2018 US Olympic Medals, Adjusted

Last updated: 2018-02-21. The score is 10 to 6

Americans have become increasingly more racist and intolerant of their fellow citizens in the past few years. Rhetoric and policies by Donald Trump, Mike Pence and various leaders of the Republic Party have sought to treat people who are not Straight, White and Christian as second class citizens.

This page will be updated throughout the olympics to track separate US Olympic Medal counts for “Straight White Christian America” and citizens who are routinely persecuted for their ethnicity, religion or sexuality.

Medal Counts may be adjusted as more background information on athletes becomes available.
