Yes, but it’s not like the skill gap is that large. Though Sweden has 2x the population of Denmark doesn’t mean the Swedish representatives will be twice as good. The skill gap is like <5%

Point was that, if the athletes they can bring was adjusted to population, the added athletes would be worse than the current ones so it doesn't matter!

Well more athletes means there’s a higher chance of an athlete having a good day and overperforming.

that's a laugh you are taking 27 Countries and grouping them together
2021-08-05 23:05
Well they have 20+ different participants to score a medal with so that's kind of an advantage
2021-08-05 23:06
Because if you group them together a posteriori it does not reflect the conditions that a single country has to fulfill in the Olympics. For example every country has a set number of athletes for each sport and each category of said sport that they can take. So in this situation the country "EU" was competing with much more participants than it would have been allowed if was a single entity.
2021-08-05 23:14
didnt know it's 2022 already
2021-08-05 23:16
if you look at number of Athletes then EU should be first. Germany has more people at Tokyo than us. then you add like france,Italy and Spain.
