    Who is the most decorated Olympian of all time? Who has made the most Olympic appearances? All your questions answered.

    After a year-long delay, the Tokyo Olympics showcased the world’s best athletes putting on a spectacle - with several records falling and personal bests set.

    As another edition of the Summer Games came to an end, let’s have a look at some Olympic records.

    Most number of Olympic medals won

    Legendary former American swimmer Michael Phelps is the most successful male Olympian of all time with 28 Olympic medals. Incredibly, 23 of them are gold medals, which is also the record for most Olympic golds won by a male athlete.

    Among the women, former Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, with 18 Olympic medals, is the most successful female Olympian. Nine of those were gold, a record for most golds by a female athlete at the Olympics.

    Among countries, the United States of America leads the way, having won 2,522 Olympic medals over the years, 1,022 of which were gold - also the most won by a single nation.

    Most gold medals won in a single Olympics

    Michael Phelps’s record of eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics - he won gold in every event he took part in - stands as the record for most Olympic golds won in a single edition of the Summer Games.

    German swimmer Kristin Otto leads the way among the women, having won six gold medals at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

    The USA lead the way once again among nations, with American athletes having won a record 83 gold medals at the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles.

    Most consecutive Olympic gold medals in same event

    Americans Carl Lewis (long jump), Alfred Oerter (discus throw) and Denmark’s Paul Elvstrom (sailing) have all won gold medals in four consecutive Olympic Games and are tied for the top spot among male athletes.

    Japanese wrestler Kaori Icho, with four consecutive golds, leads the way among female athletes.

    In team events, Hungarian fencer Aladar Gerevich has won six consecutive Olympic golds as part of the male sabre team while American basketball player Lisa Leslie has been part of four consecutive Olympic gold-winning women’s teams.

    Youngest Olympic medallist

    Denmark’s Inge Sorensen is the youngest female athlete to win an individual Olympic medal. Sorensen won bronze in the 200m breaststroke at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, when she was 12 years and 24 days old.

    Her compatriot Nils Skoglund became the youngest male athlete to win an individual Olympic medal when he took silver in the plain high diving event at the 1920 Antwerp Olympics. He was 14 years and 11 days old.

    In team events, Greek gymnast Dimitrios Loundras is the youngest male to win an Olympic medal as he was part of the bronze-winning parallel bars team at the 1896 Olympics. He was 10 years and 218 days old.

    Italian Luigina Giavotti, at 11 years and 302 days, is the youngest female member of a team to win an Olympic medal. She won silver as part of the women’s gymnastics team at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics.

    Youngest Olympic gold-medallists

    USA’s Marjorie Gestring is the youngest individual Olympic champion. She won the 3m springboard event at the 1936 Berlin Olympics when she was aged 13 years and 268 days.

    Japanese swimmer Kusuo Kitamura, at 14 years and 309 days, is the youngest individual male Olympic champion, having won the 1500m freestyle gold at the 1932 Los Angeles Games.

    Eliza Pollock of the USA is the oldest female athlete to win Olympic gold. She was 63 years and 331 days old when she won the archery competition at the 1904 Olympics.

    Most appearances at the Olympics

    Having participated in 10 Olympic Games from 1972 to 2012, Canadian equestrian rider Ian Millar is the man with the most Olympic appearances to date. He won one Olympic silver medal.

    Michael Fred Phelps II[5] (born June 30, 1985)[6] is an American former competitive swimmer. He is the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time[7] with a total of 28 medals.[8] Phelps also holds the all-time records for Olympic gold medals (23),[9] Olympic gold medals in individual events (13), and Olympic medals in individual events (16).[10] When Phelps won eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Games, he broke fellow American swimmer Mark Spitz's 1972 record of seven first-place finishes at any single Olympic Games. At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Phelps already tied the record of eight medals of any color at a single Games by winning six gold and two bronze medals. At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Phelps won four gold and two silver medals, and at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, he won five gold medals and one silver. This made him the most successful athlete of the Games for the fourth Olympics in a row.[11][12]

    The Most Decorated Olympians of All Time and Their Medal Counts

    At the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, many decorated athletes will be returning for their second or third Olympics looking to add to their medal haul. Phenoms like swimmer Katie Ledecky and gymnast Simone Biles return after collecting five medals each at the 2016 Rio Games but still have an uphill climb to reach the echelon of athletes with the most Olympic medals.

    The Most Decorated Olympians of All Time and Their Medal Counts

    t the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, many decorated athletes will be returning for their second or third Olympics looking to add to their medal haul. Phenoms like swimmer Katie Ledecky and gymnast Simone Biles return after collecting five medals each at the 2016 Rio Games but still have an uphill climb to reach the echelon of athletes with the most Olympic medals.

    The most decorated Olympic athletes of all time tend to compete in disciplines with multiple events, including individual and team opportunities to win medals — like swimming, gymnastics and track and field.

    Let’s take a look at which athletes have brought home the most medals in Olympic history.

    Who has won the most Olympic medals of all time?

    The Olympian with the most medals of all time is Michael Phelps. The swimming superstar won 28 medals between 2004 and 2016, ten more than the previous record of 18.

    Olympic Medals Adjusted Per Athlete

    Since the 1896 games in Athens, the number of countries and athletes participating in the Olympics has ballooned in size lowering the number of medals per athlete for each country.

    Phelps started slow at his first Olympics in 2000 at the age of 15, finishing fifth in his only event, the 200m butterfly. Four years later in Athens, he entered eight events and came away with medals in every single one, then one-upped himself at the 2008 Beijing Olympics by finishing first in all eight events.

    Phelps broke Larisa Latynina’s record of 18 medals during the 2012 London Olympics. He added six more during the 2016 Rio Olympics to ensure that his record would be virtually unbreakable.

    Latynina’s record had stood since the 1964 Tokyo Games. A gymnast from the Soviet Union, she collected her 18 medals over three Olympic Games, beginning in Melbourne in 1956. While leading the Soviet Union to three straight golds in the team competition, she also won the individual all-around twice and earned at least two individual medals in each of the four apparatuses.

    Many other gymnasts also appear on the list of most decorated Olympians: Nikolai Andrianov (Soviet Union, 15 medals); Boris Shakhlin (Soviet Union, 13 medals); Ono Takashi (Japan, 13); Kato Sawao (Japan, 12); and Aleksei Nemov (Russia, 12). An Italian fencer Edoardo Mangiarotti also has 13 Olympic medals from five separate Olympics between 1936 and 1960.

    The other owners of 12 medals apiece include Finnish runner Paavo Nurmi; Birgitt Fischer, who competed in canoe sprint for East Germany and later Germany; and four American swimmers, Jenny Thompson, Ryan Lochte, Dara Torres and Natalie Coughlin.

    Who has the most Olympic gold medals of all time?

    Unsurprisingly, Phelps also demolished the previous record for Olympic gold medals won by a single person. Of his 28 medals, a whopping 23 were gold. No one else has ever won more than nine. Phelps broke the record when he won his second event, the 100m butterfly, at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Phelps also owns the record for most gold medals won in a single Olympics: eight in Beijing.

    Several athletes are tied for second with nine gold medals, including Latynina and Nurmi.

    Two Americans also have nine gold medals to their names. Mark Spitz — the best American swimmer in history before Phelps came along — racked up nine golds in only two Olympic Games, 1968 and 1972. Carl Lewis, the back-to-back champion of the 100m in 1984 and 1988, also competed in the 4×100 relay, the 200m and the long jump, which helped him reach nine golds.

    Tied for third all time with eight gold medals are Fischer, Thompson, Sawao, American swimmer Matt Biondi, American track and field athlete Ray Ewry and Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.

    Who has won the most Olympic medals in a single Games?

    Unlike the overall medal record, Phelps has to share this one with gymnast Aleksandr Dityatin. Phelps’ eight medals each in 2004 and 2008 matched Dityatin’s record from the 1980 Moscow Games.
