Team USA's Most Successful Olympics Since LA

by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

As the Rio Olympics drew to a close on Sunday evening, Team USA stood top of the medal table by a long distance.

They won 121 medals in total, their most successful haul since the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. That year, the Soviet Union, East Germany and Cuba boycotted the event, more than likely contributing to U.S. success. The 1904 Games in St. Louis were the most successful games in U.S. Olympic history with American athletes bagging 231 medals.

This chart shows the number of medals won by the U.S. at the Summer Olympics since 1972.
