Slovenia Temp. Leads Medal Tally

Wed Aug 25, 2004 1:51 am

According to the ABS, Slovenia has knocked off Australia in leading the medal tally in Athens on 10 day of competition -- a position we had held since day 1.

The alternative medal tally is updated daily at:

After day 10, Slovenia had 1 medal for every 495,000 people. Australia 1 for every 576,000. USA 1 for every 4,500,000. China 1 for every 26,257,000. And India is an astounding 1 medal for every 1,080,921,000.

I guess this could tie in with the thread as to why India is so crap at the Olympics  Smile

But India leads the world in the "Run up and down a hill and sing in a wet saree" biathlon for women. I bet that no Slovenian woman could do that !
