US Medal Count 2012: The United States Tops All Nations With 104 Medals

The US medal count stands at 104 at the conclusion of the 2012 London Olympics, and there were a few representatives of St. Louis and the state of Missouri who helped the United States achieve that impressive total. [ed. note: That leaves you with plenty of chances to indulge not only sub-nationalism, with Missouri, but sub-sub-nationalism, with St. Louis. I will, however, have to leave you to determine whether you're eligible for neighborhood-based sub-sub-sub-nationalism.]

Becky Sauerbrunn won gold along with the rest of the U.S. women's soccer team, Dawn Harper won a silver medal in the women's 100m hurdles event, and Kelci Bryant won a silver medal in the women's synchronized 3m springboard diving event.
