It was part of a seven-medal showing for the United States on Wednesday. Aries Merritt and Jason Richardson finished 1-2 in the 110-meter hurdles; Brittney Reese took the gold and Janay DeLoach added a bronze in the long jump; and Lashinda Demus was the silver medalist in the 400-meter hurdles.
The U.S. heads into the last four days of the Olympics with 20 medals in track and field, 10 short of its "Project 30" goal for the London Games.
"We are always aware of what the medal count is," Richardson said. "I know (we) can ... let the world know the Americans are the best track and field country."
