The United States had big wins on Thursday at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The day was highlighted by gold medals in women's soccer and women's water polo, which helped push the U.S. back into the medal count lead -- in both total medals and gold medals. The United States is now a full 10 medals ahead of second-place China and has 39 gold medals to China's 37.
Further down the medal count leaderboard, there are three different countries that are a perfect one-for-one: one total medal, one gold medal. Algeria won its gold medal in the men's 1500m, after winner Taoufik Makhloufi was briefly in danger of being expelled from the Games. Grenada earned its top honor thanks to Kirani James winning the men's 400m. And Venezuela's Ruben Limardo Gascon captured the gold medal in men's individual epee in fencing.
Here are the leaders in the total medal count after competition on Thursday. These numbers are courtesy of the official London 2012 website.
1. United States - 90 (39, 25, 26)
2. China - 80 (37, 24, 19)
