This is the full table of the medal table of the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. These rankings sort by the number of gold medals earned by a country. The number of silvers is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically. This follows the system used by the IOC, IAAF and BBC. Athletes from 52 countries won medals, leaving 108 countries without a medal. The Soviet Union dominated the medal table, winning the most gold and overall medals.
