This must be your first time watching the Summer Olympics if you're surprised that the US is ranked number 1 in the medal count.

Here the information on Gold, Silver and Bronze

Weighted ranking

Systematic rankings based upon a weighted point system with the most points awarded to a gold medal have also been devised. Those used in the official reports were:

1908: 5:3:1 — gold medals 5 points, silver medals 3 points, and bronze medals 1 point.[5][26]
1912: 3:2:1 — the report also compares this "Swedish" method with the 5:3:1 "English" method.[6]
1924: 10:5:4:3:2:1 — so points were awarded for 4th to 6th places, where no medals were awarded.[7][8] The IOC did require top six finishers to be listed in the report in a "table of honor".[10]
1928: 6:5:4:3:2:1 — separate totals are listed depending on whether the military patrol was included or not, as its status was downgraded belatedly to demonstration sport.[9]
1932: same as 1924, and described as the usual scheme in newspapers.[10]

The 1908 and 1924 systems share the points for tied placings: for example, in a two-way tie for second, each gets half the sum of the points for second and third place.[5][7][8]

In 2004, a 3:2:1 system was used by the Australian Geography Teachers Association.[37] This weighting values a gold medal as much weight as a silver and a bronze medal combined. In response to the 2008 controversy over medal rank, Jeff Z. Klein in a New York Times blog post proposed a 4:2:1 system as a compromise between the total-medals and golds-first methods.[38] These systems have been popular in certain places at certain times, but none of them have been adopted on a large scale.

I was wondering why China still in second place while Great Britian got more silvers..

China 15 Gold, 13 Silver, 17 Bronze
Great Britain 15 Gold, 16 Silver and 7 Bronze.. So

China got 121 points
Great Britain got 130 points..

HUH.. GB should be in Second place..

Am using 1908 Medals points, but GB still get more points if you use 2008 medals points which is I believed 4:2:1

Nm my mistake I just re-did the math by using 2008 chart, China got 103 points, Great Britain got 99 points.
