Final Medal Count 2012: Team USA Takes 1st Place Overall At Summer Olympics With 104 Total Medals

The 2012 Summer Games from London have officially wrapped up, and Team USA sits atop the final medal count standings by a wide margin after 302 Olympic events.

Two more gold medals, a narrow victory over Spain in the men's basketball final and an individual medal from men's 96kg freestlye wrestler Jake Varner, were added to the United States' overall tally on Sunday, pushing the American margin of victory to a whopping 17 medals.

No other country was able to rack up more golds or more silvers at this year's games, with only Russia topping the United States in bronze medals, 33-29. Easily the most prolific nation this year heading into the long-awaited closing ceremony, the Summer Games in London will surely go down as one of the best all-around Olympic performances in Team USA history.

Here are the results of the final medal count:

1. United States, 104 (46 gold, 29 silver, 29 bronze)

2. China, 87 (38, 27, 22)

3. Russia, 82 (24, 25, 33)

4. Great Britain, 65 (29, 17, 19)

5. Germany, 44 (11, 19, 14)
