Who is the greatest polo player of all time based on Olympic Games performances? We have used a weighted total medal count of each polo player from all modern Olympic Games to rank their overall performance.
No polo player has won more than two medals, but four riders, all from Great Britain, won two medals each. The best all-time performing polo player at the Olympic Games is British rider John Wodehouse who won a silver in 1908 and gold in 1920.
