Hungary at the London 2012 Olympics

This thread is to track our athletes at the 2012 Olympics in London.

How many medals do you think we will win this time?

I am hoping for 10 golds

HAJRA MAGYAROK !!!

Én soha nem felejtem,
Magyarnak születtem!

Itt élek Európa szívében, vízilabdában mi vagyunk a császárok és igenis nálunk élnek a világ legszebb női. Magyarország, én így szeretlek!

Tehetségben nincs hiány, hiszem hogy jó lesz még a magyar foci!

RIA,RIA, HungáRIA!!!

I heard something like, if you look at the size and population of our country, we accumulate the most gold metals or something like that.

Does anyone know anything more about this?

Yes, it's the average goal medal per 1 m population.

For example, if Hungary get 10 gold medals in the Olympics, that means we average 1 gold medal every 1 million people. For USA, they would need to get 300 gold medals to reach our level

it is true

We are talking about the summer Olympics

Hungary - 159 gold medals with a population of 10,008,703 (2010 numbers by world bank) = 1.59

Sweden - 142 gold medals with a population of 9,379,116 (2010 numbers by world bank)
= 1.51

we win, yay.

Most of those medals were won in the Communist days...if you compare the medals being won currently to the Communist days...it's no contest.

less countries were competetive in those days too. plus the fact that there were many sports only commie countries took serious. or, maybe in other words, played with full pros under the camouflage of a fake amateur status. plus doping and stuff. even now, all sports we are good at in olympic games are sports only a handful people would watch. swimming being the only exception. it's all nice and fun seeing Hungary collecting some medals, but then again, I wouldn't overrate it.

well that's a no brainer... Communism was big on sports. What's your point though? Were they not magyar athletes who won those medals?

Yeah thanks szövkap, I had to let off some steam last night with that bullspit. I've read a lot of conspiracy theories, got a little angry, got hammered, got a litte carried away, but I deleted it, so it's all good. I felt like a real man going to work today after I let off some steam, I haven't felt that good in years but have a major hangover. Sometimes when you read these theories, try booze, get angry and let off some steam, it usually works.

Can't wait for the Olympics to start, can't wait for water polo in action, hear some good soccer teams will be there too. The Olympics is always a time for rejoycing, I take the games seriously and really the only time I'll watch TV for hours. Water polo is going to be boffo man!

Sure they were Magyars..the point is that today we're nowhere near what used to be and every Olympics we go down in the count of all time medals.

Szovkap analysed it properly!
