China has been crushing the Paralympic swimming medal table all week, and finished the 2016 Rio Paralympics with what is believed to be the most swimming medals in Paralympic history.
China took home 37 golds, 30 silvers and 25 bronzes for a whopping 92 total medals. Though data isn’t available for every Paralympic event, the highest number we’ve been able to find is 65 from the Netherlands at the 1976 Paralympics in Montreal.
The Netherlands earned 38 golds in that meet, just edging out China’s 2016 total of 37.
Ukraine also had a historic run in total medals, nabbing 74 in all, 25 of them gold. Great Britain and Northern Ireland finished firmly in third in the medal tables, leading the U.S. in golds (16-14) and total medals (47-37).
