The 2015 World Wrestling Championships in Vegas were an absolute blast. So much fun, so much good wrestling, and another year’s worth of data to plug into the Googletron 4000.
I tallied up points based on placement of every Olympics and World Championship by country from 2003 to 2015. I award points for 1st to 8th on a scale of 10, 8, 6, 6, 6, 3, 3, 2, 1 (or 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 for the years that award only 1 bronze). Click on the pictures to embiggen.
That last pie chart is a good reminder of just how much more difficult it is to win medals now as compared to the “good old days”.
School’s back in session, which means it’s time to get ready for wrestle offs and the NCAA season. Also the Mets are making a playoff run and football season in back in action. Yes it is a great time for sports, that is for certain.
