The United States has made Olympic history in Rio by becoming the first nation to win 1,000 gold medals in the Summer Games.

The team entered this year with 977 medals since the first Olympics in 1896 and has now won 23 medals in Rio to reach the incredible milestone.

The medal that got the United States there came in swimming, courtesy of the women's team in the 4x100-meter relay.

It's been a fantastic showing in the 2016 Olympics for Team USA, in which the swimming team has been especially dominant, with Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky leading the way.

Meanwhile, in Cricket, at stumps on day two of the 3rd Match between Australia and Sri Lanka, Australia was on 141 for 1 with 9 wickets remaining and trailing by 214 runs.
