Olympic Medals per GDP (or, Tim’s grasping attempt to prove Canada’s real achievement)

At the request of my professor, intent on proving Canada’s worth on a global stage, I have researched the GDP for Slovenia ($56,470 mil USD). Slovenia’s total medal count (3) divided by its GDP gives us 5.3, thus giving us  data for the new “real” rankings for medal count.

I was unable to find the statistics showing how much money Slovenia spent preparing for the 2010 Winter Games.
