USA top medal rankings after second day in Rio

The United States have climbed to the top of the medal count after two days of action at the Olympic Games in Rio.

Team USA took the final two gold medals up for grabs on the second day of the games, with both coming in the pool.

Katie Ledecky set a new world record to claim the women’s 400m Freestyle, while Michael Phelps, who was winning his 19th gold medal, helped the 4X100m Freestyle team to glory.

China are in second place in the medal rankings, having also won three golds – in the women’s 10m Air Pistol, women’s Synchronised 3m Springboard and men’s 56kg weightlifting.

Australia led the way after day one with two gold’s and added one to that through Catherine Skinner, who won the women’s Trap Shooting competition.

However, while all three nations have three golds, the US are well ahead due to the number of silver and bronze medals they have taken.
