Considering out total population is only 20m. How many other countries of similiar population are in the top 10 for olympics?
sweden. Half the population of Australia, twice the number of olympic medals and far more worlld cup appearances as well.
Winter Olympics don't count. May as well start counting paralympics if it did.
ok winter olympic dont count... and thats because you are poor at it, I guess.
Because the only competition for most events is other scandinanvian countries and the US, i.e countries with major ski fields.
And even then, we beat Finland in the last winter olympics - probably the eqivalent to them beating is at Australian football.
But ok, Sweden beat Australia in the summer olympics as well.
My arse it did. Maybe when it was held in Munich.
