Badminton[edit]

Baseball[edit]

In the first appearance of the Americans' national pastime at the Olympics, the United States won five of its seven preliminary games, losing only to Cuba and Japan. This put the Americans in a three-way tie for second through fourth place in the round with Japan and Chinese Taipei. The tie-breaker essentially only determined which of the three teams had to face Cuba in the semifinals (with the other two playing each other), but the United States came in fourth and found itself face-to-face once again with the undefeated Cubans. The Americans lost that game 6-1. In an anticlimactic bronze medal game, the United States lost to Japan again to take fourth place.

Men's Team Competition:

  • United States — 4th place (5-4)
