At the close of competition on August 6, day 10 of the 2012 London Summer Games, Team China continued to hold a slight lead over the US in the overall Olympic medal count, by a count of 64 to 63. Russia sits in third place with 42, while host nation Great Britain is fourth with 40.
China also continues to hold the lead in the gold medal tally, with 31 to second-ranked USA's 29. Thanks to a string of spectacular performances, Great Britain sits in third with 18. Just one more gold will equal their 2008 mark from the Beijing Games.
With just three new medals, day 10 has to be deemed a disappointing one for Team USA. Though pole vaulter Jenn Suhr staged an impressive upset in claiming the gold in her final, not a single US athlete made the finals of them men's 400m, a crushing turn of events given that Team USA swept the medals in 2008.
Team Russia, however, had a great day of competition, securing seven additional medals, a total which includes three golds. One of the gold medals went to gymnast Aliya Mustafina, who performed a sparkling uneven bars routine. The win confirmed a return to form for Mustafina, a former World Champion who'd been struggling to recover from an injury.
