The number of the total medals of each country during the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The following medal table is a list of National Olympic Committees(NOCs) and one non-NOC team ranked by the number of gold medals won by their athletes during the 2016 Summer Olympics inRio de Janeiro, from 5 to 21 August 2016.[1]

Vietnam, Kosovo, Fiji, Singapore, Puerto Rico, Bahrain, Jordan,Tajikistan and Côte d’Ivoire won their first Olympic gold medals. They were also Kosovo’s, Fiji’s, and Jordan’s first Olympic medals of any kind.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11] Kuwaiti shooter Fehaid Al-Deehani became the first independent athlete to win a gold medal,[12][13] though gold medals have been won under the Olympic flag by other entities, such as the Unified Team in 1992.

Great Britain became the first country in the history of the modern Olympics to increase their tally of medals in the subsequent games after being the host nation – winning 67 total medals at these games compared to the 65 won in London four years previously.[14][15] Host country Brazil won seven gold medals, their most at any single Summer Olympics.

The design for the Olympic medals for the 2016 Summer Olympics featured the largest medals in terms of diameter of any medal presented at the Olympics.[16] The golds are purer than any presented at all preceding Olympics. The silvers were made from recycling mirrors, solder, and X-ray plates. Much of the copper used in the bronzes came from recycling waste from the mint that minted the medals. The obverse of the medals features Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.[17]

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 aNational 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.[18][19]

The 2016 Summer Olympic program featured 28 sports with 41 disciplines, and a total of 306 events, tentatively resulting in 306 medal sets to be distributed. Athletes from 87 countries won medals, and 59 of them won at least one gold medal. Both of these categories set new records. 120 countries did not win a medal.

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.

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