London 2012 Olympics Medal Count: Big Weekend Seals The Deal For United States

The 2012 Olympic Games in London has finally come to an end. The first 13 or 14 days of the Olympiad were fearsomely close, with the United States and China fighting tooth and nail for the lead in total medal count and gold medals. Over the course of the final weekend, however, the United States opened up a massive double-digit lead in total medals and were assured of finishing as the winners entering the final day of the Summer Games on Sunday.

That didn't stop the U.S. from adding on two more big gold medals in wrestling and men's basketball however. The U.S. wound up with 104 total medals and 46 gold medals.

  1. United States, 104 (46 gold, 29 silver, 29 bronze)
  2. China, 87 (38, 27, 22)
  3. Russia, 82 (24, 25, 33)
  4. Great Britain, 65 (29, 17, 19)
  5. Germany, 44 (11, 19, 14)
