The U.S. won two of each kind of medal, garnering four more off of the strength of the swim team. The U.S. also won a bronze in judo and another bronze in diving.

China has nine gold medals compared to the U.S. at five. Japan is trying to keep it a three-horse race with 11 medals overall. Italy sits in fourth place at eight, with France and South Korea rounding out the top five with seven medals each.
