First number is total medals, second is gold medals and so on. This is prior
to 2000.

Australia 283 86 82 115 (pop 19.2 million)
Romania 241 63 78 100 (pop about 19 million and third world)
Bulgaria 185 43 77 65 (pop about 8 million?)
Dutch 184 49 58 77
Denmark 149 35 58 56 (about 5 million)
Norway 120 41 41 38 (pop about 4 million)
NZealand 68 29 12 27 (pop about 3.8 million)
Finland 289 98 79 112  (pop about 6 million?)
Hungary 417 141 124 152 (pop 10 million)

You do the maths. Norway, Hungary and Finland is probably the best. Australia
would need about 350 medals to equal New Zealand per capita and about 600 to
equal Hungary.

Comments?

Thanks for that. LOL.

So what you're saying is that the results are skewed towards countries
with minimal population?

How's Lichtenstein going :)

Well, NZ got into the world cup in 1982. I don't recall seeing Aussie there. LOL.
Btw, NZ has also won about 80% of the rugby games played between Aussie and NZ. I
hope that doesn't sadden you too much.

Hell yeah, they would have beat Italy, Nigeria and Honduras

Very wong, of course. Tiny Liechtenstein has 9 medals and are by miles the
leading Olympic country in this sense. Besides forgetting about a few top
nations in your example you have completely forgotten about the Winter
Olympics.

A medals per millions for some chosen countries woul look about like this
prior to Sydney:

country; summer;  winter; total; pop (million); MpM:
Liechtenstein 0; 9; 9; 0.0322; 279.50
Finland  289; 135; 424; 5.17;  82.01
Norway  116; 239; 355; 4.48; 74.78
Sweden  440.5; 104; 544.5; 8.87;  61.39
Hungary  414; 6; 420; 10.1;  41.58
Switzerland  161; 90; 252; 7.26;  34.71
Austria 75; 146; 221; 8.13; 27.18
Bulgaria   180; 2; 182;  7.80;  23.08
New Zealand  71; 1; 72; 18.85
Bermuda 1; 0; 1; 0.0630; 15.87
Australia  291; 2; 293; 19.2; 15.86
Netherlands  185; 62; 247; 15.9; 15.53
Great Britain  593.5; 24;  617.5;  59.5; 10.38
Canada   209; 79; 288; 31.3; 9.20
Luxembourg 2; 2; 4; 0.437;  9.15
USA  1864.5; 161; 2105.5;  276; 7.63

Disregarding the winter olympics the top 3 would be:

Finland 55.89
Sweden 49.66
Hungary 40.99

So Australia are well behind even tiny Sweden and Hungary even if you don't
take into account the populationa and so are the Netherlands. New Zealand
does also not have a very remarkable record, so stop bragging.

No, I did not. The Winter olympics is biased and corrupt and I decided not to
include it.

Thanks for proving my point! I was not bragging at all, simply proving that
Aussie was not the greatest. Now that two people have proven it, it is now not
beyond disupte.

Back to the dog box for Australia. LOL.

Please don't tell me you really did think I meant that Liechtenstein was the
powerhouse of world sports? Or is irony an unknown concept to you?

Hint: I was trying to prove just what weird results you get from these
medals/capita indexes. China would have to win some 300,000 Olympic medals
to catch up with Liechtensteins 9...
