The Americans maintain their lead in the swimming medal table with 14 golds, giving them 10 more than any other country so far. They’ve also now moved ahead of China on the all-sports medal table. At the conclusion of the pool swimming events on day 6, China had 12 golds to the USA’s 11, but the Americans now have 16 golds to take a leg up over China’s 12.

So without swimming, the US All Sports medal total would be 6? Is that what you’re saying? And that the US has 31 of the 104 medals awarded in swimming thus far?

Is German swimming ever going to make a comeback?

Noticed this too. As recently as 1996, I want to say they had the overall 2nd highest medal haul in pool swimming, even though no golds (?).

MIKE IN DALLAS

Nope!

Since Biedermann and Steffen retired they have really dropped off.

Apart from Koch and Hentke winning the odd medal here or there they’ve been invisible. Even in open water swimming which they used to dominate not too long ago they’ve been overtaken by the French, Dutch, Italians, and Americans.
