Rio Olympic Gymnastics medals

medal table

China has been the dominant nation at the past two Olympic Games, but in Rio the USA, led by Biles, was number one with 12 overall medals. Their haul includes four golds, along with six silvers and two bronzes.

Following up on their stunning success in London in 2012, Great Britain surpassed itself with its best-ever results, ending with six medals, including two historic golds, their first in Artistic Gymnastics.

Until the very last moment the Russians weren’t certain to take part in the Games, but they proudly collected eight medals, though just one title.

With only two bronze medals, China dropped to the 11th on the medal table, behind host Brazil.

I understand that medals are the only thing that matters for funding in China. No doubt they’ll be a shake up in the coaching staff.

Looking at the Men’s competition only, GBR was the top nation.
