Check out the highlights from Day 5 of Tokyo 2020 action:

Katie Ledecky captured her first gold medal of the Tokyo Olympics and the first-ever won by a female swimmer in the 1500m freestyle. Teammate Erica Sullivan closed late to win silver, to Ledecky's elation.

Damian Lillard was a menace beyond the arc against Iran, racking up 21 points to help Team USA earn its first win of the Tokyo Olympics.

In an incredibly tight race, Japan's Yui Ohashi scraped past Team USA swimmers Alex Walsh and Kate Douglass for Tokyo Olympic gold in the women’s 200m individual medley.

U.S. gymnastics veteran Sam Mikulak stuck the landing on his vault attempt in the Olympic individual all-around final, earning a 14.533, besting his 14.133 qualification performance.

Seven points from Stefanie Dolson and strong defense helped the U.S. women take down ROC in the first-ever Olympic women's 3x3 basketball gold medal game.
