I mean i guess that’s okay…haha. Amazing work this week Team USA, each and every one of you made us proud!!

Utter domination, awesome!

16 out of 24, yes?

Steve Nolan

Yes. 16+17=24, checks out to me.

I am referring to the sentence which says the Olympic swim team has won 24 out of USA’s 40 golds. As far as I can see, swimming only won 16, and US in general has won 24. 16 out of 24 rather than 24 out of 40
