Looks like a major drop off after the top 5. Kind of sad

Dave

I think this was because all of the teams who’s fans brought vuvuzelas to the pool were docked medals. Or maybe that’s wishful thinking. Ban those things, please.

How is there major drop off? Canada and Croatia are tied with 2 gold medals and you have to look at the silver medals as a tie breaker. If you want a list based on the total number of medals the drop off is not from 12 to 2 but rather 12 to Japan’s 6 and then Great Britain’s 4. Obviously still a significant drop off, but not as bad as it looks.
