Olympic Medals by Country 2022

There is a global competition known as the Olympic Games, which brings together competitors from all over the globe to compete for their nations’ prestige. The Olympics are the premier international sporting event, with a new host city hosting the games each time they are held.




Even if a city can host numerous Olympic events, it may not be able to host all of them, as is the case with Los Angeles (California, United States).

The two sections of the Olympics are split according to the seasons. Track and field, swimming, gymnastics, & basketball are just a few of the many outdoor sports included in the Summer Olympics.

In contrast, cold-weather sports like bobsledding, ice skating, and skiing emphasize the Winter Olympics. Because both events take place every four years, their calendars are now two years apart.

This means that the next three years of the Olympic calendar will be devoted to the Summer Games, with the Winter Games following three years later, from the years 2020 to 2032.

The 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo has been postponed until July/August of 2021 because of the worldwide epidemic of COVID-19.

For athletes with disabilities, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is a partner of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which hosts the Paralympic Games.




The cooperation allows the Paralympics to be held in the same host city as the Olympics, even though they are nominally independent organizations.

Athletes ages 15 to 18 compete in the IOC’s Summer and Winter Youth Olympics. It follows a two-lane/four-year calendar identical to the main games, but with various host cities and venues, like the Youth Olympic Games.

In addition, numerous regional competitions, such as the Pan American Games and the Asian Games, are linked with the Olympics.

Since the modern Olympics started in 1896, overall medal numbers may be a bit of a stumbling block. As a result of the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia was established as an independent state.

If any of the younger nations were given credit for the Soviet Union’s medals, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had to make that decision.

Several athletes have participated in the Olympic Games as individuals because of their political views or sanctions against the country hosting the games.




For the record, the IOC has withdrawn an athlete’s medal and given it to someone else on a few occasions. Here are the top 10 Summer & Winter Olympic medal winners in 2021, in order.

List of Olympic Medal Winners:

Most summer Olympic medals have been won by the United States (2656), the Soviet Union (1010), the United Kingdom (916), France (750), Germany (652), China (634), Italy (618), and the nations of Australia (547) and Hungary (511) (503).
