Team USA and China both won six medals on Tuesday and remained tied for the most medals overall with 23. Both countries won four gold medals, one silver medal and one bronze medal.

Gymnastics and swimming provided the biggest reason for the medal haul for the U.S. The women's gymnastics team took home the gold on Tuesday. The U.S. won gold in the men's 4x200-meter freestyle relay and women's 200-meter freestyle (Allison Schmitt). Michael Phelps had a silver medal in the men's 200-meter butterfly and Caitlin Leverenz took home the bronze in the women's 200-meter individual medley. However, the U.S. also claimed a gold in men's skeet shooting (Vincent Hancock).

Phelps' two medals on the day gave him an Olympic record 19 overall over three Olympics.
