, China continues to pull away from Japan and the US in total gold medals and is currently tied with the US in total medal count.
