Countries With The Most Summer Olympic Medals

The United States of America leads the all-time Summer Olympics medals table with 2,520 medals won. The 1904 Olympic Games were held in St. Louis, Missouri and ended up having the host nation scooping 239 of the available 280 medals. This anomalous feat was accomplished because many countries could not send athletes on the Trans-Atlantic trip for the Summer Games.
