This is the full table of the medal table of the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. These rankings sort by the number of gold medals earned by a country. The number of silvers is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze. 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, IAAF and BBC. Athletes from 44 countries have won at least one medal, leaving 78 countries without a medal.
