2016 Rio Olympics: Medal Count Standings Through Seventh Full Day Of Events

The seventh full day of events are going on right now at the 2016 Rio Olympics, and there have been a lot of medals won already. Friday has turned into a medal frenzy as the United States currently sits atop the current medal standings, but China is keeping right up with them. Five countries have topped the 20-medal mark as of the time of this writing which is 6:30 p.m. ET, but there is a long way to go and plenty more to win.

NBC New York reported that the United States team won bronze in men’s foil (fencing) on Friday afternoon. That is a huge accomplishment as it is the first medal for the Americans in that event in 84 years, so one was long overdue.

The USA was led by Gerek Meinhardt and top-ranked Alexander Massialas who were able to destroy Italy by a score of 45-31. At one point, the duo was able to run a streak in which they outscored the Italians 20-1.

Earlier in the day on Friday, Brady Ellison was able to win a bronze medal for the United States in men’s individual archery. NBC reported that Ellison was able to defeat Sjef van der Berg of the Netherlands in a 6-2 match to take the medal.

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 9:55 p.m. ET

Update #1 at 8:55 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 Friday, including fencing, weightlifting, athletics (track & field), and swimming. If the past few nights have been any indication, then the swimming events are going to be some of the most thrilling of the day.

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 Guardian reported that Great Britain ended up taking the gold medal in cycling — men’s team pursuit with Australia taking silver and Denmark capturing bronze.

It’s really hard to say that the 2016 Rio Olympics has been anything but exciting and thrilling. Michael Phelps has continued to dominate in the pool. Team USA men’s basketball has suffered a scare yet stayed undefeated. The current medal standings are going to keep changing up in the remaining week and a half, but anything is possible to happen before all of the golds are awarded to those deserving of them.
