Sažetak
The Olympic Games are a competition held every four years. Pierre de Coubertin had a major role in revitalizing the Olympic Games, and he considered them to be a tool for celebrating and rewarding sports excellence. The winners, in all disciplines and all sports that represent the Olympic Games, both individual and team, are awarded with medals: a gold medal (actually gold-plated silver) for the first place, a silver medal for the second place, and a bronze medal for the third place. This way of awarding medals was introduced at the Olympics in London, in 1908. According to the rules set by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the members, National Olympic Committees (NOC), are ranked according to the number of gold medals won. The aim of this study is to systematise the results from the last four Summer Olympic Games and examine the differences between the first 40 European and non-European countries ranked by the number of gold, silver and bronze medals won on the Olympic Games in Rio 2016, London 2012, Beijing 2008 and Athens 2004. In this research, four Olympic Games were observed: Rio 2016, London 2012, Beijing 2008 and Athens 2004, as well as scores according to the number of medals won (gold, silver, and bronze) by the first 40 ranked countries. The results of this research showed that there are no statistically significant differences between the first 40 European and non- European countries ranked at the Olympics 2016, 2012, 2008 and 2004, considering the number of gold, silver and bronze medals won.
