U.S. track star Allyson Felix surpassed the record after winning bronze on Friday in the 400 meters at the Tokyo Olympics.
After winning her second gold medal, swimmer Kaylee McKeown invited Emily Seebohm to share the top step of the podium. "It was quite emotional. She had some tears in her eyes, so did I," McKeown says.
Researchers say it may be counterintuitive because silver medalists perform better, but a study shows that third place winners tend to express more happiness after an Olympic event.
