We’re approaching the finishing line of the London 2012 Olympics and the race for top spot in our 2012 Olympics GDP Adjusted Medals Ranking is going down to the wire. A single gold by the small nation of Grenada was sufficient to propel them into first place yesterday but today they have been overtaken by Jamaica with 3 golds, 3 silvers and 3 bronzes. Jamaica came top of the 2008 Olympics GDP Adjusted Ranking and it looks like they will be tough to beat this time too. Meanwhile, there are gripping contests lower down the ranking as well. Hungary moves into 3rd place with a very creditable 15 medals, of which 8 are gold. The hosts, Great Britain, hang on to 4th place, while other large nations are finally starting to move up – China 6th, Russia 7th and the USA 9th.
