Absolutely. In fact, Texas will likely be one of the strongest competitors in the Olympics.
If you look at the performance of Texas athletes in the 2016 Rio Olympics and compare it with the performance of all other countries, only two other countries outperformed Texas athletes in gold medals – the United States and Great Britain.Texas Olympians racked up 26 gold medals by themselves. The U.S. hauled in 46 golds, and Great Britain picked up 27. China also collected a Texas-equaling 26.
Even if you factor in silver and bronze medals, Texas tied for fifth (with Germany, at 42 total medals each) in the country medal count by itself.
