London Medal Count 2012: Team USA Remains In 2nd Place Overall After 11 Days Of Competition

With exactly 200 of the 302 scheduled events at the 2012 Summer Olympics already a thing of the past, frontrunners Team China and the United States have already combined to win a medal in more than 71% of all competitions.

But after being edged by their Chinese counterparts in golds after a flurry on day 11, the United States now finds itself in a minor hole with a three-medal deficit. While they also trail in the overall gold medal count 34-30, the Americans had one of their weaker performances on Tuesday by only acquiring one gold, a first-place finish from Aly Raisman in women's floor exercise.

Here is the updated medal count through 11 days of events:

1. China, 73 (34 gold, 21 silver, 18 bronze)

2. United States, 70 (30, 19, 21)

3. Great Britain, 48 (22, 13, 13)

4. Russia, 48 (10, 18, 20)

5. Japan, 29 (2, 13, 14)
