LONDON, UK-- For the fifth straight Summer Olympics, American athletes will take home more medals than any other country. With only Sunday's competitions remaining, the U.S. has locked up the overall medals race over China.
The U.S. has claimed 102 medals, 15 more than the Chinese. Americans are also leading the gold medal chase over China, 44-38.
American swimmers won 31 medals. Track and field now has 29, one marathon medal on Sunday away from getting to 30 -- a goal that seemed farfetched to some in the U.S. Olympic movement not long ago.
