Summer Olympic Games / All-time Medal Table by Country

ATHENS 1896 - RIO 2016

There is no official medal tables in the Olympic Games. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) does not recognise a global ranking per country. Thus, precise totals by nation are difficult to determine because until 1908 athletes entered the Olympics as individuals rather than as selected members of a national team. In addition, athletes from different nations sometimes joined forces in team sports. Depending on how to account these medals, different tables reach different totals. We display here the table we consider the most accurate, in which medals won as part of mixed teams are counted aside (ZZX) and not included in the totals of each country. This medal table by country reflects all-time Summer Games medal standings, from Athens 1896 to Rio de Janeiro 2016 (both included). It is based on the number of medals won, with gold medals taking priority over silver and bronze. A team victory counts as one medal. The 1906 Intercalated Games are NOT included, as they are not recognized by the IOC. NOC abbreviations in small letters are national entities that no longer exist.

*Bohemia Historical region of central Europe and former kingdom, forming roughly the westernmost two-thirds of what is now the Czech Republic. With the collapse of that empire after World War I and the creation of Czechoslovakia in 1918, Bohemia became a province of the new republic. Bohemia became part of the independent Czech Republic as of January 1, 1993.
*Chinese Taipei includes medals won as Taiwan (TAI, 1960-1964) and the Republic of China (ROC, 1968-1972) before the Chinese Taipei name was adopted in 1984.
*Independent Olympic Athletes. Athletes from Kuwait competed under this denomination at the 2016 Games (1 G / 0 S / 1 B).
*Independent Olympic Participants. Yugoslav athletes from Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia competed under this denomination at the 1992 Games (0 G / 1 S / 2 B).
*Unified Team (1992 EUN). After the breakup of the Soviet Union, the ensuing independent states competed together in 1992 (except for the Baltic republics of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania).

*Yugoslavia participated at the Olympic Games from 1920 to 1988, first as Kingdom of Yugoslavia and as Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia since 1948.
