Rank Country Country Name Gold Silver Bronze Total

Argentina is going to make its 24th appearance at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games scheduled to be held in Brazil from August 5 to 21, 2016.

Track Record of Argentina

Although the country won't see Lionel Messi in action, the national soccer team is still good enough to emerge as the best. With two titles in a row (2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics), soccer still remains the best team sport for Argentina, especially in Olympic Games.

Apart from soccer, the entire nation would hope for an impressive performance in hockey, basketball and volleyball. Yachting is another domain where Argentine players have performed and won consistently in the last few Olympics.

Argentinian athletes will also compete in the following sporting events: athletics, cycling, handball, rowing, shooting, swimming, tennis, and wrestling.

In 2012 London Olympics, Argentina had won four medals: gold, silver, and two bronze. This time around, the team would be looking to win more medals.
