Japan has won 10, the United States 9, and China 8 gold medals in the Tokyo Olympics.

The home team has taken the lead in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics in Japan. The score table 
had been in turmoil since Tuesday morning.

In the morning swimming, the United States took the lead by winning a gold medal, but in 
the women's 10m dive platform women's synchronized, Chen Zhui and Zhang Jigai won gold 
medals to put their team at the top of the table in olympics.

Jessico Parato and Danley Scanny of the United States won silver and Agundej Garcia and
Oroja Lojo Alejandra of Mexico won bronze. Japan has taken the lead in the table with 
10 gold medals by defeating the title contender USA in the evening softball.

The United States suffered a major blow on Tuesday. Simon Wiles Vault, the team's most 
important player, fell ill and lost to the United States for the first time in 11 years 
in the women's gymnastics team event.
Wiles, who had previously won five gold medals at the Rio Olympics, was expected to win
at least four or five gold medals this time around. The doctors of the American team 
have not made it official about him. Maybe the next day he was expected to return to the 
game. The Russian Olympic Committee won the gold medal after Wiles was eliminated from the 
event. The United States was limited to silver medals. Britain wins bronze.
Japan topped the list with 10 gold medals as all the medals were finalized on Tuesday. 
The United States is second with nine golds and China is third with nine golds.

The American swimming team was relieved after Lady Jacoby, the first American swimmer 
to be selected for the Olympics from the US state of Alaska, won a gold medal.
The U.S. swimming team was expected to be without a gold medal on Tuesday as it was 
in poor condition. In the men's 200m freestyle, Britain's Tom Dion won gold and Duncat 
Scott won silver. Brazil's Fernando Sefer won bronze.
In the women's 100m backstroke, Australia's Kelly McConn won gold and Canada's Kelly 
Mass won silver. Reagan Smith of the United States won the bronze medal.
In the men's 100m backstroke, Yageni Rylov of the Russian Olympics Committee won gold 
and Clement Klemenesov of the same team won silver. Defending champion Yarn Murphy
 was limited to a bronze medal.
The women's finalist also competed in the 100m breaststroke as a former winner,
 world champion and world record holder Lily King of the United States. After 
performing poorly from the first round, she was restricted to the bronze medal 
in the final on Tuesday.
South Africa's Tatiana Sonmakar, who set an Olympics record in the first round,
 took the lead from the start, but was eventually overtaken by 17-year-old Jacobie.
