Alternative Olympics 2012 Medal Table

Looking simply at the numbers of medals won in the 2012 Olympic Games may not actually tell us which countries over-performed against our expectations based on the size of the talent pool available to them.

Check out the Intelligence Unit's Alternative Olympics 2012 Medal Table to find out.

Note: users will need to enable macros in Excel for the ranking function to work properly.

This file now shows the final medal standings.
