The United States took top honors at the 2012 London Olympics, finishing with more total medals and gold medals at the Summer Games. China, Russia, Great Britain and Germany rounded out the Top 5.

The 2012 London Olympics ended quite spectacularly on Sunday, with the United States wrapping up a gold medal in men's basketball shortly before the closing ceremonies commenced. The gold medals Team USA earned Sunday were a very small portion of their final count, however, as the Sweet Land of Liberty finished atop the Olympic leaderboard with 46 gold medals.

The United States final medal count included 46 gold medals to go with 29 silver and bronze medals apiece, totaling a terrific 104 total medals over the past few weeks in London. That total bested America's closest competitor, China, who finished in second place with 38 gold medals en route to 87 total.

Coming in a rather close third was Russia with 82 total medals and 24 golds, far out-distancing fourth-place finishers Great Britain as the host nation finished with 65 medals, 29 of which were gold.

The fifth-place finishers were Germany with total 44 medals -- including 11 gold -- while Japan, Australia, France, South Korea and Italy rounded out the top 10.
