Media hails dominant USA

RIO DE JANEIRO (Rio 2016 Olympic Games) - The United States underlined their status as the best team in the world by winning all of their Olympic games for the third time in a row in Rio de Janeiro.

The USA have not lost to an opponent in international competition since the Semi-Finals of the 2006 FIBA Basketball World Cup, when Greece upset them in Japan, 101-95. The 96-66 triumph over Serbia in the title clash was the last game for Mike Krzyzewski as coach and also the final one for Carmelo Anthony, who won a gold medal for the third time in four Olympics.
