2000 Summer Olympics medal table

The 2000 Summer Olympics medal table is a list of National Olympic Committees ranked by the number of medals won during the 2000 Summer Olympics, held in Sydney, Australia, from September 15 to October 1, 2000. A total of 10,651 athletes from 199 nations (with four individual athletes from East Timor) competed in 300 events in 28 sports.

Athletes from 80 countries won at least one medal, leaving 119 countries without a medal. The United States won the most medals overall with 91, as well as the most gold (35) medals. Host nation Australia finished the Games with 58 medals overall (16 gold, 25 silver, and 17 bronze). Colombia won a gold medal for the first time in its Olympic history, while Vietnam, Barbados, and Kyrzygstan won their first ever Olympic medals, a silver in taekwondo, a bronze in athletics, and a bronze in judo, respectively.

Changes in medal standings

Since the closing of these Games, the medal standings suffered changes following a doping scandal involving five-time Olympic medal winner Marion Jones in athletics. The American sprinter was stripped of her three gold and two bronze medals, by the International Olympic Committee, after confessing, on October 5, 2007, she had taken the anabolic steroid tetrahydrogestrinone before competing in Sydney. Along with the other four medals, the women's 100 metres gold medal has not yet been reallocated, because the presumed recipient, Ekaterini Thanou of Greece, was given a two-year ban for missing a drug test just before the 2004 Summer Olympics, in Athens.

On August 2, 2008, the International Olympic Committee stripped the gold medal from the U.S. men's 4x400-metre relay team after Antonio Pettigrew admitted to taking EPO and human growth hormone.

Medal table

The ranking in this table is based on information provided by the International Olympic Committee.

The ranking sorts by the number of gold medals earned by a country—in this context, 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, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.
