Olympics Medal Count: China Has Slight Lead At Start Of Day 10

China has two more gold medals and one more overall medal than the United States atop the medal count leaderboard in London. And don't expect the situation to be drastically different tomorrow.

Looking down the medals that will be given out on Monday, there aren't an awful lot in events that the United States and China are successful at. When predicting the entire Olympics before they started, Brian Cazeneuve only predicted five total medals between the two countries in the events that will be contested today. A decent proportion of those medals could come in gymnastics, as China's Chen Yibing is a favorite on men's rings and the United States has Gabby Douglas going in the uneven bars. America also has a chance at gold in the 400m hurdles, where three of the eight participants in the final event will be racing for the red, white and blue.

Here's the full medal count at the start of the day:

  1. China: 61 (30 gold, 17 silver, 14 bronze)
  2. United States: 60 (28, 14, 18)
  3. Great Britain: 37 (16, 11, 10)
  4. Russia: 35 (4, 16, 15)
  5. Japan: 27 (2, 12, 13)
