Today's Medal Count: Team USA Closes the Gap

The big news today was Team GB going from eleventh to fifth in the span of just thirty minutes, while Team USA tied China in golds, with the overall lead going to China using silvers as the tiebreaker.

Keeping with tradition mentioning Italy every single day in the medal count no matter what, it's worth noting that they took gold in women's team fencing today. Italy now has this accomplishment to go along with Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli, defeating the Carthaginians in the Second Punic War, and Venetian gondolas.
