Medal table


By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a nation have won (in this context, a "nation" is an entity represented by a National Olympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If nations are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.

In the Boys' combined event in alpine skiing, two gold medals were awarded for a first place tie. No silver medal was awarded for the event.[1] In the Boys' monobob on bobsleigh,also two gold medals were awarded for a first place tie,and no silver medal was awarded.[2]
