London 2012 Olympics Medal Count: United States, China Tied With 23 Medals

Day four of the London Games is in the books and the United States has a total of 23 medals, tied with China for the lead thus far. Meanwhile, the rest of the world appears to be playing catch up. The next closest, Japan, has 13 total medals and just one gold.

Team USA put forth a strong effort on Tuesday, picking up four golds, one silver and one bronze medal in a number of events, capped off by the Americans' record-setting performance in the 4x200m freestyle relay that saw Michael Phelps grab his 15th career gold medal. But the Chinese also matched that total, so the two countryes remain deadlocked.

Here's the full medal count courtesy of Yahoo! Sports.

  1. China, 23 (13 gold, 6 silver, 4 bronze)
  2. United States, 23 (9, 8, 6)
  3. Japan, 13 (1, 4, 8)
  4. France, 11 (4, 3, 4)
  5. South Korea, 8 (3, 2, 3)
