2012 Olympics: China Adds Medals In Diving, Kazakhstan Picks Up Another Gold

There are plenty more gold medal events in the books on Sunday at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. China had gained a lead in the total medal and gold medal counts throughout the day, while the United States has just missed out on at least one trip to the podium.

Wrestling is just getting started at the summer games, but medals have already been handed out in the men's 74kg and 55kg Greco-Roman events. In the 74kg division, Russian Roman Vlasov took home the gold medal by defeating Arsen Julfalakyan of Armenia. Alexsandr Kasakevic of Lithuania and Emin Ahvadov from Azerbaijan took home the bronze medals. In the 55kg division, Hamid Mohammad SoryanReihanpour claimed the gold medal for Iran, besting Rovshan Bayramov of Azerbaijan in the final.

Olha Saladuha of Ukraine was just behind at 14.79 meters for the bronze. The medal is the sixth for Kazakhstan in these Summer Games, but each one of those has been a gold medal.

In the men's team foil event in fencing, the United States came up short in the bronze medal match, losing 45-27 to Germany. In the gold medal match, Italy edged out Japan, 45-39.

Over on the diving front, China dominated the women's 3m springboard competition, as Minxia Wu blew away the competition for the gold and Zi He finished a distant second for the silver.
