In total 107 of 280 Russian athletes won medals at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, President of Russia’s Olympic Committee Alexander Zhukov told reporters.
"For our team and the whole country the start of the Olympics was difficult because the possibility of our team’s participation was under question. Despite this fact, the team performed successfully in most of the events from the very beginning. 107 of 280 athletes go home with medals, we took medals in 20 events," he said.
