London 2012 Olympic Medal Standings: China Leads After 4 Days

Team USA is looking to make up ground against Team China in both the total medal count and the gold medal count. China had two historic gold medals on Saturday as Sun Yang won the first Chinese men's swimming gold medal and 16-year-old Ye Shiwen set a new world record for the 400m individual medley.

The US has only one gold medal on the merit of a winning performance in the men's 400m from Ryan Lochte. Here is a look at the medal standings, courtesy of the Sports Network:
