To me, this is a better representation of a country’s commitment to the Olympics.

There are even more discrepancies further down the list but I kept to the top dozen.
Some number rounded for easy reading.
I’m sure I’ll get some flack for doing this!

About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
