PEKING CHINA Olympia 2008: Der einzig wahre Medaillenspiegel - China und USA sportliche Weltmächte? Lächerlich.

Er gehört zu den letzten Mysterien der zivilisierten Welt, wie die tägliche Börseninformationsseite "meiner" Sparkasse im "Trierischen Volksfreund" (dazu später vielleicht mal mehr). Nur er kommt nur alle 4 Jahre wieder und verschwindet dann in der Versenkung bzw. bei Wikipedia, wie z.B. der von Olympia 2004 in Athen.

Was soll er eigentlich besagen? Da werden Länder aufgelistet, die ein paar, viele oder ganz viele Medaillen erreicht haben. Aber was sagt das schon? Vor allem wem? Der normalen Bevölkerung, die vielleicht beim Einmarsch der Teams zum ersten (und letzten) Mal von der Existenz manches Landes überhaupt hören, geschweige es denn auf einem Globus auf Anhieb einigermaßen lokalisieren/globalisieren kann.
Was sagt die absolute Zahl denn aus? Nichts! Das erinnert fatal an die Karawane an Berufsschwadroneuren, die durch die Talk-Shows mit der magischen Zahl von 400.000 Ingenieuren, die China angeblich jährlich ausbildet, zieht. (Mal ganz gesehen von der fdurchaus ragwürdigen Qualität: FAZonline - Ingenieure in China - Viel Masse, wenig Klasse Von Frank Hollmann )
Die absoluten Zahlen müssen schließlich in Bezug gesetzt werden - und zwar zur absoluten Bevölkerungszahl, um die "Leistungsfähigkeiten" der Sportnationen überhaupt vergleichen zu können. Dann zeigt sich allerdings für manchen eine Überraschung.
Angeblich "führende" Sportnationen wie die USA und China, ja auch Russland finden sich unter ferner liefen, machne so gar keine Angst mehr. Einzig Australien kann seine Spitzenposition (4.Platz) nicht nur halten, sondern auf den 3. Platz relativ verbessern.


Hier nochmal der "klassisch-traditionelle" Medaillenspiegel, um den sich kaum noch jemand Gedanken macht - wie bei vielen Traditionen, deren Sinn irgendwann nicht mehr hinterfragt wird ("Haben wir immer schon gemacht."... ).

Die für 2004 geschätzten EInwohnerzahlen entstammen dem CIA-Factbook. Denn wenn es einer weiß, dann ist es wohl die CIA.

Die hat - pünktlich zu Olympia 2008 in Peking - dankenswerterweise die Einwohnerzahlen einem Update unterzogen. Schließlich hat allein CHINA (63 Medaillen in 2004!!) inzwischen weit mehr als 1, 35 Mrd. Einwohner und ist damit schon vor der Aufhebung der Ein-Kind-Politik (wegen zu vieler Mädchen-Abtreibungen und folgendem Geschlechterungleichgewicht) deutlich an dem zweitbevölkerungsreichsten aber mit am medaillenärmsten ( 1 Medaille in 2004 !!) Land Indien vorbeigezogen.
