If we count 10 points for first and 8 points for second, follow thru with 6 for third, 5 for forth, etc; The U.S. would have won the women's 100 meters and came close to winning the men's. Jam. finished 1st, third, and ninth, which is 16 points. The U.S. finished 2th, 4th, and 5th, which is 17 points for the women. The Jam men finished 1st, 2th, and 8th, which is 19 points. The U.S. men finished 3th, 4th, and 5th, which is 15 points. By the way, the 5th place U.S. finisher would have won every 100m Olympic games from 1896 to 1988. The 4X100m relay could be a new world record if they do not drop the Baton.

@KYinNC I was pretty pleased with the way the American men ran, disappointed Gay didn't get on the podium but still 9.80 is darn fast! I think though that the scoring would not have been so close had Powell not pulled up at 80m with a hamstring problem. The US women also ran very well!
