Bulgarian athletes have won a total of 223 medals, with wrestling and weightlifting as the top medal-producing sports. After the fall of the communist regime in 1989-1990, in Bulgaria's turbulent transition to free-market democracy, top-notch state support for Bulgarian Olympians disintegrated. Diminishing and marginalized medal returns were evident in the 2012 London Olympics, where Bulgaria, a former top-10 Olympic power in the late 1980s, fell out of its original high stature. Bulgaria's all-time highest performance came in the 1980 Summer Olympics where they achieved bronze medals as the 3rd ranked team in the overall medal count. In the 1988 Summer Olympics Bulgaria ranked 7th, but achieved the nations most amount of medals in history. Their highest Winter Olympic result came in 1998 where they ranked 15th.
