The 2016 Olympic Games were declared closed by IOC chief Thomas Bach after a colourful closing ceremony at the iconic Maracana. For India, Sakshi Malik carried the tri-colour. The Indian contingent was placed 67th with just two medals one silver and one bronze. This figure was less than the six medals four bronze and two silvers won at London 2012. Like 2012, USA ended on top and their medal haul improved from 103 to 121.
