2012 Olympics Medal Count: Battle Between China And United States Heating Up

Day 4 of the 2012 Olympic Games in London is well underway on Tuesday. The medal count race is definitely heating up, as the United States and China remain deadlocked in total medals. A big win for the United States in a marquee event on Tuesday has them gaining ground on China's gold medal lead.

Both the U.S. and China have 19 medals each, outpacing 12 from Japan and nine from France. The U.S. took the gold in the women's team gymnastics on Tuesday, a massive victory for the country, especially considering that China failed to medal in the event. Added to a shooting gold earlier in the day, the United States now has seven gold medals and is closing in on China's 10.
