In preparation for the 2016 U.S. Olympians and Paralympians Reunion in Las Vegas, take a look back at some of the most iconic moments in Team USA history. These timeless feats of determination and sportmanship – from Bob Beamon's world record long jump in 1968 to gymnast Kerri Strugg's vault on an injured foot in 1996 to Meryl Davis and Charlie White's history-making ice dance routine in 2014 – are what define Team USA, now and for many years to come.
