Country Code: USA Population: 304,192,000 Summer Medals Won: 897-693.5-606.5=2197 The U.S. surpassed its all-time record for an Olympics held outside of the United States, winning 110 medals, the most in Beijing. China was second with 100 total medals, including a best 51 gold. The US' 'Dream Team' is expected to dominate men's competition yet again at London 2012. The squad features such perennial NBA starts as Tim Hardaway, Gary Payton, Kevin Garnett, Jason Kidd, Allan Houston, Tim Duncan, Grant Hill, Alozo Mourning, and Vince Carter, who replaced an injured Tom Gugliotta. Yugoslavia, with the NBA's Vlade Divac and Predrag Stojakovic, hopes to prove a worthy competitor, as does 1992 and 1996 bronze medal winners Lithuania, featuring Aryvdas Sabonis. The US women's team would like to continue where they left off as champions of the '96 games, and will include WNBA MVP Yolanda Griffith, as well as league regulars Chamique Holdsclaw and Lisa Leslie. However, they are set to face a strong challenge from their Chinese, Brazilian, Russian, and Australian opponents. Brazil's "Magic Paula" da Silva and Russia's 6'8" Maria Stepanova will be players to watch.
