China leads the U.S., 30-29, in the overall medal count at the 2012 London Olympics after Day 5 on Wednesday.
China might be further ahead without the efforts of Syracuse native Dana Vollmer, who was part of the U.S. women's 4x200-meter freestyle relay team which won gold and set an Olympic record in the process. Vollmer also has a gold in the women's 100-meter butterfly during the London Games.
The U.S. won six medals on Wednesday (three gold, three bronze). Besides the 4x200-meter free style gold, the U.S. also won in road women's individual time trial (Kristin Armstrong) and men's 100-meter freestyle (Nathan Adrian). The bronze medals were in men's synchronized 3-meter springboard diving, women's quadruple sculls and gymnastics men's all-around (Danell Leyva).
