According to Wikipedia, Bolivia won the women's doubles title at the 2018 Racquetball World Championships. This is probably Bolivia's first ever gold medal in any sport at the world championships.

I think so...moreover, they never won an Olympic medal at all in their entire history (but at the 2010 YOG they won the men's Football Gold)...

Which is why in 2015 I put them in 2nd place in a ranking of worst nations in the Olympic history :p (thanks to a lot of statistics from sports-reference.com)

Use Google Translate and you'll see I don't count the architecture medal, much like the IOC :p 

 

Also one might see India for example as piss-poor in terms of sports, seeing as they have literally more than a billion people yet barely perform better than most much smaller countries, but I specifically made the choice only for countries without official medals :p

Unofficial medal is still better than no medal. :d

What's the main criteria for sports, their federation should be part of SportAccord or whatever it's called nowadays?

I think that we can count the SportAccord's federation, do you have other ideas? :)

Nope, that's exactly my idea, to still have basically every semi-serious sport, but avoid sports that have no international federation with more than 1-2 countries :p
