As Finland has about the same population as Denmark, this only tightens the intrigue in the question of 'the closest 5-million community' :-o

 On the other note, Hungary seems to grab fair share of medals this year.

Paradoxally have the rowing classes at the ongoing olympics been disturbed by high winds and uneven waters, meanwhile the sailing classes have been disturbed by changing wind (triangular circuit must be against the wind from start) and no wind!
May I suggest an indoor watersports class for next olympics:

Actually I've just watched the two girls in the 49'erFX making it 4th hence maintaining their total 1st!, and it is hard to claim that this class is a 'sitting sport' :-o

The girl in Laser Radial class retrieved from 20-some place to the mentioned 3rd by "then I just sailed faster than the other (after having cleaned the stick-down keel from an attaching plastic bag)" :-)

Local guy and rookie, Michael Hansen, makes it amid in the massive Laser class: https://www.rio2016....s-sa-laser-men# !

I think that the statistic changes through the event and most of the GB favourite sports are over at this early time :-/
As there among Danes is an argued fear of NOT getting any medals it was a relief that a Dane became silver in road-bicycling at the very first day this year.
Danish focus is on the different watersports and the rowing athlets haven't dissapointed this year, the sailors seem to have fair chances as the tournaments lacks to it's end and the female swimmers have managed to break with their 4th place habit.
Often a dark horse shows up, and this time it's a wrestler who suddenly stands at the second stage of the podium - 68 years after the last Olympic medal in that catagory :-o
