You can see the full list in this visualization, but you can also easily adapt it to see the top medalists of single other Olympic games. Just go to "options" and choose the games you are interested in!

The visualization shows how the number of countries who participate in Olympics has been changing over the history of the Olympic games. The number is steadily growing, with the exception of 1980s when Western block and Eastern blocked countries boycotted games in USA and Soviet Union.
