966 total medals were awarded for the events. There is no total medal count by athlete and only by event because hundreds were passed out for the 36 medals given to winners of just the 6 Men's and Women's Team events in Handball, Indoor Volleyball, Football, Field Hockey, Water Polo, and Basketball. There were 302 Gold Medals 304 Silver Medals and 356 Bronze Medals for the 302 events. Many events did not have Bronze Medal elimination for the semi final losers and both won the bronze Medals while the winners went on play for the Silver and Gold Medal
