Top Medaillen-Siegernationen der Olympischen Sommespiele

By Chris Dinsdale

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Die modernen Olympischen Spiele wurden 1896 gegründet, die Tradition der Verleihung von Gold, Silber und Bronzemedaillen hat erst mit den Spielen von 1904 begonnen. Die Tokio Sommerspiele 2020 werden ein Jahr später als geplant durchgeführt, Grund dafür ist die Corona virus Pandemie.

In 2016, at the Rio Olympics, the United States topped the medal table with 46 gold medals, 37 silver and 38 bronze for a total of 121 awards. Followed by Great Britain in second place (27 gold) -- the first country to increase its medal tally at the summer Games immediately following one it hosted -- and China third with 26 gold medals.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games medals are made from recycled small electronic devices, gathered over a two year period from April 2017 to March 2019.

Graphic designer Junichi Kawanishi won a nationwide competition to design the medals which he says symbolise the energy of athletes, the diversity of the games, and the warm glow of friendship.
