NC Athletes Beat Canada in Medals Count
If North Carolina were a country, it would have finished 13th in the medal standings.
The 19 total medals won in London by athletes with strong ties to the Tar Heel state would rank right behind Ukraine (20) and just ahead of Canada (18).
What’s more, the state’s haul of 10 gold medals would rank eighth in the world.
