Ken Belson, writing for the New York Times:
What is perhaps more compelling are the nations that carry their weight in medals, like Slovenia. The Slovenes have won four medals: gold in judo, silver in track and field and bronze in rowing and shooting. With a population of 2.06 million people, that works out to one medal per 514,385 residents, the best per-capita medal rate among the 59 countries that have won at least one medal through Sunday.
I was actually thinking last night, why haven’t I heard much about India in the Olympics? Turns out they have won a few medals, but they have the lowest number per capita of any country that’s been on the podium.
