So I read somewhere that Michigan, if it were its own country, would be 28th in the world for most medals won in the Olympics. This got me thinking (and Googleing) and I really couldn't find a list of Universities and their medal counts all in one place.
I did some research and learned that Michigan has 65 bronze, 35 silver, and 38 gold medals with a total of 138. This does put us in 28th place in the world for total medals won (if we were a country). Also, we are tied for 28th for gold medals with Belgium.
We aren't the best American university though! USC leads with 258 total medals followed by UCLA (230), Stanford (206), California (159), Florida (145), and then Texas (139).
Just thought I'd share with y'all. Thoughts?
