multisport International event like Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games
etc I find the final medal tally listing a bit weird. Often, a nation winning many
medals ranks below than nations with fewer medals. The reason being only Gold
Medals are considered for overall ranking. So, if a nation wins 2 Gold medals
and a other nation wins 15 Silver or Bronze medals, first nation is ranked
better. Now, logic here is Gold is GOLD!! (Gold > Silver > Bronze)
is in such international events the difference between a Gold and Silver (and
Bronze) is few milliseconds, half point etc. Therefore, making 1 Gold medal
better than infinite Silver/Bronze medals or 1 Silver medal better than
infinite Bronze medals is just not done!
be comparable chart for better overall performance based standings. Here’s a
suggestion – 1 >> 2 >> 3
ratio scheme. (1 Gold = 2 Silvers = 3 Bronzes), which means a Silver Medal
equals 1.50 Bronze Medals. If there is a tie we can give preference to better
an event a Japan wins 3 Golds, Fiji Wins 12 Bronzes, Turkmenistan wins 7
Origin: The list from like 14 years ago. It either came from www.otherarena.com which no longer exists (you can search for it in the Wayback Machine), a .txt file from the TNM7 wrestling simulator (you could choose different moves for the wrestlers so they had a text file to tell you what each move was) or it might have come from someone associated with tOA/CRZ's Slashdot websites. That's where I'd go for that. Heck it might have even been developed back during the Prodigy days and just constantly updated.
