Asian Games 2010 Medals Tally: China still leads, now with 67 medals

The competition continues to heat up at the Asian Games 2010 in Guangzhou, China

Now on its Day 3, over 200 medals were already awarded to winning athletes, and the host country is getting most of the medals so far.

As of 12 noon today, China already won 39 gold, 16 silver and 12
bronze medals, totaling to 67 medals.

The host country, which was hailed Champion since 1982 Asian Games, now has a very comfortable lead over South Korea, in 2nd place, which
has 15 gold, 10 silver and 13 bronze models while Japan follows with 8 golds, but with 20 silver and 15 bronzemedals.

Since 1978, those 3 countries were just switching places in the Top 3 of Asian Games. And China has always been on top spot starting in 1982.

And for 2010, it's too early but it seems like China, Korea and Japan
will end up in the Top 3 again.

There are 45 Asian countries competing and so far, only 20 of them have won at least 1 medal. And that includes the Philippines which has
2 bronze medals as of this posting.

Thanks to dancing partners Ronnie Vergara and Charlea Lugaras who won
2 bronzes in the Dancesport event.
