RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — From the pool to the balance beam, Team USA had a great Tuesday in the summer games.

Team USA has had a spot on the podium 26 time during this year’s Olympics.  The United States still leads the way with the most medals.  Team USA is also holding the most gold medals, with nine total.

Rounding out the top five with the most medals are China, Japan, Russia and Australia.

Here’s what to watch in Rio on day five of the games:

After an exhausting day, and two gold medal wins Tuesday, it’s back to the pool for Michael Phelps.  He and Ryan Lochte will be looking to get to the semifinals in the men’s 200 meter individual medleys Wednesday.  Nathan Adrian is hoping to bring home his second gold of the game when he swims in the men’s 100 meter freestyle final.

Katie Ledecky will lead the charge in the women’s 4×200 freestyle relay finals Wednesday night.

Just one day after the U.S. women’s gymnastic’s team took home gold in the team finals, the men’s individual all-around finals will be held.

Taking to the court, Carmelo Anthony is looking to become the all-time leading scorer in Team USA history when the men’s basketball team takes on Australia Wednesday.  Anthony is just 12 points away from breaking that record.

We’re waiting to see if history will repeat itself for Kerri Walsh Jennings.   The beach volleyball player took home gold in London back in 2012.   Jennings and April Ross will take on the Swiss team of Isabelle Forrer and Anouk Verge-Depre Wednesday night.
