There are many countries that have never won a single medal. But if we were to consider the size of a country--which would represent the *possible* medals that could be won--and tally that with the medals actually won by that country, then India is by far the biggest loser in the history of Olympics. The only country more populated than India, China, fares very well at the games. This is because China has espoused a nationally respected culture of sports where athletes are trained from a young age and nurtured until they become winners (and then discarded in their 20s when they're too "old", but that's a separate story). Why India has been unable to make this happen is a good research question.

In checking the teams from each country, I found that Nauru has only one athlete participating in the Beijing Olympics. Brunei and Bhutan each have two athletes.

There may be other countries with only 1-2 athletes total at the summer Olympic games.

The winning country in the Olympics is it determined by most gold or is it by most total medals?

There is no "winning country" in the Olympics. The games celebrate human achievement not national achievement. That being said, the US has won the most medals overall in all of the Olympics, Canada may well have won the most Gold Medals in a Winter Olympics and the US may well have won the most medals of any type in any of the Winter Olympics. I don't know which country has won the most Golds and most medals overall in the Summer Olympics.
