It's hard to believe that we're almost to the finish line of the 2012 Olympics.

Day 13 proved to be another one dominated by USA, as the Americans piled up nine total medals, including five golds. 

Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir finished one, two and three in the men's 200-meter dash—a trifecta that was unexpected, considering America's Wallace Spearman and Frances Christophe Lemaitre had both posted faster times than Weir this year.

There were a couple of historic medals handed out, too.

Botswana won their first medal in Olympic history, as Nijel Amos finished in second place behind David Lekuta Rudisha—the new world-record holder for the men's 800 meters as of today. 

Malaysia finally won a medal in a sport other than badminton, as Pandelela Rinong Pamg took third for her performance in the women's individual 10-meter platform competition. 

All in all, Day 13 was truly memorable. Now, on to the rankings.
