2012 Summer Olympics: Preview, Medal Count For August 8

Another full day of Olympics action will begin on Wednesday, with 25 medal matches taking place including some volleyball and table tennis finals. August 8 will also mark the start of several different quarterfinals, including basketball and handball. The USA Men's Basketball team is the headliner of those games, facing off against Australia at 5:15 p.m. ET.

China currently holds the lead in the medal count once again. They are ahead of the United States by two medals, a 73-71 race at the moment. Yahoo's Olympic blog thinks that the United States are leading in the 'real' medal count, of course.

A full, updated medal count provided by Sports Illustrated can be found here.

As per usual, all of the events for Wednesday can be watched live on NBCOlympics.com as long as you fit their requirements for streaming on their site. You can also check out everything on the NBC family of channels, though most of it will be on the usual tape delay.
