Find the complete ranking of the Olympic medals of the 2020 Olympics.
The duel at the top in Tokyo will have lasted until the last day. Trailing by two gold medals at the start of Sunday’s final, the United States (39 gold, 41 silver, 33 bronze) finally managed to beat China (38 gold, 32 silver, 18 bronze) on the post. , thanks in particular to their basketball players – mistresses of Olympus since 1996 – and their volleyball players. A logical first place, in the end, because since 1912, the United States or the former Soviet Union have always shared the first places in this ranking, with one exception: China, in 2008 for the Olympic Games which it organized .
What ranking for France at the Tokyo Olympics?
What about France, next host of the Games in 2024? With 33 medals, the Habs appear far from their record of Rio (42), but they were apparently in preparation for “their” Games at home. They nevertheless display 10 gold medals, as many as in Rio.
By comparison, Great Britain had prepared for the London 2012 Games – a tidal wave with 65 medals – by already winning 51 medals in Beijing, including 19 in gold. The momentum is still there, since after Rio (67 medals), Tokyo remains in the same waters (65 medals including 22 titles).
