How many gold medals did USA have? Complete list of 2021 Olympic medalists from United States

Team USA is used to winning gold medals at the Olympic Games, especially during the summer.

In the history of the Summer Games, no country has medaled more than the United States. Through the 2021 Olympics, Team USA has 2,636 Summer Olympic medals to its name. Of those, 1,061 are gold. That’s better than 40 percent of Team USA’s medals.

In each of the previous two Olympic Games (2012 and 2016), Team USA earned 46 gold medals. Its high-water mark, 83, was reached during the 1984 Olympics, which were held in Los Angeles. Since 1948, the United States has never failed to win at least 32 gold medals. It kept that streak alive in 2021, although it fell short of matching its 2012 and 2016 hauls.
