London 2012 Games Weekend Wrap Up
USA and Spain ended the Games with a 107-100 victory over Spain in Men’s Basketball, duplicating their Gold medal win against Spain in the Beijing final four years ago. Their Gold medal win brings USA the coveted title of most medals with a grand total of 104 medals, 46 of them Gold, 29 Silver, and 29 Bronze.
Mo Farah of Great Britain also made history when he won the Men’s 5000 meters and the 10,000 meters, earning him two Gold medals. His last lap timed at 52.9 seconds sent the crowd of 80,000 screaming louder than his 10,000 meter victory as Farah put his hand over his mouth in disbelief of his achievement. Farah is the first Brit to win both these races as no Brit has ever won either of these races in Games history.
