Two full days of gold medal competition are in the books at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. At the end of Sunday's medal events, China was still in the lead in both gold medals and total medals, but the United States are close behind in both categories. China and the U.S. are beginning to separate themselves from the pack and early on, this is threatening to become a two-horse race.
China will begin competition on Monday with 12 total medals and six gold medals. The United States is second in total medals with 11 and second in gold medals with three. Italy and Korea are sitting in third place with six total medals each and France is fifth with five.
Eight of the United States' total medals are in swimming, which is perhaps to be expected, including two of the gold medals. The third U.S. gold came in shooting. Of China's six golds, two each are in swimming and shooting, one is in diving and one is in weightlifting.
