2012 Summer Olympics: Friday Daily Preview, Medal Count

Swimming has been the big medal maker for the United States so far in the Olympics, and the pool in the past couple of days has skyrocketed the US into the lead in the overall medal count.

China was in the lead for a long stretch of time and seemed to end every day for the past week with a lead, but the US managed to end Thursday with 37 total medals and 18 golds, both good for the lead in the count. China is currently tied for first in golds, but is behind in total medal count with only 34. A full medal count tracker can be found here.

Including four more swimming finals that should help the Americans boost their medal count a bit more, Friday will see the end of 27 different events. Track and field events will begin on Friday, with plenty of soccer, water polo and other semi and quarter-finals to keep the day busy.

As per usual, you can see the games live on NBColympics.com, assuming that you fit their qualifications to access their stream services. The games will also be shown on tape delay on the entire NBC network of channels on television.
