Rio Olympics 2016 Medal Tally & Winners List: Sports & Country wise Medal Counts at the Olympic games

Keep a track of all the gold, silver, and bronze medals won by the countries during Rio 2016.

The Gold, Silver, and Bronze from the 2012 Olympics in London

One of the best parts of the Olympics is the time spent analyzing the medals tally. The medals tally will allow you to see the number of gold, silver, and bronze medals each country has bagged and which country has come out on top. 

No country boasts of more success in the Olympics than the United States. They are the clear favourites to clinch the highest number of gold medals in Rio. In the last Olympics four years ago at London, the US finished with 46 gold medals and 103 in total. China is the likeliest, if at all, to dethrone the Americans this time around.

It was in 2008, Beijing Olympics that the host nation won more gold medals than the US. They ended with 51 gold medals with a 15-medal lead over the USA. Even when China dominated in the gold medals tally in 2008, the US was still number one in the total medals tally with 110 medals.

The likes of Great Britain, Russia, South Korea and Germany will be shuffling between the next few positions with India considerably lower in the list but slowly climbing her way up in the recent years.

According to the ‘Olympics and Economics report’ released by Goldman Sachs, India will win 8 medals, including one gold at the Rio Olympics. They’ve pointed out a bronze set for mixed double pair Sania Mirza – Rohan Bopanna and a silver for 50m-pistol shooter Jitu Rai. The medals predictions feature two additional medals to their 2012 Olympics haul.

Despite any prediction figures, India still goes into Rio with lots of hope eager to see the results of a new system for athletes training. The last four years has primarily seen a positive change after India’s performance in the 2012 London Olympics.

Athletes are no longer bound to Sports Authority of India’s training camps and are now allowed to train with whomever, they want, anywhere in the world without having to worry about the funds from the Indian government earmarked for them. Almost all of the 12 Indian shooters, the country’s biggest medal hopes, trained in different parts of the world with their personal coaches.

How many medals India will win is tough to predict but what we can expect is a bigger medal haul than the 2012 London Olympics. Every extra medal represents progress for Indian sports.
