  1. I've always wondered how well countries actually perform at Olympic games. The medal tables will tell you one story - always USA, China, Russia etc. However, these countries have huge advantages over some others. Namely money and population size. This research shows which countries out perform their status best - and I found it really interesting. The two variables looked at are: Gold medals per million people Gold medals per trillion dollars of national GDP You can see the full research here and see where your country ranked on the table - https://bitedge.com/blog/which-country-really-wins-the-olympics/ Top performing nations: Jamaica Cuba North Korea Poorly performing nations: India China USA It's good to see a table which gives weighting to the smaller nations, although the data has only been collected since 1996 to eliminate USSR and give consistent results. Are there any nations in there that surprised you? And is this research valid or are there flaws? Can we really call Jamaica the greatest Olympic nation in the world?
  2. 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
