Summer Olympic Games 1996 – 2012
As at the World Championships, Jamaica and the Bahamas do fantastically for their size but still trail the United States by some margin. In Rio, Usain Bolt could become the first to win the 100m for three Games in a row, and could take his overall total to nine golds.
Allyson Felix of the United States will attempt a rare double in the 200m and the 400m and, with relays, has a chance of winning four medals, and taking her career tally to ten.
It is less known that the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, such as Cuba and the Dominican Republic, also has a tradition in the shorter events but, with the fast sprints dominated by rival nations, it tends to focus more of its attention on hurdles and sprint endurance.
This table includes medals reallocated as a result of disqualifications. It does not take into account disqualifications where medals have yet to be reallocated, nor the results of retests of 2008 and 2012 samples, where disqualifications have yet to be confirmed.
