*Although Irving Jaffee is generally given credit for winning the 10,000-meter speed skating race in 1928, the race was cancelled due to thawing ice before it was finished. The IOC considers the race unofficial and did not award medals.

#In 1966, the silver medalists in the pairs figure skating competition Marika Kilius and Hans-Jurgen Baumler of Germany were stripped of their medals following allegations that they had signed a professional contract before the start of the 1964 Olympic Winter Games. The fourth place USA team of Vivian and Ronald Joseph was therefore, moved to third place, and the third place Canadian team was moved to second. In 1987, the German couple was officially rehabilitated by the IOC, and in an unusual decision all of the original results were restored. The U.S. team that held third place for more than 20 years was moved back to fourth place, and the USOC no longer counts their bronze medal.
