Sweden in the Summer Olympics

Sweden is not one of the giants when it comes to Summer Olympics, but when it comes to Winter Olympics they are far better. During the Beijing Olympics in 2008 Sweden did not get one single gold medal, but they got four silver medals and one bronze medal.

In London the Swedish troop got one gold medal, four silver medals and three bronze medals. If they keep that progress up in the Rio Olympics we can expect at least two gold medals and quite a lot of silver and bronze medals. That would be cool, wouldn’t it?

The Summer Olympics will start on August 5th and last until August 21st. But, there will be action taking place in Rio already on August 3rd where there will be played several football matches and more action taking place.
