Through 12 full days of competition, Team USA jumped back into the top spot of the overall medals count, after an impressive performance in a number of track and field events.
From the 110m hurdles to long jump, the American athletes combined to win seven medals in four events at London's Olympic Stadium.
China still holds a slim lead in the number of gold medals won, but the United States are in position to at least be in a tie for that superlative by the end of tomorrow night if the women's soccer team defeats Japan to win gold, and if Ashton Eaton hangs on to win the decathlon.
Here's a more complete look at the medal count:
United States: 81 (34 gold, 22 silver, 25 bronze)
China: 77 (36, 22, 19)
Russia: 52 (11, 19, 22)
Great Britain: 48 (22, 13, 13)
Germany: 32 (7, 15, 10)
