Off The Mark: Countries Winning Their 1st Gold In Rio
Story of the Olympics
While most headlines dealing with the Olympics in Rio this summer focused on the big sporting powers like the US, China and Russia, there were hundreds of lower-profile stories playing out right across the city. This chart, based on research by Sports Illustrated, shows the eight nations that had their first taste of gold during the games. This milestone was reached by the likes of Ivory Coast, when Chieck Cissé fought his way to victory in the men's 80kg taekwondo, and Fiji who powered to rugby sevens gold, beating Team GB in the final.
