Germany: Germany has participated in the Summer Olympics for 22 times. The country has hosted Summer Olympic Games twice in 1936 and in 1972. In 1948 London Olympic Games, Germany was not invited to participate in the Olympics. Germany, which divided into two countries in 1949 as East and West Germany, participated in the three Olympics 1956, 1960 and 1964, as a United Team of Germany (EUA). After 1990 both East and West Germany merged, represented by a single team in the Olympics. In the 22 times Germany has participated in the Summer Olympics, it won 851 medals including 247 Gold, 284 Silver and 320 Bronze. East Germany, who participated in five Olympics won 409 medals including 153 Gold, 129 Silver and 127 Bronze medals.
