With those two additions to the gold medal club, this quiz is much less interesting than it used to be. Only really curious omission left I think is Portugal.
Still, it's funny that Cameroon, Mexico and Nigeria have more gold medals in football than Portugal or some other countries.
Next point is, that East Germany would probably never had been able to win any medal, if there had been an organization like WADA in the 50's already
The Bender twins and Petersen. As a Cotbusser, I have to correct that :D
Their women's team is quite good. But have never won gold.
But I thought that, for the average person, the fact that the United States and Hungary were the top two would be surprising, and maybe the fact that East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Cameroon and Mexico had all won more gold medals than Portugal or the Netherlands might also be surprising. Prior to the last Olympics they had also won more than Brazil or Germany. Most people don't think of Cameroon as more accomplished at football than Brazil.
But if they win the world cup that year, they won't win the next Olympics. 😂
But you should not be too surprised about the results if you are aware about men's football olympic medals being absolutely no indicator of the real football powers. For a long time only "amateur players" were allowed to play at the Olympics and therefore communist countries like East Germany, Czechoslovakia or Yugoslavia could send their best players, who were >only officially< amateurs, while the big western football nations had to send their secondaries. Today I there is an age limit, players have to be under 23 years I think, so you won't see Messi, Ronaldo and Co.
