It seems that we'd be tenth in the medal table right now...

Not bad:)

The vital statistics page

I found this while looking to see how the sexes split in the medals table.

Olympic Breakfast just quoted Bingalau's percentage of population split as:

  1. China, 1 gold per 16 million
  2. USA, 1 gold per 3.5 million
  3. GB, 1 gold per 1.1 million

But the most successful country is Grenada with 1 gold per 100,000(ish).

The men Vs women split is 64/36%. I was actually expecting that that to be nearer 50/50.
