2016 Rio Olympics: Medal Count Standings Through Fourth Full Day Of Events (Updated)

The fourth day of the 2016 Rio Olympics is underway, and the competition is really heating up as the United States has held the overall medal lead for the past few days. As of 5:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, the USA has widened their lead and have won 22 medals with six of them being gold. The current medal count standings have been updated, but there are a lot more events coming up throughout the rest of the evening.

One of the biggest victories of Tuesday, so far, was that by the U.S. women’s gymnastics team which was absolutely dominating. As reported by the NY Times, they took the gold medal in the team competition with Russia being a full eight points behind and taking the silver. China came in third and took the bronze medal.

It was just an all around incredible day for Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian. They avoided big and simple mistakes while pulling ahead early and just continuing to pour it on.

NBC Olympics recapped the judo competition from earlier on Wednesday and Team USA’s Travis Stevens ended up taking silver in the men’s 81kg class. Stevens couldn’t overcome Khasan Khalmurzaev of Russia, but he was able to take the silver which is the first medal in men’s judo for the United States since 2004.

The following list has the countries and the medals they have won as far as Gold, Silver, and Bronze in the 2016 Rio Olympics. The order is going by the total medal count and not which country has the most gold, silver, or bronze medals individually.

Final Update at 10:55 p.m. ET

Update #1 at 9:30 p.m. ET

In all, there are 205 countries competing in these Olympics, so if a country isn’t listed, they haven’t won any medals at all yet.

There are a number of medal events that will still take place on Tuesday including weightlifting, swimming, and much more. So far, the swimming events at the 2016 Rio Olympics have been some of the most exciting and there is going to be no stopping that each night.

As those events conclude, the list above will be updated to show the full medal results for day two of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The medal count numbers are building up with each passing hour of each passing day and the U.S. has the lead, but can they hold onto it?

The overall medal count standings were a bit back-and-forth for the first couple of days, but some countries are now starting to separate from the pack. France and Russia have really made big impacts in the last couple of days, but they are still far behind the leaders. The United States and China are the overall leaders in the fourth day, but there is still a lot of time left in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
