Los Angeles 1932 Olympics Medals Table

Officially known as the Games of the X Olympiad, the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics took place from 30 July to 14 August, 1932. It has 1,332 athletes hailing from 37 NOCs, participating in 116 events in 14 different sports. The Games recorded the lowest number of participants since the 1904 Summer Olympics. Key reasons behind this decline were quoted as high costs of travelling to Los Angeles and the ongoing worldwide recession.

Talking about the medals won during the international multi-sport event, well, the host nation United States of America made it to the first spot by winning 41 gold, 32 silver and 30 bronze medals. Placed on the second and third positions were Italy and France, winning 12 and 10 gold medals respectively. The 1932 Los Angeles Olympics also marked the debut of NOCs from the Republic of China and Colombia. An interesting thing about the Games was that the organizing committee didn't keep any record of the Games' finances. However, the newspapers reported that the profit earned from the Games amounted to $1,000,000. Another little-known fact about these Games is that the selection process for its host nation comprised of a single bid, from Los Angeles, which finally hosted the 1932 Summer Olympics.
