Famous Olympic Silver Medal Winners

Updated June 8, 2017 5.7k views2.2k items

List of famous Olympic silver medal winners from every event, with photos of the athletes when available. These historic Olympic silver medal winners are listed by popularity, so the most historic Olympians are at the top of the list. Olympic medalists who have won the silver 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 silver medal.

List features athletes like Ryan Lochte, Nastia Liukin and more!

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

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