2012 Olympics Medal Count: United States Trying To Pull Away

On Tuesday at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the United States scored a huge victory by taking the gold medal in the women's team gymnastics event. What's more, since China failed to medal in the event, the two countries remain tied in total medal count, while the U.S. gains ground on China's gold medal lead.

China has 10 gold medals and leads the pack in that respect, although a shooting gold and the gymnastics gold on Tuesday give the U.S. seven gold medals, only three off the pace with plenty of swimming and gymnastics events forthcoming.

Both China and the U.S. lead all countries with 19 total medals each, while Japan is in third place with 12. France has the third-most gold medals, with four. France is fourth in medal count with nine total.
