The United States claimed the first men’s relay medal of the Tokyo Olympic Games as Caeleb Dressel teamed up with Blake Pieroni, Bowe Becker and Zach Apple to blow past the field.

The United States secured a victory over Japan in the final opening-round game to gather momentum ahead of a gold medal rematch.

Team USA veteran Sam Mikulak scored 15.000 on the parallel bars in the men’s Olympic gymnastics team final. He scored a 15.466 during qualifications and will compete in the event final later this week.
