2012 London Olympics Medal Count: Team USA Reaches 100-Mark, Clinches Top Spot

The United States eclipsed the 100-medal mark on Saturday with three gold, three silver and two bronze to bring their overall total for the London Games to 102. Most importantly, though, Team USA also clinched the top spot in the medal count for the fifth consecutive Summer Games. The U.S. added medals in both diving and track and field earlier in the day.

During the 2008 Games in Beijing, the U.S. captured 110 medals compared to China's 100. Sunday marks the final day of competition.

The top five countries on the overall medal leaderboard through Saturday, Day 15, are below, courtesy of Yahoo! Sports.

  1. United States: 44 gold, 29 silver, 29 bronze (102 overall)
  2. China: 38 gold, 27 silver, 22 bronze (87 overall)
