This includes Gold, Silver and Bronze winners for both Summer and Winter Games. You'll also notice that it includes East Germany and the Soviet Union which no longer exist. For comparison, Russia has 327 medals, West Germany has 243 medals and the United Team of Germany (which is different than Germany) has 137. These are also approximate totals since records of the games before 1896 are rough at best.
