2012 Olympics Medal Count: China Maintains 1-Medal Lead Over USA

Team USA closed the gap in the overall medal count to just one on Monday, trailing China which has 64 overall medals. The USA is two shy in the gold medal count as we wind down the final week of competition. Jen Suhr picked up a gold medal for the USA late on Monday, pulling closer to the Chinese. The Americans typically pick up ground, or pull away, during the host of track-and-field events but Monday was a relatively quiet day. The Americans running in the men's 400m hurdles had an overall disappointing showing, but Michael Tinsley did win a silver medal. Here's a more complete look at the medal count:

  1. China, 64 (31 gold, 19 silver, 14 bronze)
  2. United States, 63 (29, 15, 19)
  3. Russia, 42 (7, 17, 18)
  4. Great Britain, 40 (18, 11, 11)
  5. Japan, 28 (2, 12, 14)
