2012 London Olympics Medal Count: U.S. Proves Dominant Once Again

In what proved to be a terrific 2012 London Olympics, the United States was on the medal stand quite a bit. All in all, the Americans racked up 104 medals, the only country to finish in triple digits.

Some of the most memorable moments involving the United States were Michael Phelps becoming perhaps the greatest Olympian ever, the U.S. Men's Basketball team thriving again and the the U.S. Women's Soccer team getting revenge on Japan.

New York's local athletes were brilliant in the Olympics, combining to register 23 medals over 14 athletes. Included in that group are Ryan Lochte from Canandaigua, N.Y., who won five medals, including two gold, two silver and a bronze in the pool.

Dana Vollmer from Syracuse won three golds in swimming while Cullen Jones from New York City earned a gold and two silvers. In track and field, Justin Gatlin of Brooklyn has a silver and bronze medal draped around his neck.

Overall here are the final standings in the medal count:

  1. United States: 104 - (46 Gold, 29 Silver, 29 Bronze)
  2. China: 87 - (38 Gold, 27 Silver, 22 Bronze)
  3. Russia: 82 - (24 Gold, 25 Silver, 33 Bronze)
  4. England: 65 - (29 Gold, 17 Silver, 19 Bronze)
