My sister compiled the following stats:
Gold Medals – 17 to the men/ 29 to the women… (Britain scored 29 medals in total between their men and women)
Silver Medals – 15 to the men/ 14 to the women
Bronze – 13 to the men/ 15 to the women/ 1 Mixed (Tennis mixed doubles)
Total Medal Count – 45 to the men/ 58 to the women/ 1 Mixed (Tennis mixed doubles)
Events where ONLY our men medaled – Archery
Events where ONLY our women medaled – Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Cycling (Mountain Bike), Cycling (Road), Cycling (Track), Football (Soccer), Fencing, Judo, Volleyball, and Water Polo.
Maybe our women are more than just pretty faces!!
They definitely are!
