What is the best team you've ever been a part of?
As of today, August 10, the United States has won 94 medals in the 2012 Olympic Games -- including 24 from team sports -- more than any other country. Teams like beach volleyball champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, or the "fab five" female gymnasts have captured a lot of attention across the U.S. and around the globe. But the U.S. has also captured medals in lower-profile team sports like rowing, fencing, water polo and cycling.
With gold medal in hand, U.S. Olympic Women's Soccer goalie Hope Solo said "This it's the first time in my athletic career that I felt like it was a true team."
So what makes a team a "true team"? We want to hear YOUR stories of amazing teamwork. They don't have to be Olympic-sized either. In the boxes below, tell us about the sports team, job team, community or other team you've been a part of that felt "truest" to you.
