The Rio Olympics have produced the most overall medals (113) since the 1984 Olympics, where we captured 174 total medals. The 1984 Olympics were hosted in Los Angeles, giving us the home team advantage, so that may explain the spike in our medal haul. The only other Olympics were we exceeded 113 total medals was in 1904, where we earned 239 total medals.

So, all in all Rio is our third best all-time Olympic performance, and our best in 32 years. And we're not even done earning medals yet...Go USA!

I should note that the 1904 Olympics were in St. Louis, MO, so Rio has also been our best Olympic performance in a venue outside of the United States.
