Has there been any male or female athlete who won medals in multiple disciplines during the same Olympics game? If so, list the athlete's name, as well as the year, and the disciplines of medal winning. As bonus, also list any other discipline if the athlete also participated in that year, but didn't win a medal for.

To clarify, I consider sport programs to be of different discipline if listed so here for each of summer and winter games.

  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… check this list

  • That only partially answers my question. If an athlete has done this in multiple Olympics games, it wouldn't be easy to tell from that list. Also the winter and summer Olympics used to get hosted on the same year until 1992 which makes it tough to tell if an anyone in that list with only one year entry qualifies for this answer in a quick look.

1 Answer 1


As of yesterday 20-Feb-2018: Jorien ter Mors (NED) won gold at 1000m speed skating (14-Feb-2018) and bronze at team relay short track skating (20-Feb-2018) at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea. Fun fact: NED was in the B-final and managed a new world and olympic record. After two penalties in the A-final they were bumped up to third place.

And I found a link to Frank Kugler winning a medal in 3 different sports in the 1904 Olympics.

Of course there's als Carl Lewis 100m sprint and long jump (I remember him, must be others as well) but according to the table in the opening question all Athletics is considered one sport.

Edit 2018-02-26: And I was trying to remember Esther Ledecka... who won gold in both alpine skiing and snowboard in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
