Tokyo Olympics: All the best stats from the 2020 Games

It was a great 16 days in Tokyo 2020. There have been great sporting dramas, new heroes, world records being broken, and a lot of history. What are the stats from the Olympic Games? Take a look at BBC Sport and Nielsen Gracenote China beats the US to the top table The United States is at the top of the medal table for six consecutive Olympic Games. They have won the most medals at all seven Olympic Games. Japan is third in the medal table with 58 medals, 27 gold and Tokyo 1964 as host. Great Britain was second in Rio 2016 while London 2012 was third. This is Team GB’s second-best performance at an Olympic Games overseas, behind Rio (67 medals). The rest For the first time since Beijing 2008, Australia returns to the top six medal tables. Italy was the only country that won 40 medals at the Summer Games, beating out New Zealand (20 medals), Brazil (21 medals) and the Netherlands (36). Brazil repeated Great Britain's feat, doubling their Olympic medal total within 24 hours of hosting. Since 1990's reunification of East Germany and West Germany, Germany has not finished in the top six medal tables. At the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Germany was not among the top six medal-table teams. Record breaking world records Norway's Karsten Warsholm set a new world record by running a remarkable 45.94 seconds in the 400m hurdles race for men. This was one of the most memorable moments at the Games. Britain's historic swimming team also set a new world record in the 4x100m mixed Medley relay. However, despite concerns about shoe technology being too dominant in athletics in particular, Japan had fewer records. Simon Gleave is the head of Nielsen Gracenote's sports analysis. He stated that the 22 world records set in Tokyo are less than the 27 set in Rio five years back, despite the addition to sport climbing, which can break records. Only four world records were broken in weightlifting - three to the same person, Georgian super-heavyweight Lasha Talakhadze, compared to eight for Rio. British breadth Team GB won medals at Tokyo in 25 different sports-disciplines - more than any other nation. This chart has some sports grouped together This was Britain's greatest ever swimming performance. Great Britain's strength lies in the variety of sport-discipline combinations in which it has won medals. Team GB won medals in 25 different sport disciplines, breaking the Rio 2016 record of 23. As recently as Sydney 2000, Great Britain won medals only in 12 different sport-discipline combinations. China and the USA did not win medals in nearly as many sports as Great Britain. At each of the four Olympic Games, Team GB has won at least four medals at track cycling and in athletics.

This is the best total since 1904. Despite the performance of Katie Ledecky and Caeleb Dressel, the number of swimming golds is the lowest since 1992 Barcelona Olympics. To the annoyance of Michael Johnson, the USA's athletics performances set some unwelcome records. Their seven gold medals in athletics were the lowest ever recorded at the Olympics. The US men also had two gold medals in athletics, a record low. The men did not win any track golds and despite the fact that they won 10 total athletics medals, this was their lowest return in Games history. China China's core sports, including diving, shooting and weightlifting, as well as artistic gymnastics, table tennis, produced 25 golds in Tokyo and 46 medals, respectively (66% and 52%, respectively). China's Olympic record for diving was 12 and shooting was 11. Eight medals in weightlifting, including seven golds in weightlifting, were also Chinese Olympic records. It was also their best performance in tabletennis (four gold, three gold) since Sydney 2000. Fourth place table You don't want fourth place to be the top. This is because it is considered to be the "worst" position. Sometimes, the margins are too small to distinguish between joy and pain. Rio 2016 saw Team GB finish fourth on 16 occasions. This is a post-war record. They were still second in the medal table. Tokyo... Fourth place table at Tokyo Games Team.

This helped Canada improve its position in the overall medal tables. Great Britain, which sent more female athletes to the Games than the males, finished the Games with Lauren Price's gold in boxing and Laura Kenny as the flagbearer. They were however the only country that ranked in the top 10 in Tokyo for women's events with female competitors winning less than 30% of their country’s gold medals.

He stated: "The duel between Great Britain and Team GB was won by Team GB at the fourth Games in a Row, but it hasn't been as close on gold Medals between Team GB und Australia since 2008. Great Britain leads against their sporting rivals 17-10. It's a great time to be Italian It's been an amazing summer for Italy. It's been a great summer for Italy. Eurovision winners in May, Euro 2020 winners July. Matteo Berrettini was the first Wimbledon finalist. Now there is a record medal haul with 40, including 10 golds.
