The Points Table – Day One

If you go back into the mists of history you’ll find that newspaper regularly published points tables for the Olympic Games instead of the now familiar medal tables. So, using the formula that a few sporting bodies like the IAAF still occasionally use, here’s the Winter Olympic points table after day 1.

The scoring table is as follows;
1st 8 points
2nd 7
3rd 6
4th 5
5th 4
6th 3
7th 2
8th 1
If countries are level on points their single best result is the tiebreak.
