Supplementary notes

Countries are ranked by the number of gold medals won, then silver, then bronze. Where countries have the same number of respective medals they have been displayed alphabetically.

Data shown includes all re-distributed medals, as of May 2020.

This data was collected using the official site, as well as a spreadsheet from the Guardian that includes data from 1896-2008 (available here), 2012 and 2016 data was compared with that from Encyclopaedia Britannica, and several news outlets were used to update the table when medals were reassigned (i.e. for doping offenses).
