With the 2012 Summer Olympics in London in its final stretch, the United States has all but wrapped up its dominance in the overall medal count. Team USA added two more medals so far on Saturday, taking bronze in women's cross-country mountain biking and men's 60 kg freestyle wrestling thanks to Georgia Gould and Tervel Ivaylov Dlagnev, respectively. The U.S. is also guaranteed to added gold and/or silver medals in the women's volleyball and basketball gold medal matches later in the day.
Russia has been one of the day's biggest winners, adding eight more medals to their tally. They added four gold medals, including wins in both the men's AND women's racewalk. They have little chance of catching China, however. The Chinese are comfortably in second place, adding two medals so far on the day.
Here's how the Top 5 stacks up so far:
- USA: 96 (41 G, 26 S, 29 B)
- China: 83 (37 G, 25 S, 21 B)
- Russia: 70 (19 G, 23 S, 28 B)
- Great Britain: 59 (26 G, 15 S, 18 B)
- Germany: 43 (10 G, 19 S, 14 B)
