Greatest Sporting nation on Earth

But then, I am biased…

Australia have been fourth on the overall medal tally at the last 2 Olympics, behind USA, China and Russia. But we don’t have anywhere near the population of these countries.

We are currently sitting 5th in Beijing.

According to the All Time Medal tally, we are 11th. But we weren’t even a nation at the first 2 modern Olympics! (1896 and 1900)

I’d say its definitive. Per capita, we rock!

What does greatest mean? Best? Or most passionate? It could mean a few things. Love the per capita thing – we always win – hands down! So yes, I think you could right!

I didn’t think too hard about definitions… I think best, most passionate, most prolific, etc. All of the above and more!
