Go Team USA! The US Olympic medal count of 2021 proves the United States of America is still a powerhouse when it comes to the Olympic Games.

The United States is one of 206 countries to compete in the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics, which started on July 23 and run until August 8. The games, which were originally scheduled for 2020 but postponed due to the current health crisis, sees 11,237 athletes from around the world compete for one of three medals in their respective sport: gold, silver and bronze.

More from StyleCaster

Of those athletes, more than 600 are from the United States. Those athletes include returning Olympians like Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky, who have both won medals at past Olympics, as well as new faces like Sunisa Lee and Regan Smith, who are competing at the games for the first time.

So far, more than 70 athletes have won medals for Team USA (with over a 20 of those medals being gold.) While it’s been a different year for the Olympics, with no crowds and athletes wearing masks on podiums and in interviews, there’s no doubt that Team USA will always be number one in our hearts. Ahead is the US Olympic medal count of 2021 and each American who has taken home a medal in Tokyo so far.

For more about the Olympics, check out Jeremy Fuchs’ 2021 book, Total Olympics: Every Obscure, Hilarious, Dramatic, and Inspiring Tale Worth Knowing. The book, which was called an “indispensable Olympic resource” and “pure fun” by The New York Times, follows the history of the Olympics, from how it began in a a Victorian English town called Much Wenlock to the discontinued sports that are no longer around like tug of war, firefighting, painting and, yes, live pigeon shooting. The bestseller, which features hundreds of true tales and historical photographs, also includes stories from both internationally known and little known athletes like gymnast Shun Fujimoto, who led his team to victory with a broken knee.
