The page lists individuals who have won three or more gold medals at the Olympics.

List of most Olympic gold medals over career[edit]

This is a partial list of multiple Olympic gold medalists, listing people who have won three or more Olympic gold medals. Medals won in the 1906 Intercalated Games are not included. It includes top-three placings in 1896 and 1900, before medals were awarded for top-three placings. For simplicity, when an athlete has won medals for more than one nation, only the last nation he or she represented is mentioned here. The Olympics listed for each athlete only include games in which they won medals. See the particular article on the athlete for more details on when and for what nation an athlete competed.

More medals are available in some events than others, and the number of events in which medals are available overall have changed over time.

Timeline[edit]

This is a progressive list of Olympians that have held the record for most titles won. It includes titles won in 1896 and 1900, before gold medals were awarded for first place. All record-holders have competed at Summer Games rather than Winter Games.
