The 2011 Pan American Games medal table is a list of National Olympic Committees (NOCs) ranked by the number of gold medals won by their athletes during the 2011 Pan American Games, held in Guadalajara, capital of the Mexican state of Jalisco, from October 14 to October 30, 2011. Approximately 6,000 athletes from 41 NOCs will participate in 361 events in 36 sports.

The Cayman Islands won its first ever gold medal,[1] While the Saint Kitts and Nevis won its first ever Pan American Games medal.[2]

Medal table[edit]

The ranking in this table is based on information provided by the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) and is consistent with PASO convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a nation have won (in this context, a "nation" is an entity represented by a National Olympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If nations are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically by IOC country code.

In badminton,[3] boxing,[4] judo,[5] karate,[6] racquetball,[7] taekwondo,[8] table tennis,[9] and wrestling[10] two bronze medals will be awarded for each event. Also in bowling,[11] fencing[12] and squash[13] two bronze medals will be awarded in some events. Therefore, the total number of bronze medals will be greater than the total number of gold or silver medals.
