List of famous Olympic bronze medal winners from every event, with photos of the athletes when available. These historic Olympic bronze medal winners are listed by popularity, so the most historic Olympians are at the top of the list. Olympic medalists who have won the bronze medal are among an elite group, as many athletes who train their entire lives will never even qualify for the Olympics. The famous Olympic competitors on this list may have either competed in the Summer Olympics or Winter Olympics, but what they all have in common is that they each took home a bronze medal.

List ranges from LeBron James to Dwyane Wade and more.

If you're trying to answer the questions, "Which Olympians have won a bronze medal?" and "How many people have won an Olympic bronze medal?" then this list has you covered.

This list includes notable bronze medal winners from almost every Olympics. They didn't all get their own Wheaties boxes, but every person who has ever won a bronze medal is impressive enough to be included in this list.
