There were 302 events and 962 metals awarded for those events. 2 Extra silver medals were awarded after ties in the event and some events did not have playoffs for the bronze medal and 2 were awarded for 56 events. Since many events involve pairs and teams the actual number of medals is higher
There were 2 more silver medals awarded than gold medals because there were 2 ties for second place in swimming (men's 50 meter breaststroke and 100 meter butterfly). When this happens, both athletes are awarded the silver medal and no bronze medal is awarded.

London is not a specific NOC (National Olympics Committee) - the number of medals won in the Olympics is counted by individual country. Great Britain won a total of 19 gold medals at the Olympics.
A Russian gymnast with 18 medals
US tops in the maximum number of medals
This number is 18 gold medals.
China received the most gold medals at the 2008 Olympics, but not the most total medals. When a country hosts the Olympics, they have a chance to receive more medals (especially gold) as they qualify for more competitions. This helped China beat the US in the largest number of gold medals, but the US still pulled out with the most total medals. I only say this because the US almost always receives the most gold medals of any country at the Olympics. It also depends on if you decide who "wins" the Olympics by the number of total medals or the number of gold only.
