I mean for the entire history of Olympic games, who was the athlete the win the most medals and when that happened?
Each year there are different athlets and players. In olympaics, there isn't only one game but there are several games played. Surely, a circketer can not play hockey and a long jumper can not make a high jump. So, Each one has its own rewards and trophies. New year = new player.
America is the first well-deserved , but Russia and the Soviet Union did not participate in the Olympics : 1896 , 1900, 1920 , 1924 , 1928, 1932, 1936 , 1948 , 1984 , and America was at all the Olympics exepct in 1980
I just found the list of the players who has won the most medals in olympicsHere it is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_multiple_Olympic_gold_medalists
It contains mostly of every country olympic player name.
