2012 Olympic Medal Count: United States Extends Overall Lead On China

With the 2012 London Olympic Games beginning to wind down, the United States stretched it's lead over China and the rest of the world after 14 days of competition. Team USA notched four medals on Friday, including gold medals from the women's 4 x 100m relay team and wrestler Jordan Burroughs in the men's 74kg freestyle event.

Only 67 of the 302 scheduled events at the summer games are still up for grabs, with only an epic collapse keeping the U.S. from remaining atop the overall medal standings.

Here are the top five countries in the latest medal count:

1. United States, 94 (41 gold, 26 silver, 27 bronze)

2. China, 81 (37 gold, 25 silver, 19 bronze)

3. Russia, 63 (15 gold, 21 silver, 27 bronze)

4. Great Britain, 57 (25 gold, 15 silver, 17 bronze)

5. Germany, 42 (10 gold, 18 silver, 14 bronze)
