London 2012 Final Medal Count: United States Wins Overall Tally With 104 Total Medals

By adding two more gold medals to its tally on the final day of competition from the 2012 Summer Games from London, Team USA cruised to a comfortable victory over the rest of the world in the overall medal count.

With golds on Sunday in both men's basketball and men's individual freestyle 96kg wrestling from Jake Varner, the United States also managed to win the race for gold medals as well, as it recorded eight more first-place finishes than China, the next closest competitor. And with a downright impressive 17-medal victory over the field at this year's games, it's quite evident that many of America's top athletes are quite literally at the peak of their respective sports.

Here are the results of the final medal count after 302 events:

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)

5. Germany, 44 (11, 19, 14)
