The Per Capita Champions Of Pyeongchang
Given its small population, Norway should theoretically top the per capita medal table with ease. However, the tiny Principality of Liechtenstein, which is squeezed in between Switzerland and Austria, tops that medal league due to a single medal win. Tina Weirather won a bronze medal in the women's super-G and given Liechtenstein's population of just 37,340, it equates to 26.15 medals per million of the population, according to Bloomberg. Norway still comes second quite comfortably with its medal haul equaling 7.33 per million of its inhabitants. When the same principle is applied to the U.S. it only manages a meagre 0.07 medals per million people.
