Medal Tally: The Games of the XXX Olympiad

London 2012 or the 2012 Summer Olympic Games had just concluded, with the United States of America taking back their dominance over China for the top spot on the medal rankings.  Host country Great Britain took the third spot outranking the Russian Federation and Republic of Korea for the top five.  Here are the list of all countries that took home an Olympic medal.


Medal rankings (continued)

The region may not have produced an Olympic gold medal, but nonetheless some of our neighboring countries were able to yield silvers and bronzes in their campaign.

Thailand is the most medaled country in the region with two (2) silvers and a bronze, to rank 57th overall, followed by Indonesia and Malaysia, both of which taking home a silver and a bronze to rank equally in 63rd, while Singapore finished with two (2) bronze medals to rank at 75th.  Sadly, the Philippines is one of the countries that didn’t earn any medals at this Olympics.

The last time we saw the Philippines taking home an Olympic medal was way back during Barcelona in 1992—that was a staggering 20 years ago!  That’s practically an entire generation, and I hope that we don’t have to wait another generation to have a medal from the Olympics.  And I hope that in my lifetime I get to hear our National Anthem being played at the Olympiad—even at least just once!
