The second day of medal competition at the 2012 Olympics will take place on Sunday in London. As the day begins, the United States -- as expected -- is already positioned near the top of the list in total medals by country. Four of those U.S. medal-winners are Southern California representatives.

Heading into Sunday's events, China currently leads all countries with four total medals and four gold medals. The United States and Italy are tied with five total medals.Brazil, Korea and Japan each have three medals and Japan is the only one of those three countries without a gold medal. No other country has more than one medal.

The U.S. currently has one gold medal, two silver medals and two bronze medals.

Jacob Wukie from Chula Vista helped bring home the silver in the men's team archery event, although the U.S. lost the gold to Italy on Italy's final arrow. Jessica Hardy, Missy Franklin and Amanda Weir were all part of the bronze medal-winning team in the women's 4x100m freestyle relay in the swimming competition. Hardy was born in Long Beach and trains with the USC team, Weir also attends USC and Franklin was born in Pasadena.
