The 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games (French: Les IIIe Jeux olympiques de la jeunesse d'hiver; German: Olympische Jugend-Winterspiele 2020; Italian: III Giochi olimpici giovanili invernali; Romansh: Gieus olimpics da giuvenils d'enviern 2020), officially known as the III Winter Youth Olympic Games and commonly known as Lausanne 2020, was the third edition of the Winter Youth Olympics; a major international multi-sport event and cultural festival for teenagers was held in Lausanne, Switzerland, the home of the International Olympic Committee, between 9 and 22 January 2020.

Medal table

By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a nation have won (in this context, a "nation" is an entity represented by a National Olympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If nations are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.

In the Boys' combined event in alpine skiing, two gold medals were awarded for a first place tie. No silver medal was awarded for the event. In the Boys' monobob on bobsleigh,also two gold medals were awarded for a first place tie,and no silver medal was awarded.
