Olympic Medals/$10Billion GDP

There is no great significance to this statistic, but it was interesting to do, i.e., to see how Olympic achievement corelates to the wealth of each country. The score of each country is calculated by dividing the total number of medals won at Athens 2004 Olympic games by the GDP expressed as tens of billions of US$.
