 11904 St Louis Olympics ... Frank Gailey was born in Australia and in 1906 became a naturalized American citizen. The Australian Olympic Committee credits Australia for his 1904 medals since Gailey was still an Australian at the time he competed. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) disagrees.

 21908 London Olympics & 1912 Stockhold Olympics ... Australia competed as Australasia for these two Games. Australiasia was a combined team from Australia and New Zealand.
