The 2012 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXX Olympiad, were a summer multi-sport event held in London, the capital of the United Kingdom, from 27 July to 12 August. A total of 10,768 athletes from 204 nations participated in 302 events in 26 sports across 39 different disciplines.[1][2]

Overall, 86 nations received at least one medal, and 55 of them won at least one gold medal. Athletes from the United States won the most medals overall with 104 and the most gold medals with 47.[a][3] The latter record was the largest gold medal haul for that NOC at a non-US hosted Olympics at the time.[3] Host nation Great Britain[b] won 29 gold medals and 65 overall medals making it the most successful Olympics performance for that nation since the 1908 edition.[5]

Michael Phelps and Missy Franklin won the most gold medals at the games with four each. Phelps also won the greatest number of medals overall winning six in total.[6] Bahrain,[c] Botswana, Cyprus, Gabon, Grenada, Guatemala, and Montenegro all won their first Olympic medals with Bahrain and Grenada winning their nation's first Olympic gold medal.[1] Previously, Montenegrin athletes had competed as nationals of Serbia and Montenegro and of Yugoslavia.[8][d] Taekwondo athlete Milica Mandić from Serbia won the first Olympic gold medal for that nation as an independent nation.[9] However, Serbian athletes had previously won gold medals as nationals of Yugoslavia.[10]

During and after the games, many athletes who were caught doping or tested positive for banned substances were disqualified from competition and had their medals revoked.[11][12] To date, 39 medals have been stripped, with Russia accounting for 16 of those.[13]

The medal table is based on information provided by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and is consistent with IOC convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a nation have won, where nation is an entity represented by a National Olympic Committee (NOC). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals.

In boxing, judo, taekwondo, and wrestling, two bronze medals are awarded in each weight class.[21][22][23][24] Two silver medals (and no bronze) were awarded for second place ties in both the men's 200 metre freestyle swimming and the men's 100 metre butterfly swimming events.[25][26] Two bronze medals were awarded for a third-place tie in the men's keirin cycling race;[27] three bronze medals were awarded for a three-way third-place tie in the men's high jump.[28]

  1. ^ The United States won 46 at the games, and later won a 47th as a result of medal re-allocation
  2. ^ The United Kingdom competes under the name Great Britain to include athletes from the Isle of Man, Channel Islands and British Overseas Territories.[4]
  3. ^ Middle-distance runner Maryam Yusuf Jamal was retroactively awarded a gold medal in 2017 due to doping violations that affected the results of the Women's 1500 metres race. Originally, runner Rashid Ramzi won the Men's 1500 metres race in 2008, but he was stripped of his gold medal the following year after he tested positive for the blood-booster CERA.[7] Furthermore, athlete Ruth Jebet won the Women's 3000 metres steeplechase at the 2016 Summer Olympics prior to Jamal receiving the reallocated gold medal the following year.[7]
  4. ^ During the 1992 Summer Olympics, Montenegrin athletes competed as Independent Olympic Athletes.[8]
