OLYMPICS: 2016 Rio Summer Olympics – Medal Count

This is the table of the medal count of the 2016 Summer Olympics, based on the medal count of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). These rankings sort by the number of gold medals, earned by a National Olympic Committee (NOC). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically by IOC Country Code. Although this information is provided by the IOC, the IOC itself does not recognize or endorse any ranking system.

Athletes from 87 countries won medals, leaving 120 countries without a medal, and 59 of them won at least one gold medal. Both of these categories set new records.

In boxing (13 disciplines), judo (14), taekwondo (8), and wrestling (18), two bronze medals are awarded in each event (53 additional bronze medals total).

Two gold medals were awarded for a first-place tie in the women’s 100 metre freestyle swimming event. No silver medal was awarded as a consequence.

Three silver medals were awarded for a second-place tie in the men’s 100 metre butterfly swimming event. No bronze medal was awarded as a consequence.

Two bronze medals were awarded for a third-place tie in the women’s 100 metre backstroke swimming and in the men’s K-1 200 metres canoeing events.
