2012 London Olympics Medal Count: USA Finishes With 104 Medals

After adding to its total on Sunday, the United States completes the 2012 London Olympics with 104 total medals, easily the highest figure of any nation this year. Team USA added two more gold medals to its total on Sunday, one in men's basketball and one in men's wrestling, giving the team its highest gold medal total in a non-boycotted Olympics since 1904.

China finishes second in total medal count with 87 medals, an impressive performance in its own right. Those medals qualify as China's best performance in an Olympics on non-Chinese soil, although the Russians closed in at the end to finish with 83 total medals in London.

Here is the top 5 at the conclusion of the London Olympics:

  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)
