LONDON – The soundtrack to the London Olympics went a little like this: Paul McCartney performing Hey Jude during the opening ceremony. The official song of the Games, Muse’s Survival, blaring at every venue. The music to Chariots of Fire during every medal ceremony. And The Star-Spangled Banner when gold medals were awarded.
Team USA took the top spot in the medals race for the fifth consecutive Summer Olympics, winning 104 medals to China’s 87. The Americans also topped the gold medal count, 46-38.
