Led by seven medals from its track athletes, the United States ran past China into the lead in the overall medal count at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London on Wednesday. Here’s a recap of the day’s highlights:
When Hungarian swimmer Daniel Gyurta won the gold medal in the 200m breaststroke during the London Olympics it just didn’t feel right. That’s because rival and good friend Dale Oen wasn’t there to compete against him.
If there’s one thing we’ve always taken for granted regarding the Olympics, it’s that gold medals are actually made out of gold. So imagine our surprise when we learned that this year’s first place medals are mostly silver.
