All-Time Olympic Games Medal Tally (Summer Olympics)

Here is a sorted list of all countries and medal counts based on results of all Summer Olympic Games (includes results of the 2021 Tokyo Games). There is also a version of this list with the countries listed in alphabetical order. The USA are clearly the most successful country in terms of the number of medals won at the Olympics.

Note: This list will not stay up to date, as the number of medal winners can change due to athletes retrospectively being banned and medals taken off them after doping violations.

The first thing you will notice is that some countries have attended more Olympic Games, so they have had more opportunity to win medals. Therefore, we have created a list which determines the number of medals per Olympic Games attended. You can see analysis of this data to get the top ranked countries based on medals won and also medals won per Olympiad.
