(Almost forget the diving pool which was closed after turning green). There was not a big surprise on the medal table, but now in this article we will get a closer look, and see some details and interesting facts. A lot of great athletes made proud their country and we could see big unforgettable moments by legends like Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Katinka Hosszu.

A/B test:

With our A/B split test calculator we can say it is very hard to say which country is better. “The experienced difference is negligible. It cannot be told which is better. If there is real difference, it’s likely to be below 15%.”  Check the detailed result here, and compare any country you wish:  . So even if USA is on the first place we can say there is not a big difference between these two countries.

Correlation test

The other question is: Is there a correlation between Competitors number and winner’s number? According to the correlation test: “The experienced correlation is strong. In many cases, the bigger the Number of Competitors, the bigger the Number of Medals.”  Check the detailed result here:
