Countries don't win the Olympics. The purpose is to promote the competition between skilled athletes of all nations without boundries. While there is always a nationalistic pride and the 'medal count' is often featured, there is no 'winning country' in the Olympics.

Does the wealth of a country determine how many medals it wins in the Olympics?

No it does not. The amount of medals that a country wins in the Olympics is determined by the number of events that they are entered in and by the capabilities of those competing. However, wealthy countries usually have a larger population to choose from and can afford to send more people to he olympics. Wealth is not a determining factor in the awarding of medals but in a round about way it does influence training, food, equipment to train with, better coaches, etc..
