It’s been a busy day at the Olympics since our last medals update.
The Chinese are still ahead in the gold medals count, but Team USA has caught up in total medals. The two sport superpowers have each won 17 medals going into Tuesday afternoon’s events.
France has overtaken Italy for 3rd place. The French have won 3 gold medals, 1 silver medal and 3 bronze medals. Strangely enough, North Korea is in 4th place with 3 gold medals and 1 bronze medal. The starving republic of North Korea is ahead of Italy, which has won 2 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 2 bronze medals.
Tonight is a big night for swimming – lots of medals are up for grabs and Michael Phelps has a chance to make history tonight!
