So far, so good.
The 2012 Olympics have been quite successful for the USA by just about anyone's standards. Currently, the USA is tied with China for the overall lead in the medal count, each country having 23 medals right now.
The USA is winning many of the events they were expected to win.
The swimming team is doing, well, swimmingly. Michael Phelps has solidified his status as the greatest swimmer ever as he has now captured his 19th Olympic medal, an all-time record. On the women's side of the pool, Missy Franklin, all of 17 years old, has emerged as the rising star for team USA.
The women's gymnastics team was a huge favorite to win their event and they did not disappoint.
Vincent Hancock was expected to win men's skeet shooting and he had no real problems accomplishing that.
With the USA off to such a good start, it is only natural to look forward a bit to try and gauge how well the US might do the rest of the way.
Here then are five events the USA is destined to win over the course of the remainder of these Olympics.
