Winter Olympics All-Time Medals Count
The Winter Olympics are held every four years, with Norway dominating the all-time Winter Olympics medal count ahead of much bigger nations like United States, Germany, Soviet Union et al.
The first Winter Olympics started in 1924. It was traditionally held in the same year as the Summer Olympics until 1992, before the tournaments were placed on separate four-year cycles in alternating even-numbered years. The next Winter Olympic Games after 1992 were held in 1994.
As previously mentioned, Norway is the most successful nation of all time at the Winter Olympic Games, having amassed a total of 368 medals since the first Winter Olympics in 1924 – this tally includes 132 gold medals, 125 silver and 111 bronze.
This total is especially impressive considering the Scandinavian country has a population of just over five million inhabitants. Their Scandinavian neighbours are also in the top medal count lists with Sweden 7th and Finland 11th.
15 of the top 20 medal count nations are in Europe – with United States and Canada the outsiders in the top five, and South Korea, Japan and China making up the outsiders but still outside the top 14.
The following list has been updated for the 2022 Winter Olympics that took place in China.
