One week after the opening ceremony, the Olympics has proceeded as per schedule granting a total of 113 gold medals, 115 silvers and 125 bronzes.
China and the United States of America have been fighting the battle for the top position in the medals table.
The USA's medal haul has been helped by a number of medal winners who have won more than one gold (Phelps being the most prominent among them).
China has surged ahead thanks to total dominance in events like table tennis, badminton and shooting among others.
Looking from a different perspective, let us see which continent can lay claim to be the most dominant in the Olympics.
The results were a bit different from what one imagined. Let us see in the next slides.
