1 - Artistic Swimming - Russia (Team)

2 - Table Tennis - China (men's team)

3 - Diving - Men's 10m Platform - Cao Yuan and Chen Aisen

4 - Water Polo - United States Women

5 - Weightlifting  - Men's +109kg -  Lasha Talakhadze

 

Not necessarily the safest gold medallists.

 

Also China in weightlifting, especially women seem safe. Last mention, USA women's all-around team in artistic gymnastics.

Individual events only and max. 1 per sport, otherwise it would be too repetitive:

 

1- Swimming, men's 100m breaststroke, Adam Peaty

2- Artistic gymnastics, women's all around, Simone Biles

3- Weightlifting, men's +109kg, Lasha Talakhadze

4- Karate, men's kata, Ryo Kiyuna

5- Athletics, Women's triple jump, Yulimar Rojas

Making it better doesn't mean that they can take the gold medal in a sport with judges.
