The ranking in this table is based on information provided by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and is consistent with IOC convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a National Olympic Committee have won (a nation is represented at a Games by the associated National Olympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If NOCs are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically by IOC country code.

Changes in medal standings

Jim Thorpe, the winner of the pentathlon and decathlon events, was subsequently disqualified for professionalism. The athletes ranking 2nd through 4th were upgraded to 1st through 3rd. In 1982, Jim Thorpe was reinstated as a co-winner in both events. In 2022, after gaining approval from the affected national Olympic committees of Norway and Sweden, Thorpe's co-winners were downgraded to joint silver medalists in the respective events.[1]
