Your points have been awarded. Thanks for letting me know. There was a bug where the points table was only getting built every hour instead of instantly.

Sarajevo should be in the second place by the number of Muslims. It has 85% Muslims. Tirana has 65%.

Where did you get your 85% figure? I can only find ethnic division statistics; the most recent was from ~2002, and claimed ~77% Bosniaks in the city. But assuming Bosniaks = Muslim (safe) and that the stats haven't changed much over the last 15 years (less safe), your assertion that it beats out Tirana seems correct (assuming the other numbers used by Quizmaster are correct).

Are those two cities the only capitals to host the Winter Olympics? Or is the clue missing some superlative qualifier?

European cities that have hosted the Winter Olympics are: Chamonix, St. Moritz (twice), Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Oslo, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Innsbruck (twice), Grenoble, Sarajevo, Albertville, Lillehammer, Turin, and Sochi. Sarajevo and Oslo are the only capitals.

European capitals that have hosted the Summer Olympics are: Athens (twice), Paris (twice, third time in 2024), London (three times), Amsterdam, Stockholm, Berlin, Helsinki, Rome, and Moscow. Barcelona will join the list if Catalonia successfully secedes. In fact, the only non-capitals to host the Summer Olympics are Antwerp, Munich, and Barcelona.

Im pretty sure Istanbul is in european part of turkey so it probably has way higher muslim population than both paris and berlin. I think that needs to be fixed

But it's not the capital of Turkey. And, unlike Istanbul, no part of Ankara is in Europe.

Nice quiz! "Least precipitation" was the hardest for me. That was the only one where I had to resort to typing in capitals completely at random.
