London Olympics 2012 Medal Count: What Will The Final Haul Be For The United States?

For two weeks, the United States and China battled it out at the top of the medal count leaderboard. After Friday and Saturday, the U.S. finally opened up a comfortable lead over their rivals and took the edge in both total medal and gold medals.

The United States will be gunning for one more big gold medal on Sunday as Team USA takes on Spain in a rematch of the 2008 men's gold medal game. The U.S. will be finishing with more medals than any other country. Just how many will they wind up with when all is said and done?

Here is how the top five looks in the latest medal count:

  1. United States, 102 (44 gold, 29 silver, 29 bronze)
  2. China, 87 (38, 27, 22)
  3. Russia, 78 (21, 25, 32)
  4. Great Britain, 62 (28, 15, 19)
  5. Germany, 44 (11, 19, 14)
