Attached is a quite lengthy PDF (Overall Olympic Records) detailing all the past Olympic records, bests, lists, and pretty much anything else you may want to know about what has happened at previous Olympics. All media, and all Olympic fans can use this to understand what has happened before and what may occur in Rio.
The lists are work provided to the US Olympic Committee and will be available in their online media guide (team book). The contain not only overall Olympic records, but also the bests posted by US athletes at previous Olympics.
More to come.
