Olympic Medal Tables

The race for the leading countries on the Olympic Games medal tally has become more hotly contested than the individual sporting medals, as countries attempt to use it to bolster national pride or justify huge spending on sports. Note, however, that the International Olympic Committee does not officially recognize national medal totals. We do.

We have listed the top 10 (or more) medal tally nations from every Summer Olympic Games:
1896, 1900, 1904, 1906, 1908, 1912, 1920, 1924, 1928, 1932, 1936, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972, 1976, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020.
