2012 London Olympics Medal Count: China Re-Takes Lead After Sunday's Events

After briefly holding the lead in both the overall medal count and the gold medal count over the weekend, the U.S. gave the advantage back Sunday. Americans did take medals in six of Sunday's events (2 gold, 1 silver, 3 bronze), but China holds the lead in the overall medal category by the slimmest possible margin. The race for gold medals is a fairly tight one as well, as seen in SB Nation's August 5th medal video below.

Medals in 18 events will be awarded Monday as the Games enters its final week. That total includes five medals in track and field, three in wrestling and gymnastics, and two each in sailing and shooting. Medals in cycling, equestrian, and weightlifting, will also be awarded.
