A total of 10,768 athletes from 204 nations participated in 302 events in 26 sports across 39 different disciplines.[1][2]

Overall, 86 nations received at least one medal, and 55 of them won at least one gold medal. Athletes from the United States won the most medals overall with 104 and the most gold medals with 46.[3] The latter record was the largest gold medal haul for that NOC at a non-US hosted Olympics at the time.[3] Host nation Great Britain[a] won 29 gold medals and 65 overall medals making it the most successful Olympics performance for that nation since the 1908 edition.[5]
