So far, the US is leading the medal chart with 54 with China’s 47. But it is misleading. China led with 27 gold medals while US has 16. Take Phelps’ 7 gold medals away, US would have only 9 gold medals.
It was said that China’s goal was to get on the same level of caliber play that the United States has been for years and from there, to dominate the level. It looks like China is accomplishing this task.
