Asian Americans Win Gold Medals At The 2012 Olympics For USA

It has almost been a week since Olympics began and every moment of it has been exciting to watch. On Tuesday, July 31, 2012, Kyla Ross along with her teammates won a gold medal in Women’s Gymnastics. Ross is part Japanese, Filipino, Black and Puerto Rican. She is only fifteen and she is really talented. USA has not won a gold medal in Women’s Gymnastics since 1996.  Another Asian American winner of the Olympics is Nathan Adrian. He graduated from University of California, Berkeley and he is part Chinese and White. He won the gold medal for USA in 100m Men’s Freestyle on Wednesday August 1, 2012. August 1, 2012 also happens to be the birthday of the first Asian American, Sammy Lee, to win a gold medal for USA in 1948 Olympics in London.

Go Team USA!
