The United States will have a chance to get back to the top of the gold medal count, as the country now ranks third in times its athletes have topped the podium. As of 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, Japan leads the gold medal count with 15, followed closely by China at 14 and the USA at 13. The Russian Olympic Committee and Australia are tied for a distant fourth with eight apiece.

While America hasn’t had the winning start many expected the country to have going into the 2020 Summer Olympics, its representatives have amassed an impressive 37 medals in total. That’s nine more than the next closest competitor in China and 10 more than third-place Russia at this juncture. Here’s a look at the latest medal count for the top participants at the Tokyo Games:

Summer Olympics 2020 Medal Count

According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the United States is still a massive favorite to win the most gold medals in Tokyo. The country is currently -600 chalk to top the podium more than any other, betting odds that translate to one needing to risk $6 to return $1 on the outcome. That line has shifted slightly from the beginning of the 2020 Summer Olympics—when the USA was a -700 favorite prior to the Opening Ceremony—but not too significantly despite the cooler than expected start the nation has had.

Americans are also still projected to claim more overall medals than anyone else, with the latest odds showing the country is laying -1200 odds for this prop bet. The implied probability of this betting line is a shade over 92%, indicating bookmakers are quite confident Team USA keeps up the trend of medaling in many of the events it participates in. China is considered the only realistic competitor in both the gold and total medal race, but at +470 and +650 odds, respectively, it’s still a long shot the country can usurp the United States.
