>> The last real gold for Team USA on Sunday, pounding Serbia on the basketball court, 96 to 66. The Serbs had given them a run for their money in group play, but the Dream Team came roaring back for the gold medal game. Kevin Durant leading the assault, scoring 30 points to help his team to a third straight Olympic victory.

And at the final awards show of the game, Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge taking gold in the Men's Marathon. At 2:08:44, he was so far ahead of his competitors that he ran into the Sambadrome alone. Silver went to Ethiopia's Feyisa Lilesa, gesturing support for his tribe, who are locked in a dispute with the government, as he crossed the finish line.

And Clarissa Shields smacked her way to Olympic history becoming America's first double boxing champion in more than 100 years when she triumphed in the women's mid-weight. Shields actually brought her London 2012 gold with her to the ring and left with two medals around her neck. And Mongolia delivered a final bit of Olympic drama when two wrestling coaches stripped off to protest the penalty.

Manticore Gansourieh had been leading in the match against his Uzbek opponent when he decided to taunt him by dancing around. That move caused him the Bronze in the Men's 65 kilogram contest. The Olympic flag now goes to Tokyo with Prime minister Shinzō Abe showing up at a colorful closing ceremony dress as one of the country's cultural legacies, Super Mario.
