31 Medals and maybe 2 more?

 It was a great night for Gabon, as the country got her first ever Olympic medal through Anthony Obame in the Men's +80kg category of the Taekwondo tournament.

Twice world champion, Dada Modibo Keita lost out for a bronze medal due to an injury that didn't allow him compete in the bronze medal match.

As the London 2012 Olympic Games come to an end today, Africa's last chances to increase her medal count lie in the Men's Marathon and the Women's Modern Pentathlon where Aya Medany of Egypt is Africa's only representative.

Sadly the Africa Village which was closed a few days ago, was never reopened.

At present, Africa has a total of 31medals comprising: 9 Gold medals, 11 Silver and 11 Bronze, a drop from our medal count at Beijing, which was 40.
