  1. Yes, that's true and is almost impossible to account for in statistics. I suppose ultimately there is no way to come up with a fool proof way of deciding this as there'll always be another angle to consider. The non-G20 category is interesting and one I didn't consider before. Again though there are other variables that come into this to skew the data, but it's a good way of knocking out a few obvious outliers.
  2. This was done to eliminate USSR, as they would skew results, but I do see what you're saying. Stats can be used to prove anything as a few commenters have already mentioned. I suppose this is just a fun piece to be taken at face value. 100% Usain Bolt has won this for Jamaica, although their track exploits do really have to be admired. It would be great if there was a formula or some way of actually working out which nations were performing the best relative to size. This kind of thing would be way beyond me from a mathematics / statistics point of vi
  3. I've always wondered how well countries actually perform at Olympic games. The medal tables will tell you one story - always USA, China, Russia etc. However, these countries have huge advantages over some others. Namely money and population size. This research shows which countries out perform their status best - and I found it really interesting. The two variables looked at are: Gold medals per million people Gold medals per trillion dollars of national GDP You can see the full research here and see where your country ranked on the table
  4. That image of Lacazette on one knee in front of the players is such a powerful one. It certainly shows he was fired up the racism stuff - and he performance on the pitch showed that. Fair play to Arsenal for a great result.
  5. 🇮🇹 🇧🇷 🇫🇷 Would be my top three. All of them evoke such passion!
