agreed. I didn't type 'west germany' but it gave me credit for it when i typed plain old Germany. needs to be consistent across the board.

It is consistent. West Germany = Germany = Federal Republic of Germany. East Germany = German Democratic Republic. East Germany was a separate country that no longer exists.

I would have thought that either Czechoslovakia or Yugoslavia would have showed up. Didn't Sarajevo host the 1984 Winter Olympics?

Yes, but it doesn't mean that their athletes were terribly outstanding. In fact, they won only one medal during those Olympics.

Amazing that Czechia scored 31 medals since 1994 while the ČSSR (which I still think should work as a type-in) only scored 25 from 1928 to 1990.

Interesting to note; of the 130 medals, the Netherlands won 121 in long track speed skating and another 5 in short track speed skating.

Probably because the USA are better known for their prowess in the Summer Olympics. Interesting, though, that USA still shows up at 100%, so your fail hasn't made much of a splash.

If the East Germany medals would be considered as Germany/West Germany medals it would be the country with most medals ever.

Yeah except that if you could all medal won by the United States, USSR, and Norway as medals won by Zimbabwe then Zimbabwe would be #1 and it would make the same amount of sense.
