Doing the Olympics Medal Tally

Posted in interesting by moneymanagement on August 25, 2008

In my previous post https://moneymanagement.wordpress.com/2008/08/04/the-economics-of-olympics/

I had included a computation by Price Water Cooper house about the expectation of medal tallies

So how near were they to reality?

Though the number one two and three ranking were in the right order, the number of medals won were severely underestimated.

Also underestimated were the winning by U.K. , Ukraine and Cuba

Here is the actual medal tally

China has the most gold though lesser medals in number than USA
