The Summer Olympic Games resumed Aug. 8 in Rio with day three of the international sporting competition, and featured a collection of incredible performances by athletes representing a host of countries. Here's a quick look at day three's Rio 2016 results for Team USA, including the outcome of breaststroke star Lilly King's battle for gold against Yulia Efimova.

The first medal of the day was earned by divers David Boudia and Steele Johnson (457.11), who took the silver in the men's synchronized 10m platform final behind the dominant Chinese duo of Chen Aisen and Lin Yue (496.98).

The silver is the first Olympic medal for Johnson and the third for Boudia, who previously won bronze in the 10m synchro and gold in the 10m individual platform at the 2012 Olympics in London.

Men struggle --again-- in Olympic gymnastics team final

The Rio 2016 results for Team USA in the men's gymnastics final were less than golden. In fact, they weren't even silvery or bronz-ish. Although the squad --comprised of Sam Mikulak, Chris Brooks, Alex Naddour, Danell Leyva, and Jake Dalton-- qualified second for the team final, they got off to a disappointing start on floor exercise and weren't able to mount an effective comeback in time.

The end result was a fifth place finish, which matched the team's disappointing result in 2012. Team Japan, led by reigning Olympic all around gold medalist Kohei Uchimura, earned the victory, while Russia placed second and 2012 Olympic champion China held on for bronze.

Swimming wins bolster Team USA's Rio 2016 results on day 3

With just a single medal added to the nation's tally on day three by the evening hours, Team USA's swimmers hit the pool to contest four final races and came away with an impressive six podium placements.

In the first final contested, Conor Dwyer held on to claim the bronze medal in the men's 400m freestyle final behind winner Sun Yang and silver medalist Chad Le Clos. 

In the women's 100m back final, Kathleen Baker earned the silver medal behind Katinka Hosszu of Hungary, who is proving herself a force at the Rio Games. The men's version of the event followed, with Top qualifiers Ryan Murphy and David Plummer finishing in gold and bronze medal position.

Better yet, Murphy's time of 51.97 represented a new Olympic Record.

The women's 100m breaststroke followed, which was billed as as a showdown between American Lilly King and Russian Yulia Efimova. In the end, it was King who took the win over silver medalist Efimova as she set an Olympic Record with her gold medal worthy time of 1:04.93. But the 19-year old wasn't the only American to make the podium, as Katie Meili earned the bronze.
