1896 Summer Games and it is expected that on Sunday or Monday a still unknown American will claim a milestone 1000th gold to bookend 120 years of Olympic domination To underscore the United States’ status as the Olympics undisputed superpower at the current rate of winning medals (going back to 2000) it will take almost a century and 21 more Summer Games for the next nation to reach the 1000 gold plateau with China finally hitting the mark in 2100 The 1000 medals would also represent almost one-quarter of the total gold awarded at the Summer Olympics with no other country even reaching half that number The US arrived in Rio sitting on 977 gold and according to Olympstatscom the former Soviet Union with 473 ranks second with Germany a distant third with 288 “I was at the Casa Italia event the other night and they were approaching their 200th gold medal I think they have one more to go so it just goes to show the scale of accomplishment our athletes have achieved over the many years” said United States Olympic Committee chairman Larry Probst With the US medal machine already humming piling up gold in the swimming pool and gymnastics the milestone could go to one of the Rio Games biggest names like Michael Phelps or Simone Biles or it could belong to an unknown competing in men’s Greco-Roman wrestling or sailing It would seem likely the historic moment will come in the

after more than half of his fellow Senate Democrats demanded his departure over multiple claims that he groped women Franken— a former comedian who made his name on the popular late-night comedy show Saturday Night Livebefore turning to politics— has acknowledged misconduct with at least one accuser The 66-year-old Minnesota lawmaker apologisedin November and vowed to work to regain the trust of his colleagues and voters But with six other women now reportedly coming forward to accuse Franken of touching them inappropriately and the issue of sexual harassment reverberating throughout Washington a chorus of Democratic senators said it was time for him to go That group include a dozen female and 17 male Democrats among them the Senate’s top Democrat Chuck Schumer who heaped major pressure on Franken by issuing a statement saying he should step down "immediately" File image of Senator Al Franken AP It marked a dramatic and sudden show of unity against one of their own in the 100-member chamber where the Republicans hold a slim majority "We must commit to zero tolerance" Heidi Heitkamp said in a tweet "And that means Senator Franken should step down" Two other Senate Democrats stopped short of openly demanding Franken’s resignation but said he should be held accountable and that sexual harassment should not be tolerated Franken’s office said he would make an announcement Thursday "Senator Franken is talking with his family at this time and plans to make an announcement in DC tomorrow" said a message on his official Twitter account "Any reports of a final decision are inaccurate" House Democrat Keith Ellison a close Franken friend in the Minnesota congressional delegation said: "I think he will do the right thing and resign" ‘Moment of reckoning’ Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Facebook post appeared to be the opening Senate salvo against Franken Wednesday as she declared that the nation— and Congress— faced a "moment of reckoning" regarding sexual misconduct "We should demand the highest standards not the lowest from our leaders" she said "While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn’t acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve" Wave of accusations The Senate’s number two Democrat Dick Durbin called for Franken’s departure too as did the Democratic National Committee’s chairman Tom Perez The pressure comes just one day after Democrat John Conyers the longest-serving member of Congress left the House of Representatives after several female former staffers accused him of sexual misconduct And it follows a wave of accusations of harassment against titans in the worlds of entertainment the media and politics which began with claims targeting movie mogul Harvey Weinstein earlier in 2017 As a consequence of the unfolding scandals the Senate and House both voted to make anti-harassment training mandatory for all lawmakers and staff The spectre of sexual misconduct is also overshadowing a high-stakes US Senate race in Alabama

mounting many Democrats— ever mindful of how the scandal could impact their efforts to gain congressional seats in next year’s mid-term elections— turned on their colleague The issue was pushed to the top of America’s headlines again Wednesday when Time magazine named as Person of the Year a group of "silence breakers" who came forward in 2017 to publicly expose patterns of sexual harassment
