The United States holds the all-time record for medals in the summer Olympics between 1896 and 2010. The United States also holds the record for the most Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals.

The Soviet Union (now defunct) comes a distant second with less than half the total medals of the USA. China, however, won the medal race in the 2008 games and poses a threat to America's dominance every four years. Do you think America will win this year?



ONLINE.WSJ.COM reports:
This was supposed to be a big year for China. But The Wall Street Journal projects that the U.S. will dominate, big time, in the London Games.

    The Summer Olympics is the only event where the US always cleans up in the medals. Don't think China is much of a threat.

    Undoubtedly because you guys have the breadth of talent to choose from as ell as the facilities to train your athletes... not sour grapes, just fact.

    We'll probably come second or third due to the home field advantage with China and Australia up there as well.

    I don't know. Celebrating victories is great but I don't remember the point of the Olympics being to focus on a ''medal race'' among the participating countries.

    China got a lot more gold but we also got a lot more silver and bronze. Try repeating when you're not at home, China. Let's see it.

    The US is the third most populous country and should take more medals than any country. India does poorly and China, which beat the US in Gold medals in 2008, probably won't do as well.

    Sad that the US continues to decline in the main sports such as Track and Field, Swimming, etc. I assume that the US will be c. 40th in medals per capita, behind Australia, UK, Germany, Cuba, Bahamas, etc.

    If they don't think they are French and give their metals to the wrong team.
    Just joking. A few years ago a bust of one of the founding fathers (who, ?)
    It was given to someone by the President Bush ?!? Well on the bottom of the bust of this
    Statue given as an American honor, said Made in China. " we are number 1 " !?!?
