The pair increased the United States' gold medal haul to 22, second behind China's 29. However, the U.S. holds a 64-62 advantage over China in the overall medal table after Day 10's early events.

Valarie Allman Wins 1st American Gold in Track and Field

Allman's victory in the women's discus should be the first of a handful of gold medals the U.S. wins over the next few days inside the Japan National Stadium.

The 26-year-old Stanford product needed one throw to set the winning mark in the competition. She started the six-throw final with a heave of 68.98 meters (226 feet, 3 inches).

It’s #gold for Valarie Allman of @TeamUSA in the women’s discus throw on her Olympic debut! @WorldAthletics | #StrongerTogether | #Tokyo2020 | #Athletics https://t.co/WeIx1j5Ptx

Allman had to wait and see what 11 other competitors would throw during the final, but no one came close to reaching her opening mark. The American sent two more throws into the field, but neither was within two meters of her original toss.

Silver-medal winner Kristin Pudenz of Germany produced a best throw of 66.86 meters.

Allman's gold was the first of its kind and fifth overall medal in track and field for the Americans in Tokyo. Fred Kerley (men's 100m) Kendra Harrison (women's 100m hurdles) and Raven Saunders (women's shot put) all won silver medals, while the mixed 4x400 meter relay team picked up a bronze.

Before the Games conclude Sunday, the United States is expected to pick up a slew of medals in the athletics events. Sydney McLaughlin (women's 400m hurdles) and Noah Lyles (men's 200m) are among the established stars who could help create separation from China in the overall medal table.


Jade Carey Takes Gold in Floor Exercise

Carey picked up the second American individual win in gymnastics of these Games.

GOLDEN! 🥇 @TeamUSA's @jadeacarey wins GOLD on floor exercise at the #TokyoOlympics. @OnHerTurf x #OlympicHERstory https://t.co/zjUvfWwsmg

The 21-year-old produced a score of 14.366 during her floor exercise routine to join Suni Lee as one of the two American gymnasts with gold medals in Tokyo.

Carey used the floor exercise as a bounce-back event after she took eighth in the vault competition.

She told NBC's The Today Show that she needed to put the vault result behind her to focus on winning the floor exercise.

"Last night was definitely hard for me, but I just had to remember that I wasn't done yet, and we still had floor, so I needed to put it behind me and give everything I could into floor," Carey said.

The United States' other gymnastics gold came from Lee in the individual all-around. MyKayla Skinner took silver in the vault, and Lee was third in the uneven bars. The Americans also took silver in the team all-around, but Carey was left off the roster for the four-person competition.

Carey's victory Monday morning means each of the five female American gymnasts who went to Tokyo will go home with at least one medal.
