    True. I think there was law passed a bit before the Olympics that the plans for the doping agency should be put into action or something to that effect.

    They should do one for golds per capita as well IMO, also the anecdote at the end about how USSR would have got 34633 medals is obviously not true as they would have been capped on the number of athletes they could have

    Best indication of who topped the medal tally should come from a Medals per event entered ratio imo.

    That would just favour countries who don't select athletes with no hope, despite them being qualified (I know Sweden have such a policy and Norway have it in theory)

    Was talking about having no hope. Still think it would be the fairest way though, despite that particular issue[/stubborn]

    Nah, because in some sports there are qualification standards (I think) and so countries that just have **** athletes in those would benefit (ie basically what Hakon said but with enforced policy as to picky selection)
