American gold bonanza as Tokyo Olympics near end

The second to last day of competition at the Tokyo Olympics produced a gold medal bonanza for the United States.

The Americans kept up their domination in men's basketball and women's water polo with gold medal victories in both on Saturday, and Allyson Felix won her 11th career medal with a gold one as part of the U.S. women's winning 4x400-relay team.
