The US team leads the top 10 medal list of the 2016 Olympics. At the same time American athletes made very strange concessions. For example, the appeal jury allowed the women's part of the US team to run again the qualification of the relay for 4 to 100 meters. This decision was made after the statement of the runner Ellison Felix that the rival pushed her, making Felix unable to pass the baton. On the Web, jokes are already on the topic "next time give the Americans all the gold and let them go home."
