Australians - The Greatest Olympians per Capita

At the moment the Chinese are running away with a huge swag of Gold Medals but Australia is currently do very well on a per capita basis .
Of the countries with the most medals here is the breakdown.

Australia - 1 Gold Medal per every 2.2 million people
UK- 1 Gold Medal per every 3.6 million people
Korea - 1 Gold Medal per every 4.35 million people
Germany - 1 Gold Medal per every 9.1 million people
USA - 1 Gold Medal per every 15.8 million people (double that if Phelps retires)
Canada - 1 Gold Medal per every 16.95 million people
China - 1 Gold Medal per every 37 million people

So now you see why the world gets more bang for their buck out of Aussies!

I have worked out a new medal tally that gives us a minor chance of beating the USA :)

China - 35 - 13 - 13
USA - 11 - 21 - 25
Great Britain - 11 - 6 - 8
Australia - 9 - 10 - 12
Germany - 9 - 6 - 7
South Korea - 8 - 9 - 5
Japan - 8 - 5 - 7
Phelps - 8 - 0 - 0

Jamaica are beating us though with 1 Gold for every 1.39 million. And they still have Usain Bolt still to run in the 200m.

Australia just won its 10th Gold and we are now 1 Gold per 2.05 million people.
At this rate we'll all have a gold medal!

I think you guys should work out the size of our team per capita, we have a huge team for our puny population, might explain something. None the less, good to see us with a few medals.

I believe that the UK team includes Scotland, Wales, Ireland whereas they are separate in the Commonwealth games. If this is correct , that would alter the figures somewhat.
