Olympic Champs

So China won the most gold medals, and the U.S. won the most medals overall? Who cares - that's like a quarter of the world's population right there. ESPN crowns the per-capita Olympic champions:
  1. Bahamas
  2. Jamaica
  3. Iceland
  4. Slovenia
  5. Australia
The U.S. comes in at #45, China at #68. Last among the 87 countries to medal is India, with one medal per 382,665,299 people.

The Soviet Union would have kicked our butts! China still got more golds but the USSR would beat both US and China at per capita and total medals by a landslide.
