Olympic medal tally by per head of population


The Beijing Olympics has been a showcase of the rise of China, and this is reflected in the medal tally. Over the coming decades this tally will only increase as the Chinese better manage their population and sporting institutions.

With a traditional medal tally the powerhouse nations always top the list, but I often wonder about the smaller nations that over-achieve. The Economist have also pondered this and have produced a medal tally from the 2004 Olympics by per head of population.

Note how the Caribbean and Eastern European countries fare.

England Regain the Ashes - How Dreadful


Today England won the fifth test against Australia and regained the Ashes. Australia have held the Ashes since 1989 - that's half of my lifetime! I know it's only a game but how can sport have the power to make you feel so dreadful?

At the end of the day though it is good for the game, as much as it pains me to say it. Interest has been revived here in England, and this famous rivalry over this unique trophy continues.
