Team GB are aiming to build on their latest medal rush as an impressive start to the Tokyo Olympics continues.
Britain earned gold on day eight in the inaugural Olympic triathlon mixed relay and then blitzed the 4x100m mixed medley relay in world-record fashion in the pool.
Emma Wilson then added a bronze medal in windsurfing, while Karriss Artingstall claimed bronze in the women’s boxing, in the featherweight division.
USA are again expected to enjoy a medal gold rush at the Tokyo Games, but currently trail China and Japan in the medal table.
Forecasters Gracenote expect the United States to finish above the Russia Olympic Committee (ROC) with China finishing in the top three.
Team GB, who finished a remarkable second in the standings in Rio, would this year deem another top-five spot - their fourth on the trot - a success.
Despite the pandemic, Team GB sent 376 athletes to Tokyo - the most of any overseas Games, as they target over 50 medals.
How the medal table works
The medal table is ranked by gold medals, not overall medal count.
Silver and then bronze medals are used as tiebreakers if two countries share the same gold count. Then alphabetical order comes into play.
