Final Rio medal count: USA nearly doubles total of closest country

The U.S. continues to dominate the Summer Games, as the Americans were all over the podium at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Team USA finished with a total of 121 medals -- 51 more than second-place China. That is the largest margin by any country in a non-boycotted Olympics since 1932, when the U.S. beat Italy by 67 medals.

The Americans also topped their previous high of 110 Olympic medals, which they set in Beijing in 2008.

Michael Phelps once again took home the most medals of any Olympian (six), while Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles will each leave with five.

U.S. women took home 27 gold medals, by far the most of any country's female contingent, and 61 medals total.

Here is a look at the final medal count for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
