Olympic Medal Count: 7/30/2012

The London Olympics kicked off this weekend, and after three days of competition, the United States shares the top spot in the medal count with China.

Both nations are currently tied with 17 medals each, with China boasting 9 Gold medals to the USA’s 5.

France is the third country on the list with 7 total medals.

And despite the debacle that has become NBC’s delayed TV coverage here in the US, the games are still setting ratings records, beating out the 2008 games in Beijing.

Outside of the U.S. Sunday’s coverage had 21.7% of households tuned in — 2% higher than the 2008 Beijing Games.

Online, NBC is live streaming all 32 Olympic sports, via their site, and to tablets and smartphones.

Sunday’s streaming totals drew 11 million streams, with  half of the views for live action and half for archived content.

For those interested, Michael Phelps will be going for the gold in the 100M Butterfly on Tuesday at 2:47 EST, you can stream it live on the app or website.
