Michael Phelps has won the most Gold Medals for 2012 Olympics and also for the 2008 and 2004 Olympics. With 18 Gold Medals he is also ranked number 1 for the most Gold Medals over a career having twice the number of Gold Medals as the 9 won by the nearest competitors who were Larisa Latynina, Paavo Nurmi, Mark Spitz, & Carl Lewis
The United States of America has won the most Olympic medals over the last 5 years, with a total of 172 medals earned during the 2006, 2008, and 2010 Olympic games.
Since the Olympics hasn't yet started as of August 4, 2008, it's kind of hard to tell who will win what and how many. The opera ain't over until the fat lady sings. Australia will win the medals that they earn through sports competition. UPDATE: Australia won 46 medals (14 gold, 15 silver, 17 bronze) at the 2008 Games in Beijing.
the united states won over 1220 silver medals
0 ... Samoa's best finish at the 2008 Games was a 4th place by Ele Opeloge in women's super heavyweight (over 75 kg) weightlifting.

USA has won 19 medals so far in the Summer Olympics of 2012. They are definitely expected to win more. By the end of the Olympics, Michael Phelps is able to win 22 medals. We are going to win at least a couple more medals before it is all over. (:
