USC Wins Olympics College Medal Count

Per CollegeSports 360 USC is #1 with 24 medals; 12 gold, 9 silver and 3 bronze. Congratulations to #2 Florida (21 medals), #3 The University of California (16 medals) and #4 Stanford (16 medals) for their amazing performance. Uclol turned in a credible performance with 8 medals, that's 1 more than vaunted Princeton.

The University of Southern California – led by its traditional strength in swimming (10 medals) and track-and-field (6) – finished atop CollegeSports360's exclusive "college medal board" for the 2012 Olympics with 24 total medals (12 gold, 9 silver & 3 bronze). USC's other medals included four in women's water polo, three women's volleyball (two of those on the beach) and a women's soccer medal. The University of Florida (21; 9G-6S-6B) finished second on this medal board (11-swim, 6-T&F, 3-wsoc, 1-w. tennis) while bay-area rivals California (16; 11G-1S-4B) and Stanford (16; 12G-2S-2B) tied for third. USC and Stanford ended up even for the most golds (12), followed by Cal's 11 and Florida's 9.

UPDATE: Add another Bronze! USC's final tally is 25 per Fox Sports West

August 12, 2012 LOS ANGELES – USC-affiliated athletes won more total medals (25, including 12 golds, 9 silvers and 4 bronzes) at the just-concluded 2012 London Olympics than any American university, making these Games the most successful in Trojan history.

USC's 25 total medals and 12 gold medals are school records for a single Olympics, breaking the previous highs of 24 total medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Games and 10 golds at both the 1948 London Games and the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Troy's 12 gold medals in London tied with Stanford for the most by a university in 2012. USC continued its streak of having won a gold medal at every Summer Olympics from 1912.

If USC athletes had competed as a country in 2012, they would have placed sixth in the gold medal standings at the London Games and 11th in overall medals.
