London 1948 Olympics Medals Table

Popularly known as the Games of the XIV Olympiad, the 1948 London Olympics took place from 29 July to 14 August, 1948. As the first Olympic Games that took place in 12 years, the 1948 London Olympics witnessed the participating countries bringing in their own food due to shortages in the United Kingdom. A whopping 59 nations participated in these Olympics. Around 4,104 athletes, 3,714 men and 385 women took part in 19 different sports.

Unlike other participating nations, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan hadn't formed their NOC (National Olympic Committee) and were hence not invited to the 1948 London Olympics. On the medals front, United States of America finished up on the first position by earning 38 gold, 27 silver and 19 bronze medals. Following the US, Sweden and France took the second and third positions respectively. While Sweden won 16 gold, 11 silver and 17 bronze medals, France took home 10 gold, six silver and 13 bronze medals. Countries, including Ceylon, Puerto Rico, Burma, Lebanon and Syria were the first-time participants at the 1948 London Summer Games. The medals given away at these Games were the standard Trionfo designs that were used for the medals awarded during the Olympic Games that took place between 1928 and 1968.
