2012 London Olympic Results

The 2012 London Olympics came to a close last week.  It wasn't a big surprise that the USA topped the medal standings.  With 46 golds, 29 silvers and 29 bronzes, the USA left London with 104 medals.  Way to go USA!!

The Czech Republic did a fine job as well.  With 4 golds, 3 silvers and 3 bronzes, the country's 10 medals put them in 19th place.  Not bad for a country that traditionally does much better in the Winter Olympics.

A big congrats to all of the athletes who competed in the games.  It's a huge honor just to be able to compete for your country.  Here are the Czech medal winners.  Huge props!!
