For the first time in 49 years, Team USA did not win a medal on the first day of the Olympics
U.S. athletes did not win a single award on the first day of competition at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
The U.S. team was represented in five sports on the first day of the Tokyo Games, but failed to win a medal.
The last time something similar happened to the U.S. team was at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Then, on the first day, the U.S. team, which eventually won 94 medals, also failed to take home any medals.
