U.S. dominance is alive -- in track

The U.S. men's basketball team won the FIBA Americas Tournament this weekend with rout after rout, but that wasn't the most dominant American outing.

Nope, the biggest reason for U.S. sports fans to thump their chests came in Japan as Team USA blew the world away on the track.

Tyson Gay. Jeremy Wariner. Allyson Felix.

Remember those names. They rolled through the competition in Japan and are all in their early to mid-20s.

So while the red, white and blue struggle in some sports, the runners, jumpers and throwers of U.S. Track and Field took care of business on the international stage to repair some of our country's broken sports image.
