Turkey, Spain, Russia, Germany and Greece form a top 5 well above the other participants. They each won more than 50 medals – except for Greece, with only 48 prizes – and got a total number of points greater than 150. Totaling 301 medals won, this top tier group walked off with 48% of the 624 medals awarded, in other words almost half of them. Equally impressive is that the first place of the ranking has been reached 7 out of 8 times by one of this group’s members – France rocked the boat in 2007. Such a domination doesn’t happen randomly though: this group earns the highest average points-per-medal ratio (3.7).
