In 10th place on Sunday, France will surely occupy 8th place with 33 medals. Although behind Germany and Italy (37 and 40 charms, respectively), the French group finished ahead of its two neighbors thanks to a better distribution of minerals. The number of gold medals equaled ten titles, and the blue delegation won the silver medal twelve times (eleven for Germany and ten for Italy).
The untouchables of the United States and China
At the end of the last day that saw the handball players win, France could have secured an extra place in the medal standings. Unfortunately for the French group, Dutchman Abdi Nagy was decorated with money for the marathon just before that morning. The number of gold and silver medals is equal, which means that France is only three bronze medals ahead of the Netherlands (14 out of 11).
On the other hand, there is no picture of the first two countries in the ranking: the United States and China. With 113 medals, including 39 titles, the Americans have a good lead over all of their competitors. Secondly, China is content with 88 spells, of which 38 are golden. Japan, the illustrious host of this Olympics, completed the podium with 58 medals, including 27 titles. Enough to get ideas for France, the next country to host the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.
