If Tuscany were a country, it would have placed 24th in the overall standings of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The medal tally reads three golds, four silvers and three bronzes. Eleven medals, just like Switzerland and better than Greece, South Africa, Belgium and Turkey, confirming yet again the deep importance that Tuscany places on sports.
Of course this is all fun and games: Tuscany is not a country, and it does not have its own medal tally. But since Italy equaled its personal Olympic record of 28 medals (as in London 2012), considerable credit must go to the contribution made by the “Grand Duchy”.
