Taking a look at the current medals table, a few countries are performing noticeably poorly. Key: G/S/B - Total 10th - Russia: 3/12/8 - 23 Are Russia looking at their worst Olympic games performance in modern times? 19th - Australia: 1/9/4 - 14 The Aussies being outperformed by New Zealand who sit in 12th place. 21st - Brazil 1/1/4 - 6 With a population of over 200million, Brazil should have more than 1 gold at this point. 35th - India 0/1/1 - 2 with such a large population, 1 silver and 1 bronze is a major under performance. 46th - Greece 0/0/1 - 1 The birthplace of the Olympics has only picked up 1 bronze so far. Stats correct as of 04/08/2012
I didn't find one of these threads here, so I thought I'd make one. I found a video on youtube once which showed the host city announcements for the olympics from 1976-2020 but now its gone! There are a few one websites. I'll post the ones I find.
