The 1900 Summer Olympics were held in Paris, France, from May 14 to October 28, 1900, as part of the 1900 World's Fair. A total of 997 athletes representing 24 nations participated in 85 events in 19 sports at these games. Women competed in the Olympics for the first time during the 1900 games. 21 of the 24 participating nations earned medals, in addition to 12 medals won by teams made up of athletes from multiple nations. The host nation of France dominated the medal count, winning the most gold (26), silver (41), and bronze (34) medals, and therefore winning the most medals overall (101).
In the early Olympic Games, several team events were contested by athletes from multiple nations. Retroactively, the IOC created the designation Mixed team (with the country code ZZX) to refer to these group of athletes. During the 1900 games, athletes participating in mixed teams won medals in athletics, polo, rowing, sailing, tennis, and tug of war. Some athletes won medals both individually and as part of a mixed team, so these medals are tabulated under different nations in the official counts.
Gold medals were not given at the 1900 Games; a silver medal was given for a first place and a bronze medal was given for second. The International Olympic Committee has retroactively assigned gold, silver, and bronze medals to competitors who earned first, second, and third-place finishes respectively in order to bring early Olympics in line with current awards.
This is the full table of the medal count of the 1900 Summer Olympics, based on the medal count of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). These rankings sort by the number of gold medals earned by a country. The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically. This follows the system used by the IOC.
