2012 London Medal Tally
* this is the medal tally for the 2012 Olympics. Did you want the Tokyo 2021 medal tally?
This is the final medal tally list after completion of the 2012 London Olympics. A total of 85 countries won at least one medal. As per tradition, the list order is based first on the number of gold medals, then silver and bronze.
Please note, this list may not be up to date, as sometimes athletes have their medals taken away years after the event. Even in 2019, there had been more than 60 athletes disqualified from the London 2012 Olympic Games under the International Olympic Committee's sample retesting program, many of these medal winners.
This list has been updated after the shot putter from Belarus was stripped of her gold medal after the Olympics for doping, elevating New Zealand to first place in that event. There are probably more changes needed.

- Living in the UK, I cannot tell you how proud i am of the organizers, and even more proud of our athletes. To get way above 50% of the golds the US got (and not in swimming ... ) with 1/6th the population is staggering. I live where the Team GB cyclists are based. To win 70% of the golds avalaible is astounding. Well done Team GB and well done to the "London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games". Roll on Rio in 4 years! (from James, Aug 2012)
- Very proud ... small little Hungary only with 10 million people with 8 gold medals ... well done ... OK us AUSSI'S did well too. You quess where I was born?? HA HA HA. (from eva novak, 13 Aug 2012)
- So China and the United States dominate the medals table. My own observation from travels over much of China is that there are very few sport facilities. The university where I worked in Chengdu (with 30,000 students) had a couple of basketball courts, a very hard clay football pitch and some concrete table tennis tables. Out in the countryside, you can travel for weeks without seeing a football pitch or even anyone running. Swimming pools are unheard of and most of the population cannot swim to save their lives. One of the memorable events during my stay in China was seeing a drowned body floating by in a canal.
China needs to get its act together and make sporting and recreational facilities available to the billion+ who have no access to them at all. It is not good enough to have an elite minority cloistered in sporting academies and the vast majority getting nothing at all. (from Carl 65, 11 Aug 2012)
- I'm Chinese, and I can tell you in fact it's impossible for Chinese to enjoy a lot of sports until our population decreased to similiar with U.S.. First, most young people from countriside tend to work as labor at very young age, while their counterpart in city forced to study for exam everyday. So even there is enough facility, nobody use them, much less some so call 'elite school' (you know, only for exam) even remove the sports facility their owned to prevent students use them. Second, it's quite impossible for Chinese to build so many sports equipment, simply no space (both in the city or coutriside). If you want to grap more land, you will cause clash between resident with goverment; there are already to much these things for new factories, if you want to get the land from someone live on it to build tennis court, what do you think will take place? Third, one thing the Chinese official won't tell you is that factually many local goverment in sub-provincial administration is in heavy debt. The only thing they want to do is to wrap it, and don't spend more, until they can leave that position. And not like U.S., the rich in China have very poor virtue, so you can't image a Chinese tycoon who donnate some money to build public swimming pool, in fact they thought that's the things of goverment! of course they are willing to spend money for their own child. By the way, I never heard there could be drown body floating river in China. Maybe some very rare thing happens (such as an incidence or even murder), but this type thing is more likely in Africa or South Asia, not in East Asia (even in the most underdevelopped area in East Asia. simply the culture is different) (from Thorlabsuser, 13 Aug 2012)
