2012 Olympic Medal Count: China Continues To Lead US Despite Aly Raisman's Big Day

The London Olympics continue to belong to China after Day 11—they lead the United States (and everybody else) in the 2012 Olympic medal count derby with 73 (34/21/18) after the day's events in gymnastics and track and field, despite Aly Raisman's enormous day. America (USA! USA!) trails with 70 medals (30/19/21.) Meanwhile, the unified hosts (Great Britain) and Russia are locked in a weird pseudo-tie. Russia and Great Britain both have 48 medals, but the hosts have 22 gold medals to Russia's 10. (In fifth place, as always, are the Japanese, with just two gold medals, 13 silver, and 14 bronze.)

Day 12 will include the women's beach volleyball finals, in which the United States are ensured the gold and silver medal after the well-known Misty May-Treanor-Kerri Walsh Jennings duo and the less-well-known team of Jen Kessy and April Ross each won their respective semifinals; China, however, is in position to win a bronze, which could cut into the United States' overall medal gains in that event.
