    USA top the gold medal table....now they can be cocky as they please.

    Without swimming, they are absolutely nothing.

    China couldnt beat their 50 gold medal count they achieved in Beijing.

    Seriously IOC should cut down the swimming events as if they are organised just for USA to win them.

    Sorry about that..it's a complete breakdown of medals collected by USA in every sports it participated. Look at the the row which was highlighted....

    USA bagged 31 medals from swimming including 16 gold. I do not see how swimming should not be reviewed out of fairness.

    Medal tally is obviously an easy concept that even the casual observers think they know a thing or two about, and hence, a popular topic.

    It's a bit like the Dow Jones Industrial Index in that while it seems so incomplete but it does serve as a pretty good indicator of the overall sporting strength of a nation.

    For those who are really into sports, we should know better. First of all, how in the world do team sports like soccer, basketball and volleyball count for just a single medal for the whole team? You can have a team of the greatest soccer players in the history competing in the Olympics and their achievement would not hold a candle to a little girl who wins multiple gold medals from swimming or gymnastics.

    Another example of the artificial aspect of the medal count: weightlifting used to award three medals for each weight class: snatch, clean and jerk, and total. Now it is only one for the total. Also, each country is limited to send no more than six men and four women to the Olympics. You can just see how the medal system in this event alone (if it uses a system similar to that of swimming) can totally upset the current medal tally.

    Again, this is a fun topic to banter about but it is more for shooting the breeze than a scientific proof of anything.

    Yeah, swimming is the main factor for USA power. Athletics also contribute big number for them, 9 golds.
    China finishes runner-up position with 38 golds, 13 golds declined from Beijing 2008.
    USA will add 1 more gold in today's Olympic last day through Men's Basketball final.

    You can make what you want of any table mitchell values total medals rather than golds in measurement which can affect nations up to 30 places in his tables. Also the interesting table would be investment per medal which is how UK sport measures things. Globally this is impossible of course how do you measure the value of the US collegiate system with its endowments against the vast state sponsorship and funding used in china especially when figures aren't always released.

    At the end of the day its great that even small nations can have there moment of success due to the ability of a few athletes, hopefully individual brilliance will always occasionally shine be it from a small island in the Caribbean or a nations of millions.

    Congrats to USA who top medal table once again, collecting 10 more golds than Beijing 2008, fantastic!
    Top-10 medal standing, KOR jumped 2 rungs into big 5 while both AUS and JPN slipped out at #10 and #11 respectively. HUN made significant move, from #21 four years ago to #9 in London 2012.
    Goodbye London 2012, see u Rio 2016 :)

    A bit surprised at the end result...was expecting 1 country to top the overall medal table and another country to top the Gold medal tally...

    As for all the noise abt how there are way too many swimming events/medals and even track & field events/medals, it's okay, in the future let the IOC cut half (or even more) of those events and medals...i still feel the U.S. will still end up in the top 3 overall medal standings, which is pretty darn good...and if that were so, some countries will be affected as well (such as Australia, which gets a lot of their medals from the swimming event, might not even get any medals)..At the end, it is really up to each individual country to take advantage of what's given..

    if you think there are too many medals for swimming,
    have a guess how many medals are available for the paralympic?

    It's amusing to see Gandalf without his staff in the opening ceremony of the Parallel Olympics.
    And with short hair.

    Add one more gold for NZ to their total from the shot putt after the original winner was DQed for drugs.
