Medal count by country in the Women's 400m at the Summer Olympics 1964-2016

The Women's 400 meter sprint event has been included in the Summer Olympics since 1964. Unlike the men's event, this one has not been dominated by the United States; instead, French athletes have won it the most times with three gold medals, although East Germany, Britain and the US have won six total medals each. Current Olympic Record Holder Marie-José Pérec of France is the event's most successful athlete, with two golds to her name. No athlete has ever been stripped of a medal won in this event.
