Australia’s Hold Medal Table Lead, Russians & Americans Nipping

The Americans received a boost to their medal standings on Friday when Gunnar Bentz gave them their second gold medal of the meet, but the Australians still sit atop it with 9 total gold medals.

With still 33 medals, at least, to be awarded on the final day Saturday, things are wide open. The Australians have the boys’ 50 free, where Mack Horton seems to be about a lock for gold, but the Americans’ medal hopes are greater in the boys’ 200 IM and the boys’ 200 backstroke.

Don’t sleep on the Russians, either. With two more relays, where the Russians have been so good, and big hopes in a lot of relays, on paper, they may actually come out on top of this medal standing.

Note that the rankings are done based on golds, then silvers to break ties, then bronzes to break ties, and the Americans hae the most silver medals (7) so far.

The Australians are nipping at the heels of the Americans in the points standings, which are a better indicator of depth than the medals tables are. Expect Team USA to hold that, as there’s a few holes in Australia’s lineup on Saturday. 33 teams have scored so far at the meet, meaning putting a swimmer into the top 16, which is great to see.

Braden, you look a little tired after this long summer of big meets. 🙂 For Mack Horton it’s the 1500 free. And for USA there isn’t the boys’ 200 IM. Gunnar Bentz has already won it. I see a very big day for Russia. Schedule. Men’s 100 free final. Percy for Australia vs Dressel for USA vs Sedov for Russia. Women’s 200 breast final. Solnceva for Ukraine Men’s 200 back final. Very open race Women’s 100 fly final. Chimrova for Russia Men’s 1500 free final Horton for Australia Women’s 50 free final. Nasretdinova for Russia or Meilutyte for Lithuania Men’s 200 fly final. Seliskar for USA vs Japanese swimmers Men’s 50 breast final. Stevens for Slovenia vs Zanko for Russia… Read more »

Why isn’t it called a gold medal table because coountries are placed in order by golds only.

Jg

I would like to give a shout to the competitors from countries in the midst of turmoil & even civil wars . Egypt has a good team & although chosen under the Morsi regime – they have girls & mixed teams. Lebanon has some fine swimmers here.

But a big hurrah to the young Syrian girls. It might be frightening to have to line up with people who are threatening to bomb you just about when you get back.
