Deontay Wilder (Tuscaloosa, Ala.) lost his heavyweight boxing bout with Clemente Russo of Italy 7-1 Friday afternoon at Beijing's Workers' Gymnasium. The loss gives Wilder a bronze medal, which is the 100th medal won by the United States during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The U.S. is on the verge of surpassing the 102 medals won at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. The record for medals won in an Olympic Games held outside the United States is 108, set at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.
