As the Rio Olympics heads into the final days, the US is approaching 100 medals–nearly a third of those gold.

Swimmer Michael Phelps has added to his dominance of the sport with six more medals, four of which are gold.

But the real news is how many US women have come through with championship performances. From Ginny Thrasher, who brought home the first American medal for air rifle, to gymnast extraordinaire Simone Biles, who captured 5 medals for gymnastics, and Simone Manuel, who earned 4 for swimming, the American women have done an outstanding job. Just today, the US women swept the 100 meter hurdles.

Sure, there have been disappointments: the women’s soccer team failed to even make it to Rio for the championship rounds and the highly touted duo of Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross left with only a bronze medal for beach volleyball.

The American women are a diverse group, racially and ethnically. They represent the drive and spirit that is what makes America great. Let’s hope they get the recognition they deserve when they head home with their new hardware.
