China and the US are fighting it out for the total number of medals earned at the London Olympics, but China is dominating the gold medal count.
The two countries were tied for some time today, at 13. Then China took the lead when their men's gymnastics team took the gold. Later this afternoon US swimmer Missy Franklin racked up another gold for the US, winning the women's 100-meter backstroke. The total medal is now tied at 17.
But China is still far ahead in the total gold medal count, with nine to the US's five. Japan is in third place with eleven medals total and one gold.
China has been making history, winning competitions that have usually gone to other countries, and proving their dominance at the Beijing Olympics wasn't simply home-soil advantage.
On the first day of the Olympics, Sun Yang, 20, gave China its first men's swimming gold medal with an Olympic record in the 400-meter freestyle.
